The UAE Restaurant Community was founded in 2020 in Dubai to unite the leaders of the UAE hospitality industry leaders, share ideas and experiences, discuss current challenges, and find ways to improve the market by exchanging views.
“Restaurateurs are currently divided and communicate little with each other. We believe that one day, tens of thousands of restaurateurs from around the world will be united in a community in order to develop themselves, their restaurants, and the industry as a whole. The UAE restaurateurs community should work collectively together to transform the industry in a better way. Our next goal is to create a food & beverage think-tank for restaurant operators”, the UAE Restaurant Community founder Leo Dovbenko commented.
The community founder Leo Dovbenko (CEO and co-founder of YallaMarket and YallaHub, Syrve MENA co-founder) decided to bring all the UAE restaurant owners together in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. The main community agenda is to connect the market leaders, communicate inside the group, locate resources, work with the UAE government underlining restaurant operators’ concerns, and normalize the food app aggregators’ commissions. Knowledge of the above helps industry colleagues to be closer to each other to speed up sharing ideas, life hacks, and effective actions.
