On Wednesday, October 10th we had the privilege of joining our client Spitz for their 10 year anniversary in Eagle Rock! We joined founders Bryce and Robert on their newly finished patio along with their friends, family, and staff to celebrate this successful and expanding brand!
The groundwork for Spitz was laid in 2005 at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Founder Bryce Rademan returned from a semester studying abroad in Europe with dreams of bringing the Mediterranean street food (specifically döner kebab or “spit” of rotating meat) he fell in love with home to the U.S. That spring he teamed up with close friend Robert Wicklund, and both set aside their law school ambitions to follow their entrepreneurial instincts.
Rademan and Wicklund were on a mission to learn everything they could about the cuisine. They tested countless versions of recipes in their school’s kitchens, using what they had eaten every night on the streets of Europe as their guide and combining it with the California freshness, color, and flavor they were inspired by in Los Angeles. They hashed out a business plan, and on April 12th, 2006 the first Spitz location was opened a mile from their alma mater.
With support from a strong community of friends, family and local businesses, Spitz quickly became a Los Angeles sensation recognized by many local media outlets as one of the best new concepts of the year. Since then, Spitz has grown to four locations in the Los Angeles area and has recently expanded into new markets in Salt Lake City, San Diego, and Minneapolis. They have also added a craft beer, homemade sangria and seasonal cocktail program to all its locations, cementing them as a place where you can truly hang out and relax while you enjoy their distinctive street food creations.
Our Business Management and Accounting teams at KROST CPAs are proud to offer Spitz our continued support and services and we look forward to their future growth.
Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance.
