The Hummus & Pita Co signs Los Angeles deal
New York's The Hummus & Pita Co. has signed a deal with Dan Markel, a Southern California multi-concept operator, to open five units in Los Angeles. Three stores should be open by the end of the year, according to a company press release, with the following two stores slated to open in 2019.
"As someone who has an extensive experience opening franchised restaurants, I can confidently say that The Hummus & Pita Co.'s operational and franchisee support is some of the best I've ever seen in my career," said Markel, whose Jersey Mike's unit is one of the chain's top-performing stores in the country. "Excellent business practices aside, I fully expect The Hummus & Pita Co.'s healthy cuisine and innovative brand to resonate with Los Angeles, and I look forward to growing the concept throughout all of Southern California."
The Hummus & Pita Co. operates three stores in New York City and will open this year in Colorado, Connecticut, New Jersey and Michigan, according to the release.
