Bareburger, a burger restaurant group that began in New York City, will be making its Dubai debut in October at Festival City Mall, with three more locations to follow soon after.
The menu features organic, free-range produce and has been designed by John Simeonidis Jr., co-founder and chief design officer.
Simeonidis Jr. comments: “We wanted to keep the familiar look and feel of our restaurants as well build them within our typical sustainable efforts. With that said, sourcing local and reclaimed materials was very challenging.
“Fortunately, the wealth of knowledge our local partners brought to the process along with the expertise of Keane Brand LLC, the final result is a restaurant that I am proud of, and immensely thankful to have taken part in.”
Euripides Pelekanos, CEO of Bareburger added: “No matter where you are in the world, your most valuable assets are your partners. Just like back home, the success rate of any development is anchored in the people behind it.
“Having local partners who know the landscape of the country, the cities, the neighborhoods and the projects and who have the proven experience to bring an idea to life has made this endeavor an experience I’m happy to be a part of.”
