Over the years the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has established itself as a leading Food & Beverage (F&B) destination in the Middle East region. Dubai continues to attract international and home-grown F&B brands. UAE remains the location for international retailers as well as F&B operators looking to expand and enter the Middle East market.
Furthermore, this situation will most likely continue, especially in the run up to Expo 2020. We expect to see a steady rise in the number of new restaurant and food concept looking to set up a restaurant or chain in Dubai, as the UAE further strengthens its position as a global tourist destination with newer attractions and international food offerings.
