Shawarma Press continues to dot the Texas landscape with the recent opening of its sixth location in Frisco.
Members of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries joined in the festivities that included free samples of shawarma and discounts on wraps and signature menu items. Located at 6363 Dallas Parkway, Suite 107, the Frisco locale is the sixth Shawarma Press operating throughout Texas, including restaurants inside Walmart stores in Arlington, Plano, San Antonio and Georgetown, and the company’s flagship headquarters in Irving.
“We are overwhelmed by the warm reception we are receiving from the Frisco community,” said Shawarma Press CEO and co-founder Sawsan Abublan in a statement. “Seeing so many eager customers show up on opening day, and then returning later with family and friends, is truly a blessing. “We are passionate about bringing our concept of healthy Mediterranean food to the Frisco area.”
Open daily from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., the new location serves Mediterranean fare, including shawarma wraps made with all-natural chicken and beef, made-from-scratch falafels and hummus, and fresh soups, salads, bowls, and pastries.
“Customers are realizing that Shawarma Press is an alternative to quick service food that is sometimes loaded with empty calories and high in sugars, fat, preservatives, and sodium,” said Abublan. “We are thrilled to offer our guests delicious, nourishing, heart-healthy dishes they can feel good about.”
Co-founded by Dallas entrepreneurs Sawsan Abublan and Dr. Ehap Sabri, the first Shawarma Press opened its doors in Irving in 2017. According to Ehap Sabri, PhD, who is also a supply chain expert and an adjunct professor at UTD’s School of Business, additional restaurants will be opening throughout Texas this year, followed by Wichita Falls, Lufkin, and Temple. He said the expansion plan is to open more than 100 restaurants inside Walmart stores and stand-alone locations during the next five years.
