FIVE GUYS ANNOUNCES TWO NEW UAE LOCATIONS
Fans of the fast-casual food chain in Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be delighted with two new outlets in Jumeirah Beach Residences and Marina Mall Abu Dhabi
Dubai, UAE, 29 February 2016: Five Guys, the fast casual burger restaurant, is pleased to announce plans for two new UAE outlets, slated to open by Q2 2016. The two pending launches will represent the brand’s third Dubai location and first in Abu Dhabi, occupying prime real estate in Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai and Marina Mall Abu Dhabi.
Founded in the United States, Five Guys is a family business that was started by Jerry and Janie Murrell and, as the name suggests, includes five sons Jim, Matt, Chad, Ben and Tyler. With its first opening 30 years ago near Washington DC, Five Guys has since grown to become one of the most popular burger restaurants in the US and Canada, and has recently expanded into a host of new markets including the UK, UAE and KSA.
The Five Guys menu offers an impressive choice of 100% customizable halal burgers and hotdogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, free toppings, fries, and the Five Guys customizable milkshake. Every burger can be tailored to the customer’s tastes and preferences, including a wide selection of unlimited toppings and free accompaniments, from lettuce and tomato to fresh jalapenos and barbeque sauce. At Five Guys, all food is freshly prepared and made to order, such as the award-winning fries, which are hand-cut and expertly cooked in 100% pure peanut oil.
Commenting on Five Guys’ Emirates’ expansion, Tyrone Reid, Managing Director of Rise LLC said: “Five Guys’ arrival in the UAE last year transformed the fast casual dining landscape and we’ve been delighted by the huge success of the first store openings in The Dubai Mall and Dubai Marina Mall. During this time we’ve had an overwhelming number of inquiries about when we will be opening in Abu Dhabi and we’re now delighted to be able to announce our arrival in the first half of this year.”
Bill Peecher, Vice President, Middle East Operations at Five Guys commented: “We’re so pleased to be working with the constant support of our partner Rise LLC to bring Five Guys to the UAE. Our further expansion across the UAE underlines our positive positioning in the Middle East and we look forward to an exciting year ahead.”
