Wendy's and Alghanim to open new stores across the region
Wendy’s and Alghanim Industries have shared plans for Wendy’s growth in the MENA 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.
The Jumeirah Beach Road restaurant, around the corner from Kite Beach, 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.
In The Dubai Mall, the outlet will be located in the food court opposite the aquarium. The second mall launch in Abu Dhabi’s Al Wahda Mall will see the burger chain take on 170 square metres of space, with its own seating area in the food court.
This comes as Wendy’s makes additions to its menus, including the recently launched pulled beef and pulled chicken sandwiches.
In 2017, Alghanim Industries opened three locations in Kuwait in The Avenues, Fahaheel and Marina Mall, in addition to the flagship store it opened in 2016 at Blajat Street, Salmiya. The company will continue opening more stores this year, the first being in the new Kout Mall.
