Shawarma / Gyros / Döner
I would be really interested in hearing from somebody that is running a Gyros, Shawarma, or Döner truck. These three have in common that they come from meat spitzes and are usually served in a hot and chewy bun or roll.
For anyone wondering, Döner is the German Turkish version of Shawarma founded by a Turkish immigrant in Germany. It is now dominating almost all of Europe when it comes to street food. In the Middle East you find mostly the early Shawarma. It is only a question of time until the might Döner will sweep the US too.
I am highly interested in opening a Food Truck or renting a space but have no experience in this business. How much does a good Spitz cost, and does anyone know where I could buy the meat? I have contacted some restaurants but they almost all stack their own meat.
Thank you, everyone!
