Semsom: Spreading the Lebanese Way around the World

In 2007, while on a visit to the US, entrepreneur/super mom Christine Sfeir took a taxi that would change her life. She was disappointed that the taxi driver had never heard of the beautiful country she came from, Lebanon.

He knew nothing of our famous cuisine, our culture, or anything else that makes Lebanon so special.

How can the beauty and cuisine of Lebanon not be known around the world!

As soon as she came back home she started working on this new mission – to spread the taste of Lebanon around the World.

The two-year hunt was on! 1500 recipes were gathered and finally Semsom was born (“Semsom” means Sesame in arabic)

After touring and sourcing local villages around Lebanon, hunting for new takes on old recipes.

Semsom created healthy and delicious Lebanese dishes with a modern twist.

Made from fresh ingredients and innovative pairings like hummus and sumac, orange blossom water and osmalieh vermicelli, and so many more!

And why not add a TWIST to the traditional – along with the traditional Hummus – you should not miss the AVOCADO HUMMUS (green) SUMAC HUMMUS (pink) and so many more interesting combinations!

By 2011, the first Semsom franchise opened in Jeddah and later that year Semsom was named the fastest growing company in Lebanon.

Semsom continues to grow today, and is now in Five Countries in the Middle East.

This amazing super mama continued to follow her dream, and with the help of her sister, Carine, in 2015 Semsom continued its global expansion with the first outlet opening in New York City, followed by 2 more stores in 2016. And very soon hitting the west coast with a restaurant opening in California!
