Irvine, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Zesty Olives Mediterranean Grill, a contemporary fast-casual restaurant concept and life-style brand, continues to expand with its newest opening at Diamond Jamboree Shopping Center, located at 2750 Alton Parkway, Unit 131, Irvine, CA 92606. The brand launched in the US in July 2021 and currently operates 2 locations in Orange County, California and has an aggressive national expansion plan to open over 50 restaurants in the next 5 years through franchising and company-owned restaurant development.
The concept is owned by Mitrevi Restaurant Group, a manager and operator partnership between a brother and sister, restaurant veterans with passion for Real Food and Authentic Hospitality, who after 20 years being apart, gaining unique experiences around the world, decided to come together and launch Zesty Olives.
Zesty Olives was founded on the commitment of serving clean, fresh, never frozen, cravable and delicious Mediterranean dishes paired with unparalleled hospitality and customer care. The focus is on promoting healthy choices and lifestyle for ultimate wellness and well-being through an attractive business model, affordable price point for high-quality clean and fresh ingredients in an energetic, fun, and caring environment, on-premise as well as off-premise.
“It’s our bold vision to revive the restaurant industry and bring back the true meaning of a restaurant as a place for guests to be refreshed, restored and made whole again” with uncompromising focus on quality, service, and genuine care,” said Boris Mitrev, CEO.
The menu is centered around a variety of grilled proteins such as chicken, beef, lamb, salmon and falafel served in a wrap, over a fresh green salad or in a bowl with grilled veggies, herbed rice, salads, humus and tzatziki. The diverse yet simple menu options satisfy a variety of healthy diet plans including Vegetarian, Vegan, Keto, Alkaline & Gluten Free. Some of our favorite dishes include grilled salmon bowl, halloumi fries (keto), chicken wrap, zoodles tossed in an aged parmesan cheese wheel, green salad with falafels, zesty olives and authentic humus and tzatziki served with lamb meatballs and warm pita bread.
Zesty Olives has been active in the community and improving lives not only by nourishing the bodies with healthy and delicious food but by creating local jobs and employment opportunities and transforming lives for many residents. Most notably, Zesty Olives has partnered with the OC Rescue Mission shelter to help transition folks back into the work force.
“As we continue to grow and expand, Zesty Olives will continue to positively impact the local economies,” said Boris Mitrev, CEO.
