Alghanim Industries to open Wendy’s in Kuwait
Alghanim Industries and The Wendy’s Company, which last year formed a strategic collaboration to expand the hamburger company across the MENA region yesterday, announced plans to open their first Wendy’s restaurant in Kuwait. The restaurant will open by mid-December on Blajat Street in Salmiya.
While this will be Alghanim Industries’ first Wendy’s store in Kuwait, the brand is well established in the UAE, with 17 restaurants in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. In June, Alghanim Industries also announced plans to expand the brand into Saudi Arabia in 2017.
“After more than a year’s partnership with Wendy’s, this much is clear: people in the MENA region love this restaurant,” said Omar Kutayba Alghanim, CEO of Alghanim Industries. “Our first location in Kuwait – and our broader expansion plans – should be taken as a sign of our commitment to bringing Wendy’s to as many people in Kuwait and across the region as possible. Our customers are clamoring for more restaurant locations, and we are excited to provide them.”
