Kazzi Beach Greek Expands to Manly, Creates 45 Jobs

Manly, 1 December 2020 – With the help of Sefiani, to coincide with the relaxation of outdoor dining rules, Kazzi Beach Greek today officially opened its doors to customers with a traditional plate smashing ceremony attended by Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello MP, Member for Manly James Griffin MP and Northern Beaches Council Deputy Mayor Candy Bingham.

Kazzi Beach Greek provides a traditional Greek taverna experience for customers, and thanks to approval from Northern Beaches Council, is the first restaurant at Manly’s North Steyne Beach to offer outdoor dining.

Kazzi Beach Greek owner, Peter Papas said the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic should not stop people enjoying an authentic Greek experience.

“Given we can’t travel to Greece during the COVID-19 pandemic, let’s bring a taste of Greece to Manly,” Mr Papas said. This is Kazzi’s second location having established itself as a local favourite at Balmoral Beach Mosman.

“2020 has tested us all, so it is incredibly important to build the sense of community and provide employment opportunities for locals. Those two things were an important driver for me to bring Kazzi Beach Greek to Manly.

“Importantly, I’d like to thank the NSW Government and Northern Beaches Council for their efforts to relax outdoor dining restrictions. These efforts are an important way to safely expand dining experiences for locals. These actions will help us increase our capacity to serve customers under Covid restrictions and provide upwards of 45 additional jobs for the community.

“As a proud Greek-Australian, I am passionate about bringing an authentic experience of Greece to the community. A traditional taverna experience on the beach at Manly is as close to being on a Greek island as it gets,” Mr Papas concluded.

Member for Manly, James Griffin MP praised Kazzi Beach Greek for providing an additional 45 hospitality jobs and said he looked forward to enjoying a Kazzi lamb wrap on the beach soon.

“This new Greek taverna will create 45 hospitality and other downstream jobs for locals at a time when they are needed most. From 1 December, all local councils will be able to apply to be part of the NSW Government’s streamlined approval process for outdoor dining. This will create jobs and help the economy heal after a tough year,” Mr Griffin said.

“Manly is a unique and strong community thanks to people like Mr Papas. I’m looking forward to taking my family for a traditional Greek island dining experience over the Summer break with the many people who will visit our world-famous beach,” Mr Griffin concluded.
