Only two short years ago, The Halal Guys opened its first franchise location, and first ever restaurant outside of New York City, here in Chicago on West Division Street. It now has more than 350 restaurants in development worldwide. This immense growth landed The Halal Guys as #1 fastest growing restaurant concept on this year’s Restaurant Business Future 50 list.
The Halal Guys is a fast-casual Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant that started as a food cart in Manhattan and has since become recognized internationally for pioneering American halal food. Their Chicago location on West Division Street is celebrating its second anniversary on August 22 and all day long, the restaurant will have a prize wheel that rewards members can spin to win free platters, sandwiches, sides, beverages and more.
