PANAMA CITY BEACH — A new Taziki’s Mediterranean Café will open in June in Panama City Beach at Pier Park, next to the new Starbucks in the Wal-Mart outparcel.

This will be the second Taziki’s location in Bay County and the seventh in Florida. The Pier Park Taziki’s will be 3,300 square feet and will include covered outdoor patio seating. The recipes are all made fresh and inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. Taziki’s is open for lunch and dinner, offers take-out as well as catering.

“Panama City Beach residents and tourists will enjoy our menu full of original chef-driven recipes prepared daily from fresh ingredients,” said Bobby Touchton, owner-operator.

The Pier Park location is hiring employees for all positions including cashiers, cooks and management. Applicants are encouraged to send résumés to pierpark@tazikiscafe.com.

Taziki’s was the first national franchise to achieve REAL Certification by the United States Healthful Food Council (USHFC), the emerging national standard for foodservice nutrition and sustainability.
