Q: How long has Kronos been in business?
Kronos Foods, Inc. was founded in 1975 by Chris Tomaras, a Chicago entrepreneur. Gyros was in its infancy and was served only in a handful of restaurants. Various chefs made gyros, each offering their own quality and taste. It was then that Kronos developed and successfully marketed the first Gyros cones—pre-formed and ready to use. This eliminated the inconsistency with individual chefs making the product. And the standardized Gyros cones led the way to the success and popularity of the Kronos Gyros sandwich. This proved to be the foundation of Kronos Foods, Inc.
