and Barry Rosen noticed one of their favorite restaurants, Little Greek Fresh Grill, was looking to expand. They said they jumped at the chance to open a location in Richardson. Much of the Richardson restaurant looks and feels like the Florida agship, but over the years the Rosens have adapted the menu to include a Texas air. The potato salad, for example, is not considered traditional Greek cuisine, but Barry said it is one of their signatures. While the menu has evolved, the Rosens said the core values of the company remain unchanged. “The three things we always focus on [are]: food, service and cleanli- ness,” Barry said. “We make nearly everything from scratch.

While many restaurants faced a decline in business during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rosens said the Richardson community never wavered in their support for Little Greek. “Our restaurant did great,” Jan said. To show their appreciation, the couple is more motivated than ever to give back to Richardson. “We have never said ‘no’ to some- one asking us to donate something,” Jan said. “This is just a great commu- nity here. Everyone’s very supportive of each other.”
