Greek letters outside Greece

I wonder how many Czechs walking by a Greek store actually know how to read the ΛΟΥΚΆΝΙΚΟ they see on a menu board. Wouldn't it better to write it in the Latin alphabet, something like lukániko, which works for Czechs (and not only) and reflects the word's pronunciation, so that pedestrians at least know what is being advertised?
