FastCasual.com – Irving, Texas-based Shawarma Press has opened its third Walmart location inside a Plano, Texas, store at 6001 N. Central Expressway, near the University of Texas at Dallas. Additional Walmart locations include San Antonio and Arlington, and others coming by year’s end in Georgetown near Austin, followed by Wichita Falls, Lufkin, and Temple, according to co-Founder Dr. Ehap Sabri, PhD, who is an adjunct professor at UTD’s School of Business,

“Since we opened our first restaurant in Irving in 2017, we have been excited to be the first to introduce authentic shawarma to Texas,” he said in a press release. “During the next five years, our expansion plan is to open more than 100 Shawarma Press locations inside Walmart stores throughout the country to provide healthy and authentic Mediterranean cuisine to the masses.”

In addition to its shawarma wraps, the menu includes a variety of appetizers such as grape leaf rolls, cheese and spinach pastries, French fries, falafel bites and homemade hummus. Fresh salads, soups, bowls and desserts such as premium baklava and ice cream are also available, along with vegan options and an interactive nutrition calculator for anyone concerned about allergens or adhering to a special diet. According to Sabri, who is also a marathon runner, the nutrition calculator includes a breakdown of all menu items on the company’s website and is a helpful tool for him and other athletes.

“The Mediterranean Diet has been named the healthiest way to eat in 2022 based on rankings from US News and World Report,” Shawarma Press CEO and co-Founder Sawsan Abublan said in the release. “We are proud to serve fresh, homemade menu items with only high-quality ingredients, including 100% natural chicken and premium beef raised with no hormones, steroids, or antibiotics, while preparing and humanely handling everything according to Halal guidelines.”

Shawarma Press is focused on expansion this year with 10 locations planned in Texas, Oklahoma and Florida
