Shakey’s opens first store in Dubai
Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures has further expanded its presence in the Middle East with the opening of its first store in Dubai.
The local pizza chain broke record sales during its opening day in Dubai.
“We are proud to say that our store broke several Shakey’s records on that day – the highest total net sales during opening day and the largest number of pre-sold loyalty program ‘Supercards,” Aljeel Chief Executive Officer Firas Hurieh.
Located opposite Burjuman Mall and just a few steps from EXIT 4 of Burjuman Metro Station, the new store represents the first of nine outlets franchisee Aljeel Capital has committed to open over a span of five years.
Shakey’s ended the first quarter with a total of 212 stores locally. The store in Dubai is the second international store which owns the perpetual rights to the Shakey’s brand for the Middle East, Asia (excluding Japan and Malaysia), China, Australia, and Oceania.
With two area development agreements already signed up, Shakey’s total international pipeline is at least 20 outlets over the next few years.
