VIDEO INTERVIEW: King of Kings Gyros in Wilkes-Barre on National Gyro Day and small business ownership
Before recording the latest episode of the NEPA Scene Podcast at Coal Creative’s studio in Wilkes-Barre, we sat down for a little bonus interview with Eric Negron, owner of King of Kings Gyros on Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre because, honestly, how often do we get to talk to royalty?
Gearing up for National Gyro Day on Saturday, Sept. 1, we talk about what makes a good gyro and why they’re the king of kings, the proper pronunciation of the Greek dish, the challenges of running and maintaining a small business, the Northeastern Pennsylvania community and people’s perception of the city of Wilkes-Barre, their biggest customers, other menu offerings, the family business and Eric’s connection to the Cheesesteak Factory right down the street, how to win free gyros on eatmoregyros.com, and more. It’s good to be the king!
King of Kings Gyros (37 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) is celebrating National Gyro Day with an online giveaway running now at eatmoreyros.com. Five winners will all receive five gyros each in honor of the restaurant’s fifth National Gyro Day. Raffle tickets are on sale on site ($1 for three and $5 for 20) to win even more gyros – the grand prize is five free gyros.
They’re also having a two-day sale on Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 from 10:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. It will be $6 for regular gyros, $7 for king size gyros, and $11 for a rice platter and gyro.
