Wendy’s Co. is ready for a bigger bite of the Middle East.
The Dublin-based restaurant chain has signed Alghanim Industries as its master franchisee for the region. The Kuwaiti conglomerate will open restaurants in the Middle East and north Africa, and has acquired 18 eateries in the United Arab Emirates. Those are the only Wendy’s currently operating in the region.
“Our presence in 40 countries across multiple industries equips us with the reach and the know-how to develop Wendy’s in the region successfully,” – CEO Omar Kutayba Alghanim
