The Hanhan Family
Founded by our father, Saliba Hanhan in 1989, The Original Jerusalem Market in Sedgefield has been offering loyal customers the best Middle Eastern food and market specialties for nearly three decades. My brother Omar and I grew up in the shop and have been working along-side our father for years, with our expertise, knowledge, and passion for the food of our heritage always increasing. When customers started asking for more prepared foods and a place to enjoy them onsite, we decided the time was right for the next generation to grow our family business. So began Jerusalem Market on Elm, a full-service restaurant in the heart of Downtown Greensboro.
Jerusalem Market on Elm was founded in 2016 as an extension of their 27-year-old Sedgefield branch. Their father Saliba Hanhan founded the Original Jerusalem Market in Greensboro in 1989. Quickly he established a reputation for making the best Middle Eastern specialties and making no buts about it. “You Will Be Pleased” was soon cemented into their customer’s minds. Brother’s Easa and Omar grew up working in the store and always had a passion for it. They loved the store but their customers always asked them for more food and more seating, so given the chance they opened Jerusalem Market on Elm.
