In 1949, Arsen Heybelian opened a nameless spot measuring 15 square meters in the city of Bourj Hammoud. When the street along which the snack joint stood was dubbed “Arax,” Heybelian followed suit and adopted the same name.

Today, Falafel Arax has become a mainstay in Lebanese fast food dining, serving delicious light-brown hued falafel balls alongside an extensive menu of specialty Armenian sandwiches, sausages, basterma, submarines, shawarma, and more. Arax features outlets across Lebanon, Jordan, Canada, and the USA.
