Achim Otto Reus, founder of "KEBA Spitfire Grill" was born in 1959 in Hanau, Germany. By the time he was twelve, he knew that he wanted to be a professional musician. He attended the Schools of Music and Art in Frankfurt and Cologne, played with the Opera Orchestra in Frankfurt, was named principal French horn player of the prestigious Radio Symphony Orchestra of Stuttgart and member of the German Brass, and has substituted in other symphony orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic. During his career as a musician he played on more than 50 CD recordings and traveled the world extensively. While playing with the Stuttgart Philharmonic in 1994, Achim met his future wife Angela, principal flutist and American citizen. The couple decided to move to the United States while visiting a friend in Athens, GA in August 1999. In preparation for their journey, Achim started planning thoughts of opening a Kebap restaurant because he missed his favorite sandwich during his travels to the US and had never found Kebap in America.
