Five Guys to arrive at The Dubai Mall this summer
Fast casual American chain to open its first outlet in the region this month
Five Guys, an American fast casual restaurant chain focused on hamburgers, hot dogs, and French fries, will debut in Middle East this month (i.e. May 2015), with its first outlet at The Dubai Mall.
Five Guys is a family business started by Jerry and Janie Murrell and, as the name suggests, includes five sons Tyler, Ben, Chad, Matt and Jim. The brand opened its first outlet nearly 30 years ago near Washington DC.
Murrell said: “The arrival of Five Guys in the Middle East is a dream come true. We’re delighted to have the support of a regional partner whose interests, namely letting the food do the talking, are so closely aligned with ours.”
Rise LLC is the local franchise partner for Five Guys; commenting on the Dubai opening, RISE director Tyrone Reid said: “Rise strives to deliver an unrivalled and unique guest experience through lasting partnerships with brands who have equal passion.
“Our first store opening in The Dubai Mall represents the first step in our planned UAE rollout, and we’re looking forward to bringing the Five Guys experience to subsequent locations in Dubai and the UAE over the months ahead.”
The restaurant will offer an array of 100% customizable halal burgers and hotdogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, free toppings, hand cut fries that are cooked in 100% pure peanut oil, and the latest brand offering, the Five Guys customizable milkshake.
