Name of business: Greek’s Pizzeria
Location: 6317 Martin Luther King Blvd., Anderson
Owner: Jeremy Stow
Opened: At current location, Dec. 29, 2012
Hours: Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. through 11 p.m.
Services: Dine-in, carryout and delivery pizza and other food
In the owners’ words: Lay down a tarp before asking Jeremy Stow to describe the food at Greek’s Pizzeria.
“Our super secret sauce and dough recipe are second to none,” said restaurant owner Stow. “Oh, the breadsticks are so good, (and) the best hand-tossed pizza you will ever taste.”
Greek’s, whose motto is — appropriately enough — “it’s our taste,” moved in December from Anderson’s northeast side to the old Red Brick Inn building, 6317 Martin Luther King Blvd.
“When we found out the Red Brick Inn was available we couldn’t pass on the opportunity,” Stow said.
The decor in the new dining room is a nod to the building’s previous tenant, which opened in Anderson in the late 1920s. “We plan to continue to improve and update the property while preserving its (the building’s) history,” he said.
Greek’s history in Madison County is a little shorter, having only opened in its old location near Anderson University in February of last year.
But Stow said its future looks bright.
The restaurant has outdoor seating, and is looking into adding a beer garden if and when it gets its liquor license. That could also bring wine and Indiana craft beer in March, said restaurant operations manager Clay Sexton.
The restaurant also plans to continue offering live music by local artists, along with other entertainment like car and motorcycle shows.
While the history of the building was definitely a plus for Greek’s, there were other reasons factoring into the move, including failed lease negotiations with its former landlord.
The new location also lets the restaurant broaden its service area to include Lapel and Pendleton, in addition to Anderson.
Sexton said the larger market has boosted business, and Greek’s has been able to hire 20 more employees over the old store.
Stow added, “We hope to become a favorite for all of Anderson and the surrounding market while being a great Anderson representative to visitors.”
