D.C.’s streets are lined with fast casual restaurants where customers can purchase a quick lunch for ten dollars or less. Many of those spots use sustainable, locally grown ingredients, but the newly-opened Falafel, Inc. says it takes the mission-driven business model even further. In addition to hiring refugees, the restaurant plans to donate a days’ worth of food for every ten dollars in sales, all while serving a product common at refugee camps: falafel. We explore where social entrepreneurship is meeting the local restaurant industry with the owner of Falafel, Inc.
