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. The food truck is internationally known for its popular porchetta sanwiches and rotisserie chicken.


RoliRoti sources directly from Mary’s Free-Range Chicken, where chickens are fed a non-GMO, verified vegetarian diet. Most of RoliRolti’s chickens are spit-roasted within two days of slaughter. 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 Metzger-meister (Swiss for “master butcher”).
