RoliRoti Gourmet Rotisserie


Thomas Odermatt, along with 28 full-time and 14 part-time employees.


Thomas founded RoliRoti in 2002. Growing up in his family’s award-winning butcher shop in Switzerland, Thomas brought his expertise as a third-generation butcher to the states and studied marketing and English at UC Berkeley. Tasked with creating a business plan for a non-existent company, Thomas unknowingly created what we now know as RoliRoti.


All of RoliRoti’s chickens are free range, raised without antibiotics, and non-GMO. They are never fed animal by-products. They are raised in open houses with equal space available outside to roam.  Most of RoliRolti’s chickens are roasted within two days of slaughter. They are spiced and then spit-roasted at low heat for about 90 minutes on rotisseries in specially built trucks. All other meats are from Heritage Foods USA and Heritage Acre, a company that supplies pasture-raised, antibiotic-free meats. 


Fun Fact

Thomas is the son of a Metzgermeister (Swiss for “master butcher”).
