The Halal Guys to Expand to the Boston Area
A legendary group of restaurants and carts based in New York City is planning a major expansion, and the Boston area is included in its plans.
Eater Boston is reporting that The Halal Guys announced a deal that will bring six locations to Boston along with a total of more than 200 others in the United States and beyond. The article says that the franchise consulting firm Fransmart--which also works with the expansions of Five Guys and Qdoba--will be bringing shops to Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Atlanta as well.
The Halal Guys, which first started out in 1990 as a food cart, offers such items as chicken platters with rice, falafel sandwiches, hummus, and baklava; they currently have three carts and two restaurants in Manhattan, along with a cart in Long Island City and restaurants in Chicago and Costa Mesa, CA.
