BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A popular Greek restaurant on Elmwood Avenue is up for sale, its owner announced on Wednesday amid a simultaneous announcement that he will be expanding another one of his businesses.
Paul Tsouflidis said it saddens him to put the restaurant, which his parents started in 1982, up for sale, but said he must do so to follow new opportunities with his other venture, the Newbury Street cafe.
Newbury Street, which focuses on healthy foods and drink, has been a wild success, Tsouflidis said. He said in the two years since opening shop, his customer base has exploded as they convert people to healthy food options.
In addition to expanding Newbury Street locally, he plans to pursue national ventures and announced he would like to become a licensed franchiser.
On his decision to sell his family’s shop, Tsouflidis said, “There is no doubt that Acropolis has many more generations of western New Yorkers to serve.”
Tsouflidis said he wants the new owner to love the area, people and neighborhood as much as he does.
