Shawarma Press, the rapidly expanding quick-service Mediterranean franchise owned by Dallas-based entrepreneurs Sawsan Abublan and Dr. Ehap Sabri, announced the opening of its newest restaurant in Georgetown.
Located at 620 S. I-35 Suite 400 inside Walmart, Georgetown is one of five Shawarma Press locations currently operating throughout Texas, including restaurants inside Walmart stores in Arlington, Plano, and San Antonio, and the stand-alone flagship headquarters in Irving.
“We’re very excited to bring this new concept of healthy Mediterranean food to the Georgetown area,” Abublan said. “The feedback from this community is that they are eager to try new things, so we are thrilled to introduce them to our delicious, heart-healthy wraps, salads, hummus, falafel, and other favorites.”
Since opening the first Shawarma Press in 2017, the restaurant’s success resulted in franchise inquiries throughout Texas and nationwide. According to co-founder Dr Ehap Sabri, PhD, who is also a supply chain expert and an adjunct professor at UTD’s School of Business, additional locations will be opening in Frisco, Houston, and other cities throughout Texas this year, followed by Wichita Falls, Lufkin, and Temple.
“During the next five years, our expansion plan is to open more than 100 Shawarma Press locations inside Walmart stores as well as stand-alone locations throughout the country to provide healthy and authentic Mediterranean cuisine to the masses,” Sabri said. “We are humbled that our concept of offering authentic Mediterranean food as a healthier alternative in the quick-service industry is resonating with so many new and loyal customers.” For more info www.shawarmapress.com
