The UAE team are in advanced discussions with a number of potential franchise partners within the emirates and in the new geographies and a new store is already planned for early 2016 with further new store announcements to follow.
“We’re excited to now be in a position to leverage our management team’s depth of knowledge, talent and regional knowledge. I look forward to talking to potential franchise partners who share our core beliefs and values in this new chapter in our expansion strategy,” adds Siddiqui.
