The Halal Guys Sign Franchisee For Chicago/Wisconsin

New Multi-Unit Franchisee Will Open First Unit In Milwaukee

March 09, 2016 // Franchising.com // New York, NY - The Halal Guys, the first mainstream American Halal food restaurant chain, has announced the signing of a new franchise deal for territories including Chicago, IL; Milwaukee, WI; and Madison, WI.

The new franchisee, Dustin LeFebvre, worked with Fransmart CEO, Dan Rowe, and Franchise Sales Coordinator, Allison Lisiecki, on securing a multi-unit deal in which they have committed to opening at least 3 more units in Chicagoland, 2 units in Milwaukee and 1 unit in Madison, Wisconsin.

The first unit is set to open early Summer 2016 on the East side of Milwaukee, a block off of the UW campus at 3133 N. Oakland Ave.  LeFebvre is seeking out real estate in Madison, where he hopes to sign a lease for the second location later in 2016.

“I am excited to share The Halal Guys’ 25 years of street vendor passion with the people of Chicago and Wisconsin,” said LeFebvre in a statement. “The Halal Guys represents a confluence of global tastes and timeless comfort food with the special brand built dutifully through dedication, craft and the amplification of taxi drivers all across Manhattan”.

Since partnering with Fransmart and announcing the launch of a franchise program in 2014, The Halal Guys has opened two corporate brick-and-mortar restaurants in Manhattan, and 6 franchised locations in the cities of Chicago, Houston, Manila, Long Beach and Costa Mesa. They also have over 300 franchise units in development in territories including Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the entire state of California, which sold out within the first two months of franchising, as well as international locations for the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea and Canada.
