Since opening its first Arizona location this past January, The Halal Guys has created a strong brand presence and local following in Tempe and the Arizona State University campus. The concept has plans for rapid growth throughout Arizona, with four more locations projected to open in the next six months.
“I brought The Halal Guys to Arizona because it’s where I started my new life in the United States after immigrating from Abu Dhabi. We’ve experienced a very positive response after opening in Tempe near my alma mater, Arizona State University and I am excited to continue this momentum and becoming a staple in each community,” said operating franchisee, AJ Ahmad.
The Halal Guys aim to be different and encourage patrons across America to try something new and higher quality fast-casual restaurants. 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 better life. When the founders noticed 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 with more than 7,600 reviews and a 4.5 average star rating.
