Shawarma & Co was founded in June 2014 by two passionate, food-loving entrepreneurs. Together they are a formidable force thanks to their extensive experience in the corporate world (and innate ability to sniff out the best produce for the company), and they’re happy to be able to share their passion for great food with others.
Walid, our 43-year-old CEO and MD, holds a Masters in management. He has worked in corporate and private banking for 10 years, and is the former CEO of an industrial group in Lagos and Nigeria. He is now fully dedicated to Shawarma & Co.
Michel is Shawarma & Co’s Managing Partner. The 30- year-old worked at multinational professional services company PricewaterhouseCoopers for three years, and has been a member of the Shawarma & Co family since day one.
Together, Walid and Michel manage the company’s strategy and development – they also have the fun job of tasting every new dish that is added to our menu!
Having served the local community for several years, we know that maintaining the highest standards in quality and hygiene is of utmost importance. Our branches have been carefully designed and equipped with storage and preparation facilities, so that we can bring our shawarmas directly to you! We offer our unique catering services to private events. Our team is happy to provide customized dishes for any event and will be on-hand to ensure that every menu item satisfies guest dietary requirements and preferences. We also provide a live cooking station that offers an even better experience and taste.
