The Hummus & Pita Co., known for its homemade, fresh and healthy Mediterranean cuisine, has announced the sale of a five-unit franchise expansion into the Denver market. The company signed the franchise deal with Rachid Elmrini, an experienced full-service restaurant operator and commercial real estate investor.
Founder and President Janice Axelrod opened the first Hummus & Pita Co. in 2011 in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. Since then, the restaurant has opened three additional New York locations and is now set for expansion into the Denver market. Impressive unit economics (averaging at $1,200 in sales per square foot) coupled with high consumer demand proves the concept is well-poised to make its foray into additional markets.
