A TASTE OF DETROIT, INSPIRED BY THE MEDITERRANEAN
The Olga's Kitchen odyssey began in the mid-1960's, when founder, Olga Loizon returned to the Mediterranean to visit her family. It was an opportunity for her and her three small children to get reconnected with their Greek heritage---and in the process, Olga would discover her legacy.
It was a visit to the local market square that inspired what would soon grow into an iconic Michigan brand. Here, Olga's children first tasted souvlaki, a traditional Greek sandwich of meat and vegetables wrapped in fresh-baked pita bread. Her kids were hooked---and Olga was inspired.
The first step was buying the vertical rotisserie to cook the meat. It had to be authentic. However, in the 60's, women didn't typically own businesses and she was refused the machine. But Detroiters don't give up. So, she gave her uncle the money to buy the machine for her. Soon, Olga, her kids and her new vertical rotisserie were on their way back to Michigan.
