August 2, 2022
Customers and local dignitaries welcome popular franchise to the Frisco community
Irving, Texas (RestaurantNews.com) Shawarma Press, the award-winning quick-service franchise committed to bringing healthy, authentic Mediterranean dishes to the masses, continued to dot the Texas landscape with the recent opening of its sixth location in Frisco. Enthusiastic patrons quickly welcomed the restaurant to the community by showing up hours before the grand opening and forming a line that snaked through the entire parking lot. Members of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries joined in the festivities that included free samples of delicious shawarma and discounts on wraps and exclusive menu items. Located at 6363 Dallas Parkway, Suite 107, the Frisco location is the sixth Shawarma Press to operate in all of Texas, including restaurants inside Walmart stores in Arlington, Plano, San Antonio and Georgetown, and the company’s headquarters in Irving.
“We are overwhelmed by the warm reception we are receiving from the Frisco community,” said Shawarma Press CEO and co-founder Sawsan Abublan. “Seeing so many eager customers show up on opening day and then return later with family and friends is truly a blessing. “We are passionate about bringing our concept of healthy Mediterranean food to the Frisco area.”
Open daily from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, the new location is the place to be for authentic and innovative Mediterranean food, including shawarma wraps made with all-natural chicken and premium beef, falafels and hummus made from scratch, and fresh soups, salads, bowls, and pastries. The menu, as well as an interactive nutritional calculator to help customers on restricted diets or concerned about allergies, reflects the brand’s commitment to health and recognition of the Mediterranean Diet, highlighted as the healthiest diet in the world.
“Customers are realizing that Shawarma Press is an alternative to quick service food that is sometimes loaded with empty calories and high in sugars, fats, preservatives and sodium,” said Abublan. “We are delighted to offer our guests delicious, nutritious and heart-healthy dishes that they feel good about.”
In addition to dining in the cheerful and colorful restaurant, takeout and delivery options are available, as well as catering for special occasions or events. Customer favorites include the incredibly addictive freshly made hummus, as well as wraps to please any palate, including Chicken Shawarma, the traditional Tandori Press™ and the original spicy Tex-Mex Press™.
Co-founded by Dallas entrepreneurs Sawsan Abublan and Dr. Ehap Sabri, the first Shawarma Press opened in Irving in 2017. Since then, the restaurants’ growing popularity has generated franchise inquiries across Texas and across the country. According to Ehap Sabri, PhD, who is also a supply chain expert and adjunct professor at the UTD School of Business, additional restaurants will open throughout Texas this year, followed by Wichita Falls, Lufkin and Temple. He said the expansion plan is to open more than 100 restaurants inside Walmart stores and stand-alone locations over the next five years.
In addition to rapid expansion, Shawarma Press is receiving recognition and praise from the restaurant franchise industry. The co-founders recently received the 2022 Innovation Award presented by Franchise Upgrade Media, which recognizes the country’s top franchisors who are creating the most successful strategies to build their brands. Shawarma Press received the award for the most innovative supply chain. Additionally, Sabri and Abublan were recently appointed to fastcasual.comThe Top 100 Movers & Shakers list, which recognizes the industry’s most successful fast casual restaurant brands based on criteria such as profitability, creativity, expansion and dedication to innovation, leadership and resilience.
