The Daily Greek Terkenlis franchisee discusses its roaring success


The Daily Greek opened their cafe doors in Earlwood at the beginning of October 2019, and since then, have hardly been able to close them. With an almost overwhelming dose of popularity amongst Sydney’s Greek community, principal franchisee, Andreas Efentakis, has remained continuously amazed.

“We were expecting to be busy but never expected such a huge response,” said Efentakis.

“The reception and show of support was amazing. People are still excited with the store and are continually giving us positive feedback.”

The Daily Greek’s popularity was mostly anticipated, as it is the first franchise outside of Greece from popular dessert master, Terkenlis.

“Our products are identical those manufactured in Greece by Terkenlis as all the ingredients are imported from Greece and the recipes are identical,” said Efentakis.

The overseas Terkenlis franchise has been taken on by Savros Terkenlis’ son, Pavlos Terkenlis.

Pavlos strives to be actively involved in every aspect of his business – even when running the business from Greece.

He was present for the grand opening of The Daily Greek in Sydney, along with the staff from the Thessaloniki store.

“He tests and approves every product that his company manufactures and continually strives to improve them,” said Andreas.

The Australian staff were even trained in the Terkenlis store in Thessaloniki, Greece during a “training visit”, to ensure they were clear on delivering authentic and quality service.

While Andreas will be manning The Daily Greek in Sydney, he works very closely with Terkenlis to deliver the high quality standards of the stores in Greece.

“I am excited and honoured to be involved with such an exceptional and successful company,” said Andreas.
