The Simple Greek allows consumers to create-their-own Greek meal, based on their preferences. They start by choosing a salad or pita that will be made right in front of them as they move down the line. Then, they add a variety of fresh meats, veggies, sauces, and spices and top it off with a variety of sides, sweets and drinks.

The Simple Greek capitalizes on the popularity and health benefits of the well-known Mediterranean diet.

The Simple Greek Livingston also chose to donate a portion of the proceeds from the Livingston Grand Opening Day to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
