This year, as Canada rings in its 150th anniversary, Jimmy the Greek is celebrating over 30 years of fast, fresh and delicious foods at over 50 quick service locations across Canada.
Jimmy Antonopoulos immigrated to Canada from Nafplio, Greece in 1963 and noticed there was both an opportunity and need for freshly prepared food in quick service. He started Jimmy the Greek in 1985 and the rest is history!
Now, as a way of saying thanks to his loyal customers and in celebration of over 30 great years, Jimmy is giving away a free trip for two to Greece along with three office lunch parties catered by Jimmy the Greek and thirty "free meal for 2" prize packs. Prizes are further detailed in the Official Contest Rules below.
Winners will be randomly selected from Instagram and Twitter Entries as detailed in the Official Contest Rules. Jimmy’s favourite Instagram and Twitter posts will be featured in our gallery below!

Jimmy Antonopoulos’ secret to 33 years of success has been to keep his offering deliciously simple. Not much has changed on the menu since he began with his first location in Toronto and for a good reason; it didn’t need to. His vision was to share his traditional Greek recipes of well-balanced home style meals to Canadians with a friendly smile.
Over the years, this simple concept has been the driving force for the growth of Jimmy The Greek restaurants across the country. Jimmy has never cut corners and personally hand selects his franchise team to ensure they share his passion for quality, integrity and hospitality. The next time you’re at a Jimmy The Greek location, we hope you enjoy your meal as much as Jimmy and his team enjoy serving it for you.
Jimmy would like to thank you for the many years of business and many more to come.
