The Concept Known For ‘The Never-Ending Line’ Is Slated To Open in September
Pennsylvania will soon be getting their first taste of The Halal Guys. After 25 years in business, New York City’s most popular food cart will open a brick-and-mortar location just outside Philadelphia in King of Prussia. Famously known for its gyro sandwiches, chicken-and-rice platters and “secret” white sauce, The Halal Guys menu offers a mix of various American Halal food.
The NYC-based concept has signed a deal with Fransmart, who is known for building other popular concepts such as Five Guys, to secure franchised units across the U.S. The restaurant, known for its never-ending lines, has already been well received in Houston, Chicago, Northern and Southern California. The King of Prussia location is scheduled to open in the Valley Forge Shopping Center (150 W. Dekalb Pike, Suite 100) in September.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of The Halal Guys,” said Naveen Mohiuddin, Operating Franchisee. “King of Prussia is the ideal area to open and we are excited to bring the popular chicken-and-rice platters and The Halal Guys world famous white sauce to local residents and those in the neighboring Philadelphia area.”
The Halal Guys aim to be different and encourage patrons across America to break out of their culinary comfort zone and experience something unique. 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
