Who we are

It started with a Greek favorite, gyros. And then things got really interesting. Chris Tomaras, a Chicago entrepreneur, loved gyros—but noticed that each restaurant offering the Greek delicacy had different recipes, resulting in vastly different tastes...and different quality. So, Chris rolled up his sleeves and developed a better way: It was with his success and hard work that Kronos was born.

Since 1975, Kronos has been making the highest quality Gyros for restaurants, especially for you.
Throughout several decades, we’ve established Kronos as the nation’s largest foodservice manufacturer of authentic Mediterranean foods. From the beginning, we’ve understood the importance of delivering authentic and quality foods. Our mission was to deliver all things Mediterranean to the food industry with unsurpassed, consistent quality within all our products and services. Today, we are applying that same philosophy to world cuisine.

We know you love us for our gyros—but stay tuned to see all the new ways we will wow you with our new products!
