Mamoun’s Falafel, the fastest growing Middle-Eastern fast casual restaurant in North America and oldest falafel restaurant in New York City has announced that their newest location is slated to open in Dallas in fall. The new location will situated in Dallas’ most vibrant walkable shopping, dining, residential, and entertainment district, West Village, at 3839 McKinney Ave, Ste #145.

Since opening in the heart of Greenwich Village in 1971, Mamoun’s Falafel has been dishing out a menu of authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine, including shawarma, hummus, baba ganouj, and baklava along with their famous, namesake falafel.  Mamoun’s Falafel, which has established a reputation of being the most authentic and flavorful falafel in the city, was founded by Mamoun Chater who built the menu using authentic Syrian recipes of simple, natural ingredients and spices.  The legacy and tradition of the brand has been carried on by Mamoun’s four sons who, like him, are passionate about serving delicious food which brings people together.  

Mamoun’s Falafel has earned a reputation in New York City and beyond for its traditional Middle Eastern cuisine, long lines both day and night, and frequent celebrity sightings.  It was featured in the book “1,000 Places to See Before You Die," awarded ‘Best Falafel’ by the New York Press, included in EATER NYC’s list of “NYC’s Most Iconic Sandwiches,” and featured on the Food Network, in addition to being praised by various musicians, actors, comedians, and other celebrities throughout the years.

Mamoun’s Falafel recently 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 every major U.S. market. Dallas will be the first of many franchised Mamoun's Falafel restaurants to open in the United States.

“We’ve made it easy for franchisees to replicate the rich history and delicious recipes of our concept in any major market. We can’t wait to open our first franchise location in Dallas and we’re very excited about opening more in major markets across the country in the coming year,” says Mamoun’s Falafel CEO and co-owner Hussam Chater. 

Mamoun’s Falafel is currently looking for franchise partners to help introduce its menu to customers in major media markets across the country.  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.
