Yiro/Gyro Expands with Three New St. Louis Locations

Yiro/Gyro is on a growth tear. The fast-casual restaurant from brothers Mirza and Merim Imamovic (who opened the Gyro Company with their mother in South City 10 years ago) is opening the doors to three new St. Louis-area locations.


Yiro/Gyro opened locations in Fenton (657 Gravois Road) and Ballwin (15581 Manchester Road) in early January, and a Midtown location is set to open at 3900 Laclede Ave. at the end of the month.

“We are excited that it has really taken off,” Mirza tells Feast. “It’s tough to open in the winter, but we know the weather will get better soon, and we will work all the kinks out of our new spots.”

Imamovic describes the Midtown location as an “incubator location,” with expanded hours and delivery service. It will be the only Yiro/Gyro open from 11am to 8pm on Sundays, and will also offer late-night hours Thursday through Saturday.

The first location of Yiro/Gyro opened Downtown in July 2015. As Imamovic and his team – mostly made up of family and friends – focus on the openings of the new locations, they also have plans in mind for adding new items to the menu. Diners can soon look for a chicken shawarma option to top pita bread, basmati rice, lettuce or fries.

“Yiro/Gyro is something different; it’s a fast yet healthy option, and far from the typical burgers and fries joint,” Mirza says. “We are happy with how everything is working out so far.”
