Who we are

Founded in 2017, Halal Shack has quickly become a fast-casual staple within colleges and universities. The menu is inspired by the street foods of New York City and has pioneered American halal food with roots in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. In addition to the halal-only menu, the brand offers a variety of locally sourced ingredients, health-conscious, plant-based and vegetarian options. Customers will be able to add Impossible meat to any Halal Shack menu item, including wraps, salads and gyros.

With locations that include college campuses, airports and nontraditional retail spaces, The Halal Shack serves its items with a side of convenience.
