The new franchise in The Sustainable City is set to open in June 2018.
Adding to its portfolio of twelve outlets currently in operation across the UAE, 800PIZZA has announced its newest outlet in line with achieving its goal of having 15 outlets in operation by 2020.
The single unit agreement was made with FIA Holdings Limited, which will be responsible for developing and operating the newest 800PIZZA outlet. Located within the growing Al Qudra area, The Sustainable City, this will mark the brand’s 13th outlet across the UAE in 11 years.
Alessandro D’Ubaldo, founder of 800PIZZA said, “It is a testament to the strength of the 800PIZZA name. It is evident that the current market conditions are challenging to any business, but we’re still going strong, and growing. Now, thanks to this new agreement with FIA Holdings Limited, we’ll be bringing the authentic taste of Italy to a new area of Dubai.”
According to D’Ubaldo, the key to a successful operation is to source strategic locations with a promising customer base, and that the business’ franchising program has been tailored to meet today’s conditions and demands. “Considering the high profile of the brand, the franchising fees and running costs are reasonable, with extensive operational and marketing support included. These days it’s also possible to find great locations at a better cost,” he explained
