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. Its website can be found at

[May 28, 2017 update: A new article from Eater Boston indicates that The Halal Guys appear to be one step closer to debuting in the local area, as they now have an Instagram page for Boston and say that they will be coming soon to the region.]
