Celebrate Canada's National Shawarma Day on October 15 with Osmow'stm $5 Shawarmas

TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canada's most popular Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fast, fresh eatery, Osmow'stm is inviting Canadians to celebrate the second annual National Shawarma Day on October 15  in honour of the historic Middle Eastern street food. The second annual National Shawarma Day calls on carnivores and vegetarians alike to enjoy perfectly seasoned rotisserie-cooked chicken or crisp-fried falafels at one of 120 Osmow'stm locations across Canada at prices last seen in 2001, the year Osmow's launched.

For just $5, Osmow's is offering its legendary Chicken Shawarma wrap or ROCKStm at its original price, while vegetarians can take part in the day too with a Falafel Wrap or ROCKStm for the same price.

Shawarma is a tender, fragrant, boldly spiced and marinated meat that slowly cooks as it rotates on a vertical skewer. At Osmow'stm, Shawarma is prepared a little differently. Once the marinated meat is delicately carved, it's grilled to caramelized perfection and then served on ROCKS (rice), STIX (fries) or classically wrapped in a thin pita bread that's then expertly grilled. Personalized with add-ons like fresh herbs and grilled vegetables, feta or house-made sauces means there are endless combinations of Shawarma meals bursting with delicious flavours.

A fan-favourite for a reason, be sure to add regular or NEW light and vegan garlic sauce! Only adventurous eaters dare to add Osmow'stm Scorchin' Hot Sauce!

"Last year, National Shawarma Day was a huge success!" says Osmow'stm CEO & Head of Franchising Ben Osmow of the fast-growing Canadian QSR company. "We didn't simply measure impact by the impressive number of national social posts and line-ups at our locations across the country. We also knew last year's celebration was a hit because of rave reviews from both people who had never tried Shawarma before and Shawarma aficionados alike! Our National Shawarma Day made news across Canada and spread into the US. We are excited to build on this fun themed day."

"When my parents opened the first Osmow's in 2001 and started serving a dish they enjoyed since growing up in Egypt, no one could have imagined that we would be celebrating the official Canadian National Shawarma Day during our  company's 20th anniversary year," says Osmow'stm President & CMO Bernadette Farag. 

"The time for shawarma is now," says Ben. "It's clear that the popularity of Shawarma is on the rise, seen in our impressive growth over the past 20 years into 120 locations! Join us ? and all Canadian restaurants serving Shawarma ? in celebrating National Shawarma Day on October 15."
