Just Falafel to open 85 outlets in Egypt
As part of an aggressive overseas growth plan, UAE-based food retailer Just Falafel has announced that it will expand into Egypt. Just Falafel announced it will be opening in the upmarket resort of Marassi, adding that it plans to follow up with 85 more over the next few years, Arabian Business reported. The move is part of the brand’s rapid expansion both within the GCC and internationally. The global roll out will see up to 44 more restaurants open this year as Just Falafel increases its presence in key markets such as the USA, Canada, Australia and India. The group said it has sold over 20 million falafels and is set to increase this significantly over the coming months. Just Falafel’s 8th restaurant in Egypt will be launched by Healthy Franchising, owned by Waleed Abouraya, who is the master franchisee for Just Falafel in Egypt. The company currently runs six restaurants in Cairo.
