This NYC-Based Mediterranean Eatery Will Open Its First Ohio Location This Weekend

There’s a new hummus spot in town.

The Hummus & Pita Co. will open the doors of its flagship Ohio location on Saturday. Grand Opening festivities will kick off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 7 at the restaurant, which is located at 1777 Hilliard Rome Rd. Pranay Patel and Ashish Patel are leading the charge for The Hummus & Pita Co.’s arrival.

The first 50 guests in line at the opening will score a free falafel pita and free samples of The Hummus & Pita Co.’s favorite menu items will be served throughout the day. There will also be a chance to meet Paulie the Pita, the cutest mascot ever, enjoy music from WNCI 97.9, or to enter to win raffle prizes.

“We are thrilled to be part of The Hummus & Pita Co. family and to be bringing the quality Mediterranean cuisine to Ohio. We chose Columbus for our flagship location because of the incredible diversity in the area and the interest locals have here for new concepts and types of cuisine. Columbus was lacking Mediterranean food concepts that offer the incredible variety that The Hummus & Pita Co. has to offer,” said Patel. “We’re grateful for a partner like The Hummus & Pita Co. that we can grow alongside.”

The Hummus & Pita Co. was launched in Brooklyn in 2012. All of the menu items are made from scratch at each location, ushing yummy fresh ingredients. The freshly-baked pita and laffa breads are out of this world and there are tons of vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, including vegan Morrocan Meatballs and Shawarma.

“Bringing The Hummus & Pita Co. to another new state is monumental for us, and we have full faith that Pranay will be a valuable asset as we continue to grow our brand together,” said Dave Pesso, co-founder of The Hummus & Pita Co. “Columbus is such an exciting and dynamic area to kick off our Ohio expansion plans, and we can’t wait to see the community’s reaction to our menu of scratch-made items made with fresh ingredients.”

The Columbus location will be open Monday – Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday – 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for dine-in, curbside, takeout, and delivery.
