WOW customers

Our halva is hand-made using the highest quality ingredients and traditional expertise that has been passed down through families for generations. Our premium base halva contains 65% tahini (crushed sesame seeds), which we believe to be by far the highest proportion anywhere on the market. Halva is a dessert with many benefits:

  • Vegan friendly, gluten- and lactose-free
  • Long shelf life – so customers tend to buy more
  • 80-85% haven’t tried it before, making it new and exciting
  • Over 35 popular flavours to sell
  • Constant development of further tahini-based products, such as ice cream & cookies

Bring halva to the world

Join Bary’s mission – to bring halva to the world!


In 2015 Bary arrived with a suitcase of halva and a mission to bring his dream to the UK. With his good friend Remi, Bary started the first SesamMe mall kiosk in Lakeside Shopping Centre. Having proven the business there, the boys soon opened another kiosk in Milton Keynes Shopping Centre. Within the first 12 months the duo sold over 12 tonnes of halva and swiftly had to move from suitcases to shipping containers!

There is LOVE for SesamMe:

  • Customers love us – we offer exciting new tastes
  • Landlords love us – we are new, dynamic and engaging
  • Franchisees love us – we help them become their own boss!

I am passionate about new product development and WOWing our customers. From new flavours of halva to tahini-based cookies and ice cream, we have a strong commitment to continue to develop new and exciting products for our franchisees to sell from their kiosks.”

Bary Levy, Founder

Bring halva to the world


With over 20 years of experience in UK franchising and as the former deputy director general of the British Franchise Association and a franchisee himself, Simon Wise was chosen by Bary and Remi to project manage the development and launch of the SesamMe franchise. Simon handpicked a special group of franchise professionals to build a truly unique, ethical, rewarding franchise opportunity.

“I’ve been at forefront of the UK franchise industry for over 20 years and in that time I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly; so I am using all my experience and franchising knowhow to build the best franchise opportunity - low entry costs, high profit potential and an excellent return on capital. We are building a real business format franchise with real potential to give our franchisees the lifestyle they always promised themselves.”

Wow friends

The initial total investment of circa £70K will get your new kiosk up and running, including stock and money to cover your living costs while you set up your new business. With our proven business model, the banks will typically lend up to 50% of the total initial investment, subject to status, which means you only need £35K of your own money.

If you work hard you can take home a very healthy income and build an asset to sell on in the future.
