Tablez Food Company to bring Famous Dave’s of America to the UAE

October 12, 2015 | By RetailME Bureau

Tablez Food Company, the F&B division of the retail conglomerate Lulu International Group, has partnered with award-winning legendary pit barbeque restaurant concept Famous Dave’s of America Inc, with plans to bring the concept to the UAE. The agreement represents the first-ever expansion for the brand outside of the North American continent.

Towards early 2016 Tablez Food Company will open two Famous Dave’s outlets at the Abu Dhabi Mall and Dubai Parks and Resorts to cater to UAE’s food connoisseurs.

“Our vision is to become a leading player in the food and beverage retail sector by bringing in world-class brands to the region. Famous Dave’s food quality, great tasting BBQ and reputation for excellence make them an ideal brand to introduce to UAE food aficionados. We are proud to bring this Bar-B-Que experience to UAE to delight and exceed guest expectations,” says Shafeena Yusuff Ali, CEO of Tablez Food Company.

 “This international franchise expansion plan is an important partnership for the Famous Dave’s and we are thrilled to bring our authentic, award-winning, all-American legendary pit bar-b-que to the region,” adds Adam Wright, Interim CEO of Famous Dave’s of America, Inc. “We are strategically working with the best food and beverage group in the country, to provide our world-class bar-b-que dining experience specifically customised for the UAE.”

Famous Dave’s is all set to offer award-winning BBQ and grilled meats, a large selection of salads, made-from-scratch sides, authentic American burgers, sandwiches and classic desserts to its UAE guests. The menu items and BBQ technique have been inspired by Famous Dave’s founder, Dave Anderson, who travelled to top American BBQ destinations to curate the best BBQ techniques and recipes, a passion inherited by him from his father.
