Our Family's Story

Habibi's Mediterranean Foods has been family run and operated since starting in 2008 in a tiny facility on West Broadway, VacouverYears before it became what it is today, Habibi’s was a very popular Middle eastern restaurant specializing in vegetarian and vegan dishes. Habibi’s, the restaurant, had unfortunately closed their dining room but continued producing hummus in a tiny space next door and distributed it through some grocery stores around the city. When the opportunity presented itself to purchase the Habibi’s brand, Abe Chaaban (owner and CEO) jumped at an opportunity he had always wanted to do - create a hummus company! With the well-known name of Habibi's already being a staple in the community, he felt he could really accomplish his vision of producing hummus on a larger scale, in many different flavours and packaging it to sell wholesale.  Many years later, we hear great stories and fond memories from former customers of the restaurant who are delighted they can now take Habibi’s home with them. With the help of his mother, a restaurant entrepreneur herself, they based the current Habibi's products on recipes from his mother and grandmother all while keeping the essence of the original Habibi's restaurant in the final product. A good friend and now business partner, Jeff Anderson joined the team in 2015 alongside Abe, Sofia (Abe’s wife) and Mona (Abe’s mother).  

The amazing story behind the Habibi's family started when they left South of Lebanon with the goal to achieve greater things. Abe's parents went to Iraq to study and work but had to leave due to the country's political turmoil, relocating to the US to finish their education. With 3 kids, they packed up as much as they could and made the journey to Arizona. Speaking barely any English upon arrival, his parents were determined to learn quickly to manage whatever was thrown at them by the time they began their classes. 

When Abe's parents finished their Masters degrees they couldn't return to Lebanon as the country was in civil war and their US green cards and student visas had expired. The next best thing was to pack up their Oldsmobile station wagon and take the family across the country and over the border to Vancouver, Canada. This was 1988. 

From that time until now, the family has owned several restaurants, including Mona's Lebanese Fine Cuisine in downtown Vancouver. This was the first Lebanese Fine cuisine with the entire package of Mediterranean music, belly dancing, traditional Lebanese food and incredible atmosphere that would make you feel like you were in one of the best spots in Beirut, Lebanon.
