Gyro Shack Conquering the Southwest

December 12, 2023by Jason

Additional Locations are On The Docket in Albuquerque and Tucson

Boise, ID. –Gyro Shack announced today construction has commenced on two new locations, a franchise location in Albuquerque, NM, at 4201 San Mateo Blvd NE, and another corporate location in Tucson, AZ, at 1610 E Tucson Marketplace.  Both sites are in partnership with modular steel builder, RJ Russo, located in Phoenix, AZ.

Gyro Shack is continually seeking new sites in the Southwest US and hopes to sign additional leases in Albuquerque and Tucson.  Growth in the surrounding areas in New Mexico and Arizona will allow greater efficiencies in the supply chain for the Brand.

Additional franchises are sought in the US.  Gyro Shack is focused on finding the “right” franchise partners, not on “where” they are located.  “Our food sells itself. Being the frontrunner in an up-and-coming segment such as the quick-service Mediterranean creates both opportunities and challenges.  We welcome them all!” said Seth Brink, President | Sales and Development at Gyro Shack.  Gyro Shack seeks to grow immediately in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and other Western States.

Founded by the Zaharioudakis family in Boise, Gyro Shack has long been known as a fast, affordable option for delicious Greek food. With recipes based on those lovingly crafted by its founder, the brand continues to corner the market on expedient and uncommonly inventive gyro options that redefine quick-service Mediterranean cuisine.

The brand keeps customers’ time a top priority. The experience provides face-to-face window service and made-to-order gyros with meat carved Off the Spit® and fresh ingredients piled high before customers’ very eyes.

Gyro offerings range from the traditional to the extraordinary, such as the BLT and the Spicy Bacon Avocado. Vegetarian lovers of Mediterranean fare will also find plenty to tempt their palates, including a Falafel gyro, Greek salad, and hummus and pita. The tzatziki and spicy green sauces are a delicious way to top off any order to perfection.

The Gyro Shack is always looking for qualified franchisees. The brand is seeking current multi-unit franchisees with restaurant experience. Both single-unit and multi-unit franchises are currently available.
