OPA! of Greece Celebrates 25 Years with Greek Travel Contest

Nationally beloved Greek restaurant commemorates a quarter century of success with massive Greek travel contest

OPA! of Greece (“OPA!”) is marking a significant milestone as it celebrates 25 years as a Canadian favourite. Since its humble beginnings in Calgary, Alberta in 1998, OPA! has become Canada’s largest and fastest-growing Greek food franchise, boasting more than 110 locations from British Columbia to Ontario.

To commemorate this silver anniversary, OPA! is hosting an exciting contest to celebrate its Greek heritage. The winner will receive a 10-day, all expenses paid trip for two to Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos with travel taking place in 2024 (with some blackout dates). To enter, customers simply need to make a purchase through OPA!’s dedicated app between September 15 and November 15, 2023, and they will be automatically entered to win. Customers are allowed one entry (equivalent to one order through the app) per day.

“We are incredibly proud of the journey we’ve embarked on over the past 25 years,” says Dorrie Karras, president & CEO of OPA! Souvlaki Franchise Group. “OPA!’s growth and success in Canada are a testament to our commitment to authenticity, quality, and exceptional customer service. We’re grateful to all who have been a part of our journey – our dedicated franchisees, diligent staff, and loyal customers across the country.”

Founded on the philosophy of serving fresh, authentic dishes prepared with simple, nutritious ingredients, OPA! has consistently delivered a rich blend of Mediterranean flavours with a contagiously vibrant energy for food and family. With its innovative approach and emphasis on customer satisfaction, OPA! continually adapts to the changing needs of modern consumers, while staying true to its Greek roots.

“OPA! is not just about food. It’s about a positive, memorable dining experience that brings a piece of Greece to every customer,” adds Tina Parsons, director of operations and franchising at OPA! “This anniversary is a celebration of our heritage, our customers, and the dedicated franchisees who have made our growth and success possible.”
