TAKA TAKA'S HISTORY
The First Taka Taka was opened in Corfu, some 25 years ago by Stamatios Miaris – aka Mike. The brand grew well and enjoyed immense success, particularly due to the freshness of the product and the authentic flavours of the Greek family kitchen.
After a few years the opportunity arose for Mike to move to the UK where he opened the Taka Taka Triangle restaurant in Queens Row, Bristol. Once again the combination of the freshness of product and the authentic flavours of the Greek family kitchen was a great success. Within 3 years, the Taka Taka Triangle restaurant carved itself a place in local legend, amongst all age groups and demographics – from the youngsters, tourists, clubbers to the office workers. Mike and his teams unwaning commitment and determination to offer the very best of Greek street food to the people of Bristol continued and Taka Taka has since opened a further four Taka Taka Restaurants in Bristol, Bath and Bournemouth.
The strength of the Brand has been proven by Taka Taka’s commitment to build and open the Bournemouth Restaurant in November 2021 in the midst of the Covid epidemic. The restaurant is excelling and growing steadily week on week.
We are not a new startup venture, Taka Taka has been in the business for over 25 years and is still making and selling the Highest Quality of healthy Greek/Mediterranean food. we have served our apprenticeship over these 25 years running our own restaurants for many years in the U.K and before that in Corfu. Made the mistakes as we have matured, through broken nails and gritty determination and are now a very profitable business looking forward to moving to the next step of our expansion – Franchising.
Greek Street Food is currently the second or third most popular street food (depending on survey) and is part of an industry worth around £19 Billion which means our potential is vast.
It is our aim to make Taka Taka the Name of choice for Greek Street Food across both the High Streets of the UK and eventually Worldwide, using the Highest Quality Products and Standards of Service to deliver the ‘Very Best Greek Street Food Experience.”
