New York City’s Mamoun’s Falafel To Open First Franchise Location

by Katie Lee

New York City — Mamoun’s Falafel, the fastest growing Middle-Eastern fast-casual restaurant in North America and oldest falafel restaurant in New York City, plans to open its newest location in Dallas this fall. The new location — also the company’s first franchise location — will be situated in West Village, a vibrant shopping, dining, residential and entertainment district in Dallas.  

Since opening in Greenwich Village in 1971, Mamoun’s Falafel has been dishing out a menu of authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine. It 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 that brings people together.  

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 its 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 Restaurant is a New York City institution and one of the oldest falafel restaurants in New York. Founded in 1971, the family run business currently operates six locations in New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. For more information, visit
