Deal will see ice cream outlets opened across Gulf state over next three years
Tablez Food Company, the food and beverage division of Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group International, is planning to open 30 London Dairy ice cream outlets across the UAE over the next three years, the firm’s CEO has confirmed.
London Dairy offers a variety of flavoured ice cream desserts and already has outlets in Dubai, Sharjah, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, which have been managed by Gulf franchise holder UAE-based IFFCO Group of Companies since 2000.
Tablez Food Company, which is owned by Indian businessman and Lulu Hypermarkets boss Yusuffali MA, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with IFFCO to open the outlets.
“It is a privilege to be associating with a company like IFFCO for the franchise of London Dairy… We strongly believe that this tie-up is a step forward in quenching the preferences of consumers through the superior products of London Dairy,” said Shafeena Yusuffali, CEO of Tablez Food Company.
“We plan to open at least 30 London Dairy franchise outlets to cater to the needs of the consumers in the UAE within the next three years”, she added.
Tablez Food Company made headlines recently when it produced ‘The Golden Phoenix’, the world’s most expensive edible cup cake valued at AED3,700 a piece, under its Bloomsbury’s boutique café brand.
The firm’s portfolio also includes Peppermill, a fine-dining restaurant, De Thali, a casual Indian dining restaurant and Tanjara restaurants spread across various Emirates in the UAE.For all the latest gourmet news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
