New Kabob Fast Casual SKWR to Open in D.C.
On August 28, SKWR, a new fast-casual kabob restaurant, will open in the heart of Downtown Washington, D.C. (1400 K St NW) for lunch and dinner. While kabob is as common but versatile as the hamburger, owners Tamim Shoja, Hemad Khwaja, and Masoud Shoja plan to differentiate their fast-casual restaurant with their takes on classic kabob recipes.
Originally a word in Farsi, kabob is now a globally recognized word, transcending cultural and language barriers. The lack of vowels in the brand’s name reflects the lack of vowels in the alphabet of their native Farsi.
