The Forum will take place at the JW Marriott Hotel. Speakers include the senior Directors of food brands such as Which Wich, Burger Ranch and Doner Kebab. This is an opportunity to become a stakeholder of one of the new and emerging brands which are seeking to build multi-unit, country level franchises in the Region.
The IFF Program for the 24th April will cover topics such as an overview of food franchise development in the Middle East, franchising trends in the decade ahead, successful brand development and the all important presentation of 40 franchises to the Delegates.
Individual business meetings will be held on the 25th April for more in-depth discussions and negotiations.
Following on from its proven success earlier this year in Qatar and also at the recent Gulfood 2012 in Dubai, Paul Cairnie, as CEO, commented that “As well as the great Fast Casual food franchises that are really doing well in the region, we believe the introduction of B2B and B2C service franchises to the market can only benefit local entrepreneurs and businesses.”
Qatar's franchise forum was great success, and here are some thoughts from those who came:
"I have attended many restaurant industry events and trade shows over the past 15 years searching to connect with the right people … people interested in new business opportunities and aggressive growth. World Franchise Associates’ International Food Franchise Forum was perfectly targeted to this purpose. The intimate scale of the forum and the high-caliber investors in attendance made this the most productive industry event I have attended." Peter Wright formerly of Panera Bread, USA
"Thank you for the great International Food franchise Forum that was held in Qatar." Ibrahim el Kai, Director, Business Development, Al Ghalia Co., Bahrain
"The most important thing about this forum is that Food Fabulous was able to take away a wealth of information on different fronts and to meet a lot of people from the industry. We would definitely be part of the next forum and hopefully we could also work with you to add different perspectives to it as well in order to further enhance the experience of the attendees Once more we thank you for your efforts and wish you all the best." Salma Maher, CEO, Food Fabulous, Qatar
"Professional, polished and pivotal. This is the way The World Franchise Associates operates. Paul and Kit did a remarkable job bringing qualified candidates to explore, engage and become educated with some of the leading brands across the globe. Which Wich was delighted to present and left even more enthused to develop and deepen the dynamic frontier of international expansion with the assistance of such wonderful hosts." Todd Sinelli, International Director, Which Wich, USA
