Hummus Heaven

People

Tarek and Mourad Cherif, along with 18 full- and part-time employees (depending on season).

About

Based in San Leandro, this family-run company originally got its start in Anaheim, California. For the past 15 years brothers Mourad and Tarek have worked with local and statewide farms and vendors to bring their unique brand of local, seasonally inspired hummus to the Bay Area. They offer 17 flavors of hummus and many accompanying food items including tapenades, grape leaves, pita chips, and more. Traditional techniques and small-batch productions are employed at their kitchen to give their products a North-African and Mediterranean flavor.

Sourcing

Hummus Heaven sources organic and seasonal items from the farmers markets when available. They take great pride in finding the best local ingredients all year long.

Fun Fact

Each year the brothers release three to four new items, often working directly with loyal customers to get the flavor profiles.
