THE YIRO’S SHOP: SEVEN STORES & COUNTING
Nick Mitrossilis was just 24 when he opened The Yiros Shop five years ago in Brisbane’s Jame Street. With little business experience but a desire to bring authentic, fresh Greek food to Brisbane, Nick said he’s proud of its growth.
“Every year the sales are consistent. When it comes to food, we just stick to what we know. We consistently serve delicious food with great service,” Nick said.
Five years in, The Yiros Shop is a strong brand with five stores across Brisbane and two more planned to open in 2020 both on Brisbane’s northside.
Nick has the systems, processes and technology to enable efficient operations and growth. So much so, The Yiros Shop will be available as a franchise for $350k per store, including the franchising fee.
“We have systems in place so we can gather data on inventory levels, sales, rostering and marketing. As a result, financially The Yiros Shop has a consistent growing turnover and shows great profits.”
With 2020 looking to be another great year for The Yiros Shop, he said his reasons for getting into business in the first place remain present: “Walking into the stores and seeing all kinds of people young and old enjoying our food and service. Being Greek, feeding people is in our blood and we’re really excited to make it even easier for people to get their Yiros fix and enjoy fast, flavourism and fresh Greek food.”
