Mamoun’s Falafel has been dishing out authentic Middle Eastern cuisine, including their namesake falafel, shawarma, hummus, baba ganouj, and baklava since opening in New York City’s Greenwich Village in 1971. The concept was started by Mamoun Chater, who built the menu using authentic Syrian recipes and natural ingredients and spices. The legacy and tradition of the brand is carried on today by Mamoun’s four sons, who have continued to build up Mamoun’s reputation for being the most authentic and flavorful falafel in Manhattan, as well as expanding the concept to New Jersey, Connecticut, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, and Northern California.

The concept, which has been serving high quality Middle Eastern cuisine for more than 45 years, uses a commissary and rigorous production systems to ensure high quality and consistent product at every location. They have partnered with Cuisine Solutions, a worldwide leader in the sous-vide cooking method, to ensure the same delicious menu items can be duplicated all over the world.

The Dallas location will be open Sunday-Thursday from 11 A.M. to 11 P.M. and Friday-Saturday 11 A.M. to 3 A.M. This is the first Mamoun’s Falafel to open outside of the Northeast, joining the six existing locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, with deals signed for multiple units in each Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Northern California.

Mamoun’s Falafel is currently looking for franchisees to help introduce its menu to customers in major markets across the country. The concept has partnered with Fransmart, the industry leading franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, The Halal Guys, and Qdoba Mexican Grill, as their exclusive franchise development partner to grow the brand in major U.S. markets .
