Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe Opens 2nd Location On Gunbarrel

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Taziki’s Mediterranean Café is opening its second location at 2020 Gunbarrel Road. Brad Emendorfer, the operating partner for TOC, LLC, said the locally-owned group has anticipated opening in the East Brainerd area since the company formed in 2010. 

Taziki’s offers the same innovative, fresh-made recipes that were initially created in Birmingham and have been served for two years at the Market Street location. A refreshing break from the typical, with flavors inspired by the Mediterranean, highlighted by simple ingredients, fresh grilled meats, original sauces and healthy sides, Taziki’s offers something for everyone.

 
 
Officials said, "Today’s diner has great demands for a health conscience diet, along with a fast-casual experience. Taziki’s provides both of these services with an elevated quality of food that is prepared fresh daily. Every guest at Taziki’s can take full control of their dining experience, for a reasonable price, without sacrificing the quality of an upscale restaurant. Whether you order to go or prefer a dine in experience with your family, Taziki’s food is deliciously different." 
 
Taziki’s Mediterranean Café was founded in Birmingham, in 1998 by Keith and Amy Richards. The addition of the local Gunbarrel location will grow its presence to 28 cafes. Taziki’s is open for lunch and dinner, offers take-out as well as catering for events large and small.
