Our Story


More than three years ago on October 14, 2018, I launched my vision of Pita My Shawarma with our very first food truck. Being 1st generation Lebanese, I couldn't find an authentic shawarma that I enjoyed, so I decided to create my own from scratch. With a University of Pittsburgh bachelor's degree in business administration with a marketing major, I wasn't happy with the jobs I've had and wanted to go back into my passion of cooking. In high school, I vividly remember stacking shawarma on a mini rotisserie at my parent's house and trying out different toppings and sauces just as a hobby for cooking. I still have that mini rotisserie in my kitchen today. I would have never imagined making this more than my full time job & being blessed to do so.


With a handful of my grandma's favorite recipes and tweaks of my own, I knew I was ready to start my very first food business. After exploring the ideas of starting a food truck and a small restaurant, and working at both,I decided to build my own food truck from scratch.



With the help of a local food truck builder, I found and bought my empty USPS mail truck that I stripped down and hand built in my driveway to become the Pita My Shawarma food truck in a few months. I launched and ran my truck through my very first season, and enjoyed serving at breweries, coffee shops, special events, and so much more. I loved the direct communication with my customers and the relationships I developed with my regulars -- it was so rewarding when someone would drive across the city or across state lines just to have my shawarma.


A year and a half into my venture, I knew I was ready to expand into my very first fast casual restaurant, and was very fortunate enough to come across the Butler St location in Lawrenceville in which I begin to start the new journey of Pita My Shawarma 2.0.
