How It All Started

How It All Started

After a  vacation to Greece, Pete and his wife Trish enjoyed the local flavors of Athens and particularly the Gyros. Pete grew up spending his summers in Greece and always enjoyed grabbing Gyros from the local shops.  In Greece a gyro is like a hot dog or burger in the States; they are accessible everywhere. Back home in Philadelphia Pete and Trish noticed there were Greek restaurants, but nothing like they had experienced in Greece with fast casual Gyro’s. Pete and Trish had the vision and desire to bring the Authentic Gyro experience they had in Greece to Philadelphia.
