Dubai - MENA Herald:

Binghatti Hospitality, the hospitality arm of Binghatti Holding, recently celebrated the opening of another Cupagahwa branch in A’l Bahar Corniche in Abu Dhabi on the 22nd of March 2018.  The well-established café and restaurant brand will expand in the UAE and Saudi Arabia with an investment value worth more than AED 500 million.

With a vision to expand the Cupagahwa brand in the region, Binghatti Hospitality will soonly open the Sharjah Cupagahwa in Sharjah’s University City, Cupagahwa JBR at The Walk Jumeirah Beach Residences, and a branch Cupagahwa DIFC in Dubai International Financial Centre’s Gate Avenue.

With an ambitious plan to open 200 Cupagahwa branches all over the UAE and Saudi Arabia within three years, Binghatti Hospitality is set to invest over AED 500 million, demonstrating the true extent of the company’s commitment to adding the local flavor, and an Arabian-Culture twist, to its established international quality of foods, beverages and ambiance. This wide expansion will be supported by a 6000 square feet central kitchen facility which will produce Cupagahwa’ signature menu offerings for the Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah branches. Expected to open soon, this facility will include a training and development centre capable of training the chain’s hand-picked serving and management staff to the first-class standard expected of all Binghatti Hospitality employees.

The Cupagahwa cafés and restaurants offer a range of exclusive dishes of local Emirati flavors prepared on site such as Shakshuka, Balaleet, Fish Machboos, Chicken Machboos, in an international-style café. In addition to fresh locally sourced dishes, Cupagahwa cafés and restaurants serve a plethora of salads, dishes, beverages, pastries, cakes and desserts inspired from western delights. In addition, curious foodies always rush to try Cupagahwa’s permanently evolving range of never done before dishes and treats that unexpectedly appear on the menu. These gastronomic pleasures will soon be served in newly opened branches in the UAE to expand Cupagahwa’s innovated gastronomies and beverages.

Cupagahwa cafés and restaurants offer many local flavorful drinks. These local beverages can be enjoyed with Middle Eastern pastries and cakes such as Cheesecake Kunaffa and Cocoa Rahash Kunafa, or western ones such as the Carrot Cake and Red Velvet Cake. 

Sharing his thoughts on Cupagahwa’s new openings, Muhammad BinGhatti, Binghatti Holding’s CEO said: " We are proud to offer unique options to enjoy local Emirati flavors as well as western ones in the already operating Cupagahwa branches. We would like to expand the success of Cupagahwa all over the UAE and Saudi Arabia.  Located in unexpected and exciting locations, Cupagahwa cafés and restaurants are excellent alternatives to fine-dining and fast-food restaurants.”

Muhammad BinGhatti added: “We are continuously looking to develop and expand our Hospitality portfolio in the UAE and other GCC countries to provide better products and value to our Cupagahwa enthusiasts. Determined to open 200 Cupagahwa branches in the UAE and Saudi Arabia during the three coming years, we are eager to take advantage of the great opportunities offered by the UAE’s environment as well the economic dynamism witnessed Saudi Arabia. Our Cupagahwa brand added a great value to the UAE’s hospitality sector and we would like to extend this success to neighboring countries.”
