The Hummus & Pita Co., one of the country’s fastest growing Mediterranean fast casuals, will open doors at its first Colorado location on Monday, January 7. The new site is located in Denver (825 16th Street) on the 16th Street Mall, joining three New York City stores and franchised stores in Brookfield, Connecticut, and Holmdel, New Jersey.
“Denver is the perfect city for the first The Hummus & Pita Co. location on the West Coast, and we are confident diners will love our fresh, authentic Mediterranean flavors,” says Colorado franchisee Rachid Elmrini. “This will be the first of five planned locations in Denver to offer made from scratch, delicious cuisine the whole family can enjoy.”
The fresh and healthy Mediterranean concept has been delivering guilt-free, homemade cuisine to the masses since 2011. All menu items are made from scratch on the premises at each location, using only the freshest ingredients available to ensure high-quality, flavor-focused eats for every guest. The Hummus & Pita Co. stands out from other Mediterranean concepts for its freshly-baked pita and laffa breads, wide variety of vegetarian dishes, meats cooked in a traditional taboon oven, and its signature hummus-based dessert offerings like the Hummus Shake and Hummus Ice Cream.
The Hummus & Pita Co.’s high sales volume, coupled with high consumer demand, proves the brand is well-poised for its planned national expansion, including multiple units in development in Detroit, MI; the first of which is slated to open in Q1 of 2019, and multiple units in Los Angeles, CA, planned for 2019. Due to the brand’s rapid franchised growth and expansion into new markets, The Hummus & Pita Co. was named one of QSR’s “13 Emerging New York City Fast Casuals to Watch” and “11 Restaurant Franchises on the Cusp of Greatness.”
The Hummus & Pita Co. is 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 their exclusive franchise development partner to grow the brand. They are currently looking for experienced multi-unit foodservice operators to develop franchise territories in major markets.
