The story of KOCAGOZ is the ultimate tale of overcoming odds through hard work and the dedicated pursuit of one’s passion.
That story begins with our founder, Omer Kocagoz. Born and raised in Turkey, he was struck with tragedy at the age of six when he lost his father. Despite the devastation, he was a hard worker, and at age twelve he landed himself a job as a chef in a hotel. Around this time, Omer’s mother asked him to join her in Australia. Finally, at seventeen, Omer was able to move to Australia to be with his mother. But once he arrived, his family refused him any financial support preventing him from receiving a formal education. Despite these setbacks, he was still able to learn English by working jobs around Sydney. His relentless work ethic, culinary skills, and boundless enthusiasm for Turkish street food would fuel his fiery ambition to form a few businesses over the years. His last formed business Rydalmere Kebabs is still running since 1999.
In 2014, Omer together with his four sons Huseyin, Muhammed, Cuneyd, and Selim, launched the KOCAGOZ brand with the intention of introducing flavourful Turkish street food to Sydney.
Kocagoz isn’t just our business. It’s our family, our culture and our way of life. Cooking is our passion, and we want to let our customers experience a little bit of what we know and love!
