Garden Fresh Deli and Catering | Charlotte, North Carolina

The Garden Fresh story began over forty years ago in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Garden Fresh story began over forty years ago in Cincinnati, Ohio.

After immigrating to the U.S. from Greece, our founding partner, Peter Kanelos, ventured into his first restaurant. Over the next forty years, Pete successfully developed and operated several restaurants including Cincinnati's most popular sandwich deli, The Marathon Inn. The draw of family brought Pete and his wife to Charlotte, North Carolina where he and his new business partner Don opened the first Garden Fresh Deli inside Carolinas Medical Center in November 2001.

Soon after opening, it became evident that the public was ready for a health conscious alternative to traditional fast foods. The "tell tale" sign of success was the long lines of customers returning to enjoy the consistent quality, excellent service, and healthy menu offerings. It was no surprise then that when we opened our second location in the Harris YMCA, it was equally successful.

Today as a new chapter is being written in our company's future, we are discovering that potential business prospects share our enthusiasm for the Garden Fresh concept. The paradigm is shifting in our culture's dining habits, and Garden Fresh Deli is ready to supply the demands of these health conscious consumers.
