Shakespeare and Co. launches at Ibn Battuta Mall
23rd branch for the home-grown brand opens doors at the mall's China court
Shakespeare and Co. has added another location to its growing portfolio, with an outlet opening at Ibn Battuta Mall, targeting tourists and the residents of Discovery Gardens, JLT, Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Village.
Conceived and developed in the UAE, the concept has grown to 22 establishments since its first outlet opened in Dubai in 2001.
The newest establishment follows signature interior design aesthetics, with French-inspired seating, drapes and chandeliers. In addition to the indoor seating, Shakespeare and Co. have constructed an enclosed terrace which can be closed during the summer months and opened during the winter months. This location will be able to accommodate up to 200 customers.
The menu comprises a selection of international dishes and French pastry items. There is also a line of gourmet chocolates made at Shakespeare and Co.’s central production facility in the UAE, devoid of artificial additives or preservatives.
This year the brand has opened five new locations in UAE and two international franchise locations. For the coming year, the brand plans to open 10 new stores in the UAE and five more as franchise establishments throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
Shakespeare and Co. currently features Café Restaurant, Chocolate, Pâtisserie and Catering, and established presence in the UAE, USA, Oman, Qatar, Lebanon and Jordan, with branches due to open in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq in the near future.
