The Halal Guys

About The Halal Guys

The world famous The Halal Guys has created major global buzz with media and fans alike after announcing franchise deals for 225 new units in their first year of franchising! The concept originated with a humble food cart in Manhattan in 1990, and quickly grew into a leading tourist and native New Yorker destination for mouth-watering American Halal fare, including their signature chicken, gyro and falafel platters over rice and their world-famous white sauce. This original food cart is known as NYC's never-ending line! Due to overwhelming consumer demand and constant requests from fans, The Halal Guys is now franchising worldwide.

Franchisees must have clear access to at least $1M for the minimum 5-unit franchises, which includes: $500k or more that is immediately liquid and ready to invest, at least $800k+ in cash plus access to debt (line of credit or letter from lender that they are pre-qualified). This ensures you have adequate capital to buy territory and open first two stores.
