A newly established hospitality group with QSR, premium casual dining and dark kitchen F&B concepts, Maristo Hospitality, is welcoming 12 existing Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants to its remit.

Taking the total number to 41 restaurants, now all of the Popeyes restaurants in the UAE will be managed under Maristo Hospitality’s administration.

“We see a great future for the Popeyes brand in the UAE and it is a key pillar in the company. As we grow the business, bringing the franchise under one operational arm to maintain the premium quality and service to our customers was a strategic step. Popeyes is a cherished brand with a 20-year history in the country and 50 years globally, so it is important for us that each customer enjoys their meal in its full authenticity,” said Gaurav Arora, Chief Executive Officer, Maristo Hospitality.
