Hexagon Hospitality Takes a Bite of The Hummus & Pita Co.

Hexagon Hospitality founders Mitch Kahn and Wade Vandegrift announced a partnership with The Hummus & Pita Co. on their new Union Square location opening on May 8. Hexagon Hospitality will also be a capital partner as it pursues opportunities both in and out of New York in the coming years for 10 new locations of the Mediterranean fast-casual brand on the rise. The Hummus & Pita Co. and Hexagon Hospitality are currently negotiating leases for new locations in Midtown in addition to exploring opportunities in South Florida and the Boston area.

"The Hummus & Pita Co. is an extremely well-executed concept.
