Mediterranean fast-casual concept SAJJ Mediterranean partnered with Local Kitchens, a digital food hall concept, to launch its first SAJJ Kitchen in Cupertino, Calif. The location will provide pickup and delivery services only, within an 8-mile radius of the storefront. Customers will be able to order directly from the SAJJ website and app, third party delivery services and at an in-store kiosk.
“As digital ordering has become more popular than ever, we wanted to find new ways to meet the needs of SAJJ’s new and existing customers,” says Zaid Ayoub, founder and CEO of SAJJ Mediterranean.
Local Kitchens’ Cupertino site features a storefront and a dedicated takeout customer experience with staff trained by restaurant partners to prepare each meal on-site. This digital food hall concept allows customers to mix and match cuisines from different restaurants, like SAJJ Kitchen, in a single order.
The SAJJ Kitchen features a slightly condensed SAJJ menu, but with many of the brand’s favorites. Guests can customize their own signature wrap, pita sandwich, grain bowl or salad, or they can choose from SAJJ’s pre-designed menu items. Protein choices include chicken and steak shawarma, pomegranate chicken, shawafel (half falafel and half shawarma) or SAJJ’s falafel.
SAJJ Mediterranean operates 12 restaurants, food trucks, a catering service, and an e-commerce SAJJ Market.
