Our History

Gregorys Coffee opened for business in 2006 with one goal in mind: to provide you with the perfect cup of coffee. Our founder and CEO, Gregory Zamfotis, was practically raised in the food and beverage industry. From a very young age, he was immersed in his father’s businesses, and had the unique opportunity to be involved in every aspect of the operations.    

Given the incredible experiences Greg had while working alongside his father, he realized that his true passion was service, and his dream was to create something of his own. Greg decided to combine his passion for coffee with his life’s experience and launched the Gregorys Coffee brand. The invaluable lessons Greg learned while watching his father run his businesses became the pillars upon which Gregorys Coffee was built. Gregorys Coffee launched in the heart of Manhattan, focusing on quality, service, efficiency and creating a welcoming atmosphere.

The results were amazing, and it didn’t take long for the father and son team to open more locations. As the company has continued to grow, and more and more amazing people join the team, we continually defy the trend of sacrificing quality for size. Instead, we are hellbent on improving in all areas: from roasting our own coffee and baking our own pastries to ensure superior quality, to our intensive barista training program to guarantee welcoming and efficient service, to our plethora of vegan/gluten free wellness oriented products, our focus is on improving every single day. It only takes one visit to any of our thirty stores to understand that at Gregorys Coffee, we and our (G)regulars truly do See Coffee Differently.
