Famous NYC Food Cart Slated To Open Brick-And-Mortar Location on September 2
The wait is finally over for residents of Springfield and the neighboring communities as The Halal Guys, a New York City institution, announces the grand opening festivities for their new Northern Virginia location. On Friday, September 2, at 11am, a brick-and-mortar storefront of the popular food cart will open their doors at the Springfield Tower Shopping Center (6304 Springfield Plaza.) The first 100 guests in line will receive a free entree platter of their choice and the first 1000 guests in line will have their choice of The Halal Guys t-shirt, sunglasses or commemorative cup.
“The Halal Guys was ‘love at first bite’ for us,” said Operating Franchisee. “We are looking forward to bringing THG gyro sandwiches, chicken-and-rice platters and famous white sauce to the NoVA community and anticipate the grand opening being a huge success.”
The fast casual concept, known for its never-ending lines and a simple menu of various Middle Eastern dishes, has already been well received in Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Northern and Southern California. They pride themselves on only using high-quality products like their chicken, which has never been frozen and is marinated and seasoned overnight, then cooked and chopped on the grill and served directly to their plate to ensure a crave worthy meal that’s piping hot. The Halal Guys’ mission is to ensure that every customer leaves happy, with a smile on their face and a satisfaction that brings them back again.
The Halal Guys grew from its humble beginnings as a food cart on the streets of New York City to a global icon known as the largest American halal street food concept in the world. This Manhattan-based landmark was created by three like-minded men from Egypt who came to America in search of a lucrative life. When Mohamed Abouelenein, Ahmed Elsaka and Abdelbaset Elsayed noticed that many cab drivers in New York were looking for a place to buy meals in Manhattan, they created their first food cart and quickly grew into a leading tourist and native New Yorker destination for American Halal fare. In 2013, The Halal Guys were ranked the most popular food truck reviewed on FourSquare and the third most Yelped restaurant in the United States in 2014.
The Halal Guys aim to be different and encourage patrons across America to ditch burgers for something unique. Among being awarded the 2014 Multicultural Award at The 5th American Muslim Consumer Conference, The Halal Guys have also been recognized by TIME Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, The New York Times and The Huffington Post.
