Daphne's Greek Cafe
|Headquarters||Carlsbad, California, USA|
Daphne's was rated #11 in 2006 Top 100 Movers and Shakers in the Fast Casual magazine.
Named after the Greek symbol for excellence, Daphne’s Greek Café is a trendsetter in fast casual. The 70-unit chain recently implemented an English-speaking course for its employees. Throw in the best chain gyros and you’ve got one heckuva restaurant.— Fast Casual Magazine, January 2007
Daphne's Greek Cafe was founded by George Katakalidis in 1991. The chain entered bankruptcy in January 2010. It currently has 60 locations throughout Arizona and California and was recently purchased out of bankruptcy by an investor group headed by William Trefethen. In 2011, Daphne's name changed to Daphne's California Greek with a new concept that has been characterized as: a “hybrid” of California-meets-Greek cuisine, with an emphasis on freshness.
