Shawarma Press, the #1 Mediterranean cuisine
quick service Shawarma franchise, is celebrating National Shawarma Day on October
15 by rolling out a new mobile app instant reward. Shawarma Press co-founders
Sawsan Abublan and Dr. Ehap Sabri announced that customers who download the app
on platforms such as Google Play or the App Store will receive an offer for a free wrap
that can be redeemed by ordering on the App and picking up at any of the franchise’s
six locations throughout Texas, including Arlington, Plano, San Antonio, Georgetown,
Frisco, and the company’s flagship headquarters in Irving.
“We are excited to be the first Mediterranean Shawarma franchise in the U.S. to offer an
app to our loyal customers,” said Abublan. “When ordering and purchasing through the
app, customers will earn rewards toward future purchases, including, for first time app
users, an instant reward for any of our wraps on the menu.”
Shawarma refers to the Middle Eastern tradition of preparing wraps with thin slices of
all-natural chicken or premium beef stacked in cone-like shapes, then slowly roasted in
juices on an upright rotisserie. Abublan noted that customer favorites include traditional
Beef, Chicken, and Falafel Shawarma and original “fusion” offerings such as the spicy
Tandoori Press™ and Tex-Mex Press™ Shawarmas.
National Shawarma Day celebrates the popular street food which has origins traced to
Turkey as early as the 18th Century. Now gaining popularity worldwide, sales in the
U.S. spiked when characters in a popular superheroes movie said they were hungry to
try shawarmas after saving the world.
In addition to delicious wraps, Shawarma Press is known for its authentic Mediterranean
food and healthy menu offerings. The quick service restaurants feature innovative
Mediterranean dishes, including made-from-scratch hummus and falafel, and fresh
soups, salads, and pastries. The menu reflects the brand’s commitment to the
Mediterranean Diet, consistently ranked as the healthiest diet in the world.
“We offer nourishing, heart-healthy selections our guests can feel good about,” said
Abublan. “Our wraps are made with all-natural chicken and premium beef. We also

have a nutrition calculator available on our website to assist guests who are following
specific or restricted diets.”
Founded in 2017, Shawarma Press is attracting customers with scrumptious menu
items and high-traffic locations such as inside Walmart stores. With steady expansion
throughout Texas, Dr. Ehap Sabri said there are several stores in Kansas, Georgia, and
Florida currently in development.
“Interest in our franchise is at an all-time high, so our overall plan is to open
approximately 100 restaurants at stand-alone locations and inside Walmart stores
during the next five years,” Sabri said.
