Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe centers on fresh-casual service—a term coined to describe a category of dining that seeks to make improvements on the typical fast-casual experience. With a focus on high quality, Taziki’s offers scratch-made food in a comfortable, casual environment, all served by a knowledgeable and friendly staff. If you want to become a part of a family that takes pride in how each restaurant strives to become an integral part of their local community, then we want to talk to you. Fresh, Healthy, and Deliciously Different!

Taziki’s was created following an inspirational vacation to Greece in March 1998. Together the founders created a menu, a great name, and decided to take the gamble of a lifetime. Taziki’s grew to 4 local stores over 10 years and rapidly became a local favorite. In 2008 Taziki’s teamed with a highly respected group of restaurateurs, and looked to the future. Five years later, Taziki’s could no longer hold back the demand to share its concept with the rest of the world; thus, the franchise program was created.

Taziki’s is so committed to freshness; we have NO fryers, and NO freezers, and NO microwaves. Everything is prepared fresh daily, with NO exceptions.

“The Taziki’s brand speaks for itself. Never have I had customers more appreciative of my food or of what we do. Taziki’s is one of those rare triple threats; fantastically fresh food, true customer value, and a systems-driven framework that allows you to produce great net profits.” - Joe Norton, Franchisee, Charleston and Columbia, SC
