It all started in 1990, when the founding partners opened a hot dog cart on West 53rd & 6th Avenue, New York, NY. They saw a huge demand among the Muslim cab drivers needing to have a halal Muslim meal. They quickly exchanged their cart and began servicing halal food, which became a huge success. They focused on the enhancement of their products to make it different and enjoyable. From that time, they pledged to use the best halal products to serve the public. During that time, they created their special magic white sauce and fiery hot sauce, which our public loves.
The second opening is on the southeast corner of W.53rd Street and 6th Avenue across from the main cart that is next to the Hilton hotel. The third opening was on the southwest corner of 7th avenue and W53rd Street. The fourth opening was at the LaGuardia Community College in front of the Thomas. The fifth opening was on the northeast corner of East 14th Street and 2nd Avenue. Our latest opening, is our first brick and mortar shop, The Halal Guys Store, which is also located on East 14th Street and 2nd avenues. Now The Halal Guys has steadily grown to become the leading and largest food cart company within the New York area.
Now the quick-service halal street cart company is going national, creating a chain that keeps the core values and provides opportunities to new partners who want to share The Halal Guys experience. The Halal Guys Inc. is a federal registered company that has a registered trademark, name, logo and slogan and is a privately held and family owned.
With 24 consecutive years of positive sales growth, The Halal Guys has set itself apart by pioneering innovations and creating delicious products—including the ever-popular White Sauce for customers.
