Fast-casual restaurant PITA Mediterranean Street Food has its second location in Forsyth County up and running.

Serving "authentic" Mediterranean cuisine, PITA opened June 15 in the Pine Tree Commons shopping center at 2340 Atlanta Highway, replacing Pars Kabob & Grill, a former Persian restaurant.

Started in Peachtree City in 2011, the company has rapidly expanded around metro Atlanta, including a stall in Halcyon's Market Hall.

The menu features handmade falafels, salads, hummus, and fresh sauces to go with its staple shawarma and gyro sandwiches.

The new Cumming location is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
