1,300 Greek chicken meals: Niko’s wishes to set a record in one day
Restaurant owner Nikos Lippas told Joliet Patch that he plans to sell 1,300 Greek chicken dishes on December 15. Its Joliet take-out and delivery restaurant is located at 20 Ohio Street, on the northern edge of downtown, one block from St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Church.
Niko’s Pizzeria is now taking orders for Greek chicken dinners. By 4 p.m. on Saturday, Niko had already placed 170 Greek chicken orders.
“I feel positive and excited to beat my own record,” commented Lippas. “We’re ready. We’ve fixed the oven, so we hope everything goes as planned.”
Even though the oven that broke mid-afternoon managed to delay hundreds of Greek chicken orders on October 27, Lippas said most of his customers were understanding and very sympathetic to his plight.
“Even the people who waited an hour or two, just to have the Greek chicken, were willing to wait,” Lippas said on Saturday. “We were excited, and it was a different experience reaching 1000, and now we’re trying to do more because a lot of people didn’t get it, so I hope this time everyone will be able to get it. “
You get half a chicken, Greek potatoes, and Greek rice for $ 9.99. Lippas said he had to increase the price of the dinner by $ 1 due to inflation.
In October, he sold the Greek chicken dishes for $ 8.99. “The chicken has ridden like crazy,” he remarked.
Lippas strongly urges customers to place their orders this weekend, or Tuesday, when it reopens.
