Acting Governor Guadagno Welcomes Greek Food Manufacturers Megas Yeeros to Lyndhurst

Trenton, NJ – Highlighting New Jersey as a welcoming home for foreign direct investment, Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today joined Greece-based Megas Yeeros, LLC to celebrate the grand opening of its new 40,000-square-foot production and headquarters facility in Lyndhurst, which will create approximately 110 new jobs.

“We know that companies have their pick of locations when expanding, and it is our job to nurture an inviting, business-friendly environment that attracts companies like Megas Yeeros,” said Acting Governor Guadagno.  “Megas Yeeros has flourished in Greece and Europe, and, when the time came, they chose New Jersey as the home for their American manufacturing facility because they saw a proactive Administration eager to partner with them to achieve success.”

Megas Yeeros worked with the Business Action Center and the Economic Development Authority during its expansion into the US market. 

“Megas Yeeros is thrilled to be operating in the great state of New Jersey,” said Nikos Stergiou, General Manager of Megas Yeeros. “Our growing company with roots in Greece will continue to expand, adding local jobs and becoming more involved in the local communities.  We currently have distribution for our products throughout the northeast, Chicago, the mid-Atlantic, and Connecticut; and growing every day.  Megas Yeeros is quickly becoming part of the rich tradition of successful profitable companies with their headquarters in New Jersey.”

Megas Yeeros’ parent company, Megas Gyros SA, is one of the most successful Gyros producers in the Greek Market and exports to ten different European markets. The company was established in 2007 and produces traditional Greek meats like souvlaki, befteki and kebab for distribution in stores across the Central and Eastern United States.
