Fast-paced growth continues for The Halal Guys, which topped last year’s Future 50 list. The Middle Eastern fast casual’s trajectory includes dozens of new units, a growing loyalty program and a delivery push via third-party partners. About 10% of traffic comes through delivery services, so the chain has reconfigured its units to accommodate pickup orders, added parking spaces for delivery drivers, and has revamped its bagging procedure to account for multiple off-premise orders.
