About Us

Serving fresh, fast, and authentic Mediterranean flavors since 2014

Who We Are

Meddys is a fast casual restaurant offering excellent and guilt-free Mediterranean selections served fast, at affordable prices. In 2014, we opened our first location in East Harry Street, Wichita, providing our neighborhood with delightful dining experiences, from mouthwatering dishes to friendly servers in a relaxed, modern atmosphere.

At Meddys, freshness and hospitality are at the heart of what we do. Every dish is made to order using only the freshest and locally sourced ingredients. We go the extra mile to give you and your friends a wonderful time, every time.

Today we serve the most delicious hummus, shawarmas, kebabs, and signature cocktails at three branches on East Harry Street, North Greenwich Road, and downtown on South Washington — our newest location. So indulge in healthy, flavorful meals and feel the good vibes at a Meddys branch near you.

Our Food

Our food is made from scratch, including our pitas that are baked and delivered daily from John’s Pita Bakery in Wichita, KS. Each ingredient is carefully prepared, from the fresh chickpeas that go into our creamy hummus to the freshly carved meats from our traditional rotating spits, serving each customer full-flavored, authentic, and healthy Mediterranean cuisine.

We start with thinly sliced, fresh beef rounds, traditionally seasoned and marinated in lemon and garlic, which is then hand-stacked onto a rotating spit, slowly cooked and roasted to perfection. Our pitmasters let the heat break down the connective tissue of the meat, making it tender while the natural fat slowly renders, ensuring each bite is juicy and flavorful. The exterior of the meat crisps just a little bit, providing rich textural contrast.

Delight in our white-meat chicken shawarma, marinated with a special blend of mild spices and seasonings and hand-carved right off the spit. Whether you like your meat wrapped in our fresh pitas, in build-your-own rice bowls, or on top of our famous hummus, you’ll surely get a succulent taste of the Mediterranean.

Our History

Meddys founder Alex Harb created Meddys with a steadfast mission to serve fresh, fast, and affordable Meditteranean cuisine in America. Our story began in the late 1990s when Alex moved to the United States from Lebanon to attend Wichita State University as a computer science major. He put himself through school by working at restaurants, gaining a wealth of experience in the kitchen while waiting tables. After founding success in his IT and computer sales business, Alex decided to pursue his passion of becoming a restaurateur.

Alex wanted to share the authentic Lebanese-Mediterranean staples from his childhood and saw the opportunity to pioneer a Meditteranean fast-casual concept. Together with a Lebanese cook, they created a simple menu based on his mother’s traditional cooking along with the Mediterranean herbs and spices that he learned at his father’s grocery back home. In 2014, Meddys was born, the concept focuses on the freshest and simplest ingredients, hand-crafted to make each dish healthy, all-natural, and bursting with goodness.
