From Cravings to Community
Iman moved to the United States in 2011. Her primary goal - to find community in her new country. What she did not expect was that she wouldn’t be finding it, rather she'd have to build it.
Unable to find the tastes of her culture - the cravings that she had for home - she decided to begin making her familiar dishes and to share them with neighbors. From there, friendships grew, as did her path as a food entrepreneur - Koshary Corner.

What is Koshary ?
Koshary is the National Dish of Egypt and it has always been plant-based.
After all, this meal is meant to be affordable, accessible and satisfying. It is found in our homes and on the streets as a favorite quick dish. Today it is the heart of our food truck & restaurant. We cannot wait for you to join us for a taste and to try our spin on our favorite.

Who will be cooking your delightful meals?
We hire immigrant and refugee women who are driven by dreams for a better life for themselves and their families. We train them and through the process we discover how skilled and passionate they are. They truly add value to our brand in so many ways.
We’re proud that our team is a perfect representation of this land. We are all here for the right to live with dignity and honor. We are all here to dream, work, and accomplish.
We’re grateful for our staff members' talents, skills and work ethic.
How is our brand driven by purpose?
We might be a small business, but we make big commitments and call them IMPACT.
We are committed to methods that save animals, our fellow inhabitants of this planet. Over consumption is driving inhumane practices. It’s just an ugly fact about our current food system. We strongly want to become part of the solution, not the problem. That being said, at Koshary Corner we don’t tell people what to eat: You do You. However, we are absolutely in the business of creating options that enrich the market and give people broader, healthy and satisfying choices.
We are committed to sustainability. Sourcing biodegradable and compostable packaging is a priority for us. We realize and bear the burden of the waste we create inhabiting this planet; it is front and center for us to create as small of a footprint as possible.
We’re committed to our fellow humans. We share, donate, and help out every chance we get. Learn more about our campaign #Don'tEatAlone below.
To date we’ve donated ( 3400 ) meals
Where will you find us creating impact?
#Don'tEatAlone is an ongoing campaign that started the day we opened our doors on October 5th, 2018.
Through the campaign we donate one free koshary meal for every three koshary bowls we sell.
We created an in-house token system where our customers become active participants. They get handed a token when they buy a Koshary bowl. They then have the choice to drop it in one of four boxes representing four different charity partners.
Each box displays tidbits about the organization and its efforts in bettering the local and/or global community.
This is where our slogan comes full circle.
