A new fast-food restaurant in Tysons Corner Center wants to help refugees.
Falafel Inc. opened for business at their new location on level one of the mall earlier this week, according to a staff member. Besides just serving an array of Mediterranian fare to customers, the company also provides jobs and food for refugees, according to its website.
“Falafel Inc. is the world’s first falafel quick-service food social enterprise,” according to the company’s website. Tysons Reporter has reached out to learn more about how the proceeds benefit refugees.
Menu items include falafels, hummus, various dips and fries, with prices ranging from $3 to $4.
The company has three spots in the D.C. area and six “coming soon” to Boston, Palo Alton and Los Angeles in California, Amman in Jordan, Dubai and Mexico City.
Falafel Inc. will celebrate its new Tysons spot with a ribbon-cutting on Saturday, Sept. 28.
