Health-Focused and Sustainability Benefits
One of the biggest appeals of a Mediterranean restaurant franchise is that many staples (such as flatbreads, roasted meat, and hummus) offer a healthier fare, without sacrificing flavor.
This type of cuisine has experienced a major growth in popularity the last several years, largely due to the cuisine’s purported health benefits, which are said to stem from a focus on plant-based foods, ethically sourced meat, and authentic ingredients and spices.
Because of the halal franchise focus on vegetables, proteins, and whole grains as well as accentuating dishes with flavorful spices and fresh vegetables, these cuisines are said to be some of the healthiest in the world
At Shawarma Press, our meat is ethically sourced and our dishes are free from unnecessary preservatives. The animals used for our proteins are fed vegetarian diets and are not treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.
Research has shown that grass-fed meat typically has higher concentrations of antioxidants, vitamins, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3 fats, and lower concentrations of saturated fat overall. No artificial preservatives are used in preparing our dishes either.
This is important to many consumers who are worried about the excess use of hormones and other artificial additives in their food.
