Wendy’s opens flagship restaurant near Kite Beach


    Wendy’s and Alghanim Industries has announced strategic plans for the US fast food chain’s growth in the Middle East and North Africa region.

    Four new stores will be opening across the UAE, including The Dubai Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road, Nakheel Mall on the Palm Jumeirah and Al Wahda Mall in Abu Dhabi.

    These four stores are strategically located in high foot traffic areas, a statement said. The Jumeirah Beach Road restaurant will be the largest opening in the UAE so far, with seating for 70 diners indoors and a further 16 on the balcony overlooking Jumeirah Beach Road. Wendy’s Jumeirah will also be open 24 hours a day, with drive-thru and delivery options available. The expansion plans will continue with the opening of three further restaurants within prominent malls in the UAE, the statement added.

    Phil Broad, vice president of F&B at Alghanim Industries, said: “It is a hugely exciting time for Wendy’s, with the opening of our four new restaurants in the United Arab Emirates this year. The building of the flagship Jumeirah restaurant marks a new era in the Emirates with our largest opening in the UAE to date.”
