The Halal Guys to open second London site in Earl's Court

The Halal Guys will open its second UK site in Earl's Court in July.

The 48-cover site follows the group's first London opening in Irving Street, off Leicester Square, in March.

Franchisee ITICO F+B has the development rights across the UK with plans to open 20 locations in the next five years.

The Halal Guys started life in 1990 in New York City when Egyptian immigrants Mohammed Abouelenein, Ahmed Elsaka and Abedelbaset Elsayed opened a hot dog cart there.

After recognising the huge demand from Muslim cab drivers looking for a good, fast halal meal they swapped the hot dogs for halal food.

The business opened its first franchise site in Chicago in 2015 and now has more than 80 restaurants in the US and more than 100 sites worldwide.
