On the heels of opening in Westwood, additional locations of the quick-service franchise are in the works. Franchisee Anton Van Happen is developing Nick the Greek locations in Thousand Oaks and Santa Monica, both of which are in the early stages, he told What Now Los Angeles. After leases are secured and renovations complete, those outposts for which Van Happen would not disclose the locations, should be open sometime next year. 

Van Happen explained to WNLA why he chose these locations, which are strategically centralized between popular neighborhoods, casting a wide net to get that Nick the Greek brand out there. Van Happen mentioned a possible future opening in Oxnard and other smaller neighborhoods. 

“I don’t have, right now, exact locations of the next locations after Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks,” Van Happen said. “Come next year we’ll have a better idea of where to put the other locations.” 

While these restaurants are meant to draw in the most publicity, what really sets Nick the Greek aside from other Mediterranean restaurants is that it stays true to its Grecian roots, according to Van Happen. Most Mediterranean aren’t specific to Greek, he said. “I guess you call it street food,” Van Happen explained about Nick the Greek’s authenticity.
