Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe is scheduled to open June 14 at 205 S. Kings Drive – across the street from Chipotle in Midtown. Zoës Kitchen is 0.2 miles away, thus the much anticipated* “Midtown Mediterranean Showdown.”

*Note: Maybe the anticipation is just me… I haven’t heard anybody actually use this line. I love Zoës and Mediterranean food.

What is Taziki’s? The concept is similar to Zoës Kitchen – grilled meats, vegetarian dishes and salads.

Menu items include: Greek salad, Mediterranean salad, grilled chicken gyro, herb-roasted pork loin, grilled veggie plate and grilled chicken roll-ups. Full menu.

Their communications team told the Agenda that the two most popular menu items are the “Lamb Gyro made from fresh grilled boneless leg of lamb and the Grilled Chicken Feast featuring a Greek salad and choice of roasted potatoes or basmati rice.”

There are more than 50 Taziki’s restaurants in the U.S. Average net unit sales is $1.46 million.

If you’re interested in a franchise, the fee is $25,000 with a royalty fee of 4%.

Judging from our Instagram community, people are excited…
