ON TREND FOOD FRANCHISE
SPITZ is a fast-casual franchise featuring made from scratch Mediterranean Street Food with California creativity. A fresh approach to European fusion, SPITZ takes the best of Berlin, Madrid, and London street food and combines it with a cool and colorful California vibe. Patrons can immerse themselves in the vibrantly artistic bars with craft beer, housemade sangria and creative cocktails while they hang out with friends and enjoy living in the moment.
The one of a kind SPITZ menu of döner kebabs, falafel, salads, bowls and award-winning fries has taken foodie-focused cities like Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Portland Oregon by storm. Guests can choose a vegetarian/vegan option or vertically broiled proteins, including the classic mixed meat, falafel, chicken, beef or lamb. Specialties include loaded Street Cart Fries and D¨øquitos – taquitos made with fried lavash bread. Additional sides include criss-cut sweet potato fries, hummus, Greek salad, quinoa salad as well as crispy garbanzos and olives.
For health-conscious diners, SPITZ offers a lighter version of döner kebabs than the ones found on the street corners in Europe. The menu also lists Doner Salads along with paleo-friendly Garden Bowls, which feature tons of fresh vegetables along with garbanzo beans, hummus and a choice of protein.
Market focus & Trends
Although the SPITZ concept was engineered to appeal to consumers of all ages, where the menu and decor are most relevant is to the Millennial and Gen Zs. To understand why this is so important, you only need to examine those generation’s pursuits and purchasing power. YPulse, the world leader in youth consumer insight, claims that in 2020 Millennials and Gen Z teens have the incredible spending power of nearly $3 Trillion. YPulse also reports that the 73 million U.S. Millennials spend as much as 71% of their monthly expenditures on dining out and take out purchases. Also important to our brand and menu engineering is Nielsen’s 2017 study which found that Millennials purchase foods that harbor a strong social purpose and include multicultural ﬂavors.
