International Foods and Kitchen Goods

The roots of Mor’s International Grocery started in 2006 when Mr. Sall and his wife, Kadiatu Jalloh, began the process of opening the Mashallah Restaurant. The restaurant was first operated out of a kitchen by Kadiatu who specialized in creating pre-packaged meals for the on-the-go lifestyle of the area’s taxi cab drivers. The packaged meals were delivered directly to cab drivers at the airport and to the Millennium Market grocery store on Bardstown Road before an established restaurant was formed. After establishing a customer base, the investment was made to open a physical location for the Mashallah Restaurant in 2009. Since the opening, there has been the intention to expand into a grocery store. Due to the increasing volume of customers to Mashallah, the restaurant was relocated in 2013 from 4113 Bardstown Road to 3927 Bardstown Road. The new location also contained space for the creation of Mor’s International Grocery (MIG). MIG was officially opened in August 2013. The new restaurant and grocery is located off Six Mile Lane and is approximately 1.5 miles south of the Watterson Expressway.
