Back in 1963, Jimmy Antonopoulos immigrated to Canada from Nafplio, Greece and began working in a restaurant in the busy Bay Street business district. During this time he noticed that people had very few options to enjoy freshly prepared home cooked meals when on the go. Seeing his opportunity he started his first restaurant offering a menu inspired by his traditional Greek family recipes and 34 years later he is still offering those same great recipes. Today there are 55 Jimmy the Greek quick service restaurants across Canada. Jimmy’s instincts were correct!

Our menu over the years hasn’t changed and that’s because our commitment to you hasn’t changed. We provide traditional Greek recipes made in the traditional Greek way that means never cutting corners for efficiency or cost. We serve you great meals quickly because we put all the time in preparing before you get here, that means long hours and busy days but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
