The fast-growing, beloved Middle-Eastern fast casual concept opens in Atlanta, its first location in the South

New York City's Iconic Mamoun's Falafel Arrives in AtlantaMamoun’s Falafel, the fastest growing Middle Eastern fast-casual restaurant in North America and oldest falafel restaurant in New York City, will open its first Atlanta location at 1269 Northside Dr. on Saturday, February 1, 2020. Located in the West Midtown Center, it is the first of six Mamoun’s Falafel franchise locations coming to the area.

Franchisees Kalki and Parimal Patel are already scouting Alpharetta and Buckhead for their next two locations. The Patels held a widely-attended and well-received soft opening on Saturday, January 25.  The local media have been reporting rave reviews and excitement building in the city.

“We’re so happy to bring New York’s best falafels to Atlanta,” said Kalki Patel. “Mamoun’s serves authentic Middle Eastern food, and that’s something we’ve been missing here. The support team from Mamoun’s Falafel has given us all the tools we need to succeed, and the training and commissary-based proprietary menu are invaluable to us. I am looking forward to a bright future as a Mamoun’s Falafel franchisee.”

“The Patels are hard-working and committed, and I have every confidence in them,” says Hussam Chater, CEO of Mamoun’s Falafel. “Atlanta is one of the busiest markets in the U.S., with 275,000 travelers arriving daily at the largest airport in North America. Even better – it’s known for its southern hospitality as one of the country’s friendliest cities.”

Mamoun’s Falafel is on target to expand beyond 1,000 units within the next few years, as interest in New York City’s oldest and favorite falafel brand increases daily. The brand is iconic, having grown from a single 200-square-foot store opened by Syrian immigrant Mamoun Chater in 1971. Today, the company is run by Mamoun’s four sons and has grown beyond their father’s dreams of a small family restaurant. Franchising has allowed Mamoun’s Falafel to expand across the US rapidly.

Mamoun’s Falafel is actively seeking experienced multi-unit foodservice operators in Georgia and other potential markets across North America. To learn more about Mamoun’s Falafel franchising opportunities, please visit:
