Holy Falafel has been in the business of providing fresh, flavourful, healthy high quality fast-casual food for more than 40 yrs. Our unique style of attentive service and cooking custom made-to-order food on-the-go with fire-grilled rotisseries was a first in Western Canada. We are now one of the most popular, modern, and successful growing healthy-choice, fit-life-style brands in Canada. Holy Falafel restaurants are experiencing explosive growth, high sales productivity, excellent return on investment, and are available in a mall, food truck, and street front design. We are highly focused and committed to disrupting the same old boring fast-food landscape here in Canada. We believe in social and corporate responsibility, and in changing our communities for the better, one falafel at a time. Dream Bigger.

Holy Falafel is what Healthy Fresh Fast-Casual is all About

We prepare hot, fast and delicious flavourful exotic food in a traditional yet modern Lebanese-fusion style, locking in the goodness of the freshest REAL ingredients. Our gas infra-red fire-grill rotisseries sear the ingredients, and seal in the moisture and flavour while creating a melt in your mouth crispy exterior.
Our chefs prepare everything fresh from scratch with only the finest local real ingredients. We do not use any preservatives, chemicals, or MSG. We offer low sodium, low sugar, low fat, gluten free, no cholesterol, menu options, and we are family and kid-friendly! Our healthy innovative industry leading menu is also 75% vegetarian and vegan, and HALAL is an available option for our stores depending on location demographics.

We’re Famous For Our Black Shawarma™ and Fast Falafels

Holy Falafel’s signature fire-grilled Black Shawarma™ Chicken is created from a very special and unique time-tested recipe that goes back many 1000s of years. This delicious tender meat is marinated fresh daily in each restaurant, and then grilled to order and served on a variety of our menu options. We’ve also mastered the fine art of the falafel, and our namesake Fast Falafels™ are second to none.
