US-based fast-casual Mediterranean cuisine franchise Shawarma Press has expanded its presence in the US by opening a flagship restaurant in Georgia.

Located at 11035 Medlock Bridge Road in the Atlanta suburb of Johns Creek, the new restaurant will be open for customers seven days a week, between 11am and 9pm.

Customers can opt for both dine-in and takeout options.

The menu features Shawarma wraps made from chicken or beef and other wraps such as the spicy Tandoori Press Shawarma and the Tex-Mex Press Shawarma.

Other items offered at the restaurant include falafels, hummus, soup, salad, protein bowls and baked pastries.

Shawarma Press in John Creeks is owned and operated by Sabri Sabri. He opened this restaurant with his daughter Shahed, the general manager of the new location and a graduate of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts in Jordan.

The new restaurant in Georgia is the first of several Shawarma Press franchise units planned for the state.

According to Shawarma Press CEO and co-founder Sawsan Abublan, this opening in Georgia is significant as it is the first of several other US states chosen for Shawarma Press restaurants in 2024.

Abublan said: “Currently, we are planning two more locations in Georgi, as well as another franchise unit in Kansas.

“In addition, there are multi-unit deals we expect to materialise at the Multi-Unit Franchise Conference in March 2024.

“But now we are excited about introducing authentic Shawarma and Mediterranean flavours to Georgia, as the Johns Creek area has a diverse customer base with sophisticated palates.”

Shawarma Press already has seven restaurants across Texas, in Georgetown, Arlington, Irving, San Antonio, Plano and Frisco, as well as a recent flagship opening in the Dallas Arts District.
