The Hummus & Pita Co. Begins National Expansion With First Franchised Opening

by Katie Lee

Brookfield, Conn. — The Hummus & Pita Co., one of the country’s leading and fastest growing Mediterranean fast-casuals, will mark the official start of national expansion with the opening of its first franchised store in Brookfield, Conn., on August 11, 2018. The brand’s newest outpost is part of a franchise deal inked earlier this year. This marks the first of five grand openings in five new markets.

“Since first finalizing our franchise deal with The Hummus & Pita Co., we have anxiously been waiting for this day,” says Saiyam Shah, franchisee of the Brookfield location. “It fills my heart with immense joy to see my dream of opening one of New York City’s best Mediterranean fast-casual concepts come to fruition.”

The fresh and healthy Mediterranean concept was founded in 2011. All menu items are made from scratch on the premises at each location.

The Hummus & Pita Co.’s three existing stores in New York City average impressive unit economics of well over $1,000 in sales per square foot. The high sales volume, coupled with high consumer demand, proves the brand is well poised for its planned national expansion, including units in development in Denver; Bellworks, N.J.; and Detroit; which are slated to open by year’s end, and multiple units in Los Angeles planned for 2019.

“We, as a family, are so excited to be able to spread our dream nationally with our first of five grand openings in five new markets in the next 4 months,” says Dave Pesso, co-founder of The Hummus & Pita Co.

The Hummus & Pita Co. is partnered with Fransmart as its exclusive franchise development partner to grow the brand.

The Hummus & Pita Co. is a New York City-based concept that currently operates four locations in New York City and Brookfield, Conn., with additional units in development in Denver, New Jersey, Detroit and Los Angeles. For more information, visit
