DUBAI, UAE, APRIL 14, 2021 Restauranteurs in the Middle East are showing no signs of slowing down, Dubai-based F and B firm Restaurant Secrets Inc. (RSI) has reported.
Since the start of this year, RSI has worked with 15 individual restaurants on full turnkey solutions, menu development, auditing, and brand management, in addition to a further four brand new venues that are set to open this month and next.
"Despite being in the midst of a pandemic, business in the restaurant development world has remained steadfast. People still want to open restaurants and we are observing this firsthand with our current clients and incoming daily enquires," said Gabrielle F. Mather, CEO Founder, Restaurant Secrets Inc.
"We're also witnessing a rise in restauranteurs using our services to fine tune their offering, whether that be through key menu enhancement, new layouts interior design, talent requisition, franchise development or other, as business owners become ever more resilient to strengthen their business models. It's refreshing to see a return to detail, and I think the pandemic is a driving force behind this," she added.
Of the projects successfully delivered so far this year, RSI has worked with venues including Greek pita street food eatery Pita Greek and artisanal pizzeria, Pizzart in Dubai on a full turnkey solution, as well as Montauk Boutique Cafe, Tapas, Medi Terra, Freshand Light, Cut Pizza, Urban Wok and That Cafe in Abu Dhabi, Skeet, Utopia Bakery and Gulf Bakery in Ras al Khaimah, Street Carbs in Oman, and Else in Saudi Arabia on menu development, brand management and auditing.
Current projects that are soon-to-open include a two-storey modern cafe and lounge in Abu Dhabi called M1, a contemporary shisha lounge serving grilled meats and small plates in Dubai called Sage, as well as Amazigh, a North African Restaurant with focus on Moroccan cuisine, and Vanilla Rose in Sharjah, a pastry-focused cafe that has a flower shop within the restaurant.
"Since the pandemic began, many clients have come to RSI for headhunting, auditing and operational support, as well as SOPs and personal management services. Restauranteurs are paying closer attention to the details than they were before, which is a very encouraging. Were also receiving many enquires for assistance with feasibility studies in-line with the increasing interest in new openings. Its positive to see that things are not slowing down," Gabrielle concluded.
