THE FOOD SEEN 100819: The Halal Guys

On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Ahmed Abouelenein, CEO of The Halal Guys, and son of one of the co-founder, ushers in a new era of their Egyptian American entrepreneurial success story. The Halal Guys started selling chicken, beef gyros and falafels from a single street cart at 53rd & 6th Ave; now their famous white sauce is on combo platters around the world! With over 1000 employees, they’re the second-highest grossing ethnic restaurant chain behind Chipotle, and the third most reviewed eatery on Yelp. All this because Muslim cab drivers in NYC were looking for a place to buy halal food in Manhattan.
