A ‘Coming Soon’ sign advertising a soon-to-be Kosmos Greekafe hangs from the top of a vacant restaurant building at 2136 N. College Avenue in Fayetteville. The location was once home to Arby’s.

There aren’t a lot of places to get a gyro on College Avenue these days. Luckily (for gyro fans), that situation will be remedied shortly.

Michael Theodore, owner of Kosmos Greekafe on Dickson Street has purchased a building at 2136 N. College Avenue (the old Arby’s), and plans to begin selling gyros, falafels, and other Greek food items at the location in the coming months.

“We are in the beginning stages of remodeling,” Theodore told us. “We anticipate opening at the beginning of summer 2011.”

Theodore hopes to utilize the new space to be able to accommodate more large catering orders, and to handle larger groups in the restaurant. He also plans to expand the menu a bit.

“Look for new Greek items such as a Greek Pasta Dish, Pastichio, and Spanakopita,” Michael said.

Free parking, an expanded kitchen, a larger seating area, and the ability to have a pick-up window were a few of the things that were attractive to Theodore about the new location.

“Kosmos on Dickson is well known to people at the University and downtown area. I want to make Kosmos more accessible to the rest of Fayetteville,” he said. “When this particular location came up for sale, I jumped on it.”

Michael told us that he has not yet decided if the new location will be an expansion, or if he’ll move his business entirely from Dickson Street to College Avenue.

“It’s still up in the air,” he said.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
