The two Egyptian-born Englishmen who sell falafel out of a truck in Leeds

Meet The Falafel Guys, the two Egyptian-born Englishmen who sell Falafel out of a truck in Leeds. Ahmed and Abd Allah Gouda hold degrees in international business management and mechanical engineering, but for this past year the two brothers have been answering their true calling: Selling falafel made off for their mother’s recipe out of a bright, red truck on Briggate in Leeds. “This is like a miniature factory in a way. We source all the ingredients for the products, we make the products and then we sell them,” the brothers tell the Yorkshire Evening Post. “On our first day, we didn’t know if we would sell anything… but we actually sold out.” Since then, the brothers have been topping the charts on TripAdvisor and making headlines around the UK.
