The history of Street Greek
Street Greek is heavily inspired by the epic and legendary stories of the Greek Gods of Olympus, and the franchise is proud to be bringing ancient, traditional recipes with fresh modern twists to a UK audience, preparing tasty dishes with speed and care and always delivering the highest quality to customers. In the words of Street Greek, “Zeus himself gave his blessing to the founding fathers of Street Greek to share [the Gods’] magical flavours with the world.”
If you’d love to help Street Greek make modern Greek street food the new standard in QSR, you’d be the perfect Street Greek franchisee, supporting the franchise’s continued growth across the UK and benefitting from the brand’s comprehensive support, unique branding and top-of-the-line ingredients (“cage free, pasture raised grass fed meats, seasonal vegetables [and other] ethically sourced ingredients” [Street Greek]).
The Street Greek brand has never been stronger. After weathering the unprecedented lockdowns of 2020/21, its locations have bounced back and are generating turnovers that match pre-Covid levels. It is also gearing up to launch a brand new service in early 2022 that will allow the franchise to grow even more.

Start a franchise in the QSR industry with a Street Greek restaurant
If everything you’ve learned thus far about Street Greek’s unique QSR offering has you increasingly keen to invest, keep reading. The three questions answered below will equip you with all the information you need in order to make a fully informed franchise investment with Street Greek and start your own restaurant franchise successfully...
1. How do you go about starting your own Street Greek business?
You can find out more about Street Greek and register your potential interest in an investment via the brand’s profile page on Point Franchise, which you’ll discover linked above. Note, before you do, that you don’t need previous experience in the Greek food sub-sector (or even necessarily in the food and beverage industry as a whole). Instead, you must simply be:
- Passionate about the Street Greek brand
- Driven and determined to succeed
- A talented people manager
- In possession of strong customer service skills
- Business-minded (preferably with business and operational experience)
2. How much do you need to invest?
In order to become a Street Greek franchisee, you’ll need to make a minimum initial investment of £120,000, with franchise fees of £15,000 and a total investment cost of £200,000. You’ll also be charged advertising and royalty fees at rates of 2% and 5% respectively. This is above the average cost of starting a franchise in the UK, which was £42,200 as of 2018 [British Franchise Association], but given that the restaurant business model is one of the most expensive franchise types, this is to be expected. Here are a couple more cost examples, for comparison, from similar restaurant franchises:
- Camile Thai - In order to become a Camile Thai franchisee, you’ll need to make a minimum initial investment of £100,000 with franchise fees of £20,000 and advertising and royalty fees both charged at 5%.
- WOLF - In order to become a WOLF franchisee, you’ll need to make a minimum initial investment of £100,000, with franchise fees of £15,000, a total investment cost of £200,000 and advertising and royalty fees charged at 2% and 6% respectively.
The true cost of your investment will largely be determined by the level at which you invest. Will you become an Owner Operator (running a single Street Greek location full time at the heart of the operation), a Manager (getting into multi-unit franchising or expanding your existing portfolio of franchises with a more hands-off, managerial role) or an Investor/Developer (completely hands-off, ideal for super-busy investors)?
