Footballer Dimi Konstantopoulos has opened a Greek restaurant with the help of Endeavour Partnership’s commercial property team.
The Middlesbrough keeper has launched Great Greek with business partner, Nikos Pitsoulis, with a £250,000 investment from the Boro shot-stopper. The eatery, on Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough, will create 25 jobs.
Dimi Konstantopoulos said: “Opening a new restaurant is obviously quite a change of area for me. “I couldn’t have done it without a team of exceptionally patient and professional individuals to guide me every step of the way to ensure the restaurant is a great success from the very beginning.”
The 37-year-old is coming towards the twilight of his career and is branching out into new opportunities. Endeavour Partnership’s commercial property team advised Dimi on elements such as the lease and terms for the restaurant and the completion of a second lease for a further unit.
