Award winning restaurant & café committed to expanding worldwide


Reem Al Bawadi Restaurant & Café, the themed family restaurant that is renowned for their authentic Middle Eastern cuisine and superb hospitality, will be offering its franchising opportunities at the upcoming Gulfood 2015 which is taking place from 08-12 February at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The brand is set for expansion throughout the region, and further afield, as the restaurant and concept has become a Landmark product for many locals and foreigners visiting Dubai.

“We have been building the Reem Al Bawadi brand for more than a decade and ensured that we perfected the offering and experience of true Middle Eastern hospitality,” said Ayman Abdel Jaber, CEO, Reem Al Bawadi. “We are now committed to expanding in the region and to other international destinations so that our loyal customers can experience our hospitality in their own country, more regularly, and also to share our love for our cuisine with more people around the world.”  

Its flagship store in Jumeirah, Dubai, was launched in November 2001 with a simple concept in mind of serving the tastiest authentic Lebanese and Middle eastern cuisine along with the best Sheesha in town, all in a relaxed, sophisticated, and uniquely Arabian setting. Today it operates five branches in the UAE, one in Jeddah and soon another branch in Bahrain, Al Ain, serving more than 100,000 customers per month.  

“We see a huge potential for expansion in the coming two years and already have between six to eight international openings planned. We are aiming to target a mix of new markets and to fill-in market gaps and where opportunities arise,” added Mr. Jaber.


Mr. Jaber further added that the food service industry is growing strong globally and that there’s a global demand for concepts like Reem Al Bawadi as the concept and service standards are already well accepted and appreciated by all the nationalities. “A lot of our customers consider us as a ‘top-of-the-mind’ brand as an option for spending the evening out.”


“We look forward to meet potential investors at the upcoming Gulfood who can share our passion for the brand. Reem Al Bawadi is set for great expansion and we look forward to collaborating with eager hospitality aficionados who will grow with us from strength to strength across the UAE, the region and further afield,” concluded Mr. Jaber.

With the potential opening of more than 8 branches planned over the next two years, the owners welcome potential and interested investors to visit Reem Al Bawadi during Gulfood or to get in touch.
