Abu Dhabi web developer hoping to attract Facebook’s interest with ShawarmaChat messaging service

High hopes that online platform for Arabic food enthusiasts will follow in WhatsApp’s footsteps

ABU DHABI: A Lebanese web entrepreneur is looking to follow in the footsteps of WhatsApp and soon see his creation snapped up by Facebook in a multi-billion dollar deal.

Abu Dhabi-based Fadi Hulbert, 32, is the man behind ShawarmaChat, an online messaging service for people who like Arabic food, and says he is has already offered his technology to with Mark Zuckerberg’s social media giant.

Although Facebook is yet to respond to Hulbert’s email, he says he’s hoping for a call in the next few days. “It is the weekend, after all. I imagine Mark’s just waiting to speak to his lawyers.”

    Could you please send Fadi’s number. I need to place an order for a home delivery. It may not be the call he is waiting for, but I’m famished.
