Today I want to share an amazing contest with you guys!

I have been a fan of Jimmy the Greek since I moved to Canada 18 years ago. I have all these memories of eating lunch at the mall or at the office and always treating myself with some chicken souvlaki, rice, potatoes, yum!

Last week I had the chance to attend a private dinner with Jimmy and his family to celebrate over 30 years of success and what a treat it was! My husband and I got to sit down with him and chatted with him and his lovely daughters.

His story is one of determination and passion, moving to Toronto back in 1963 from Nafplio Greece and working at a restaurant in the financial district.

He saw an opportunity to launch his own business to prepare homemade quick service food and went for it. His risk paid off and nowadays there are over 50 Jimmy the Greek locations across Canada.
