The donut store will be situated in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.
The new location will be located at North Ring Road .1234 in the Al Nakheel Center. This will be Anjul Arabia Trading’s first Duck Donuts location in Saudi Arabia, with plans to open a further 10 units and begin sub-franchising after signing a master franchise agreement with Duck Donuts in October 2019.
“We are delighted to add Saudi Arabia to the growing list of countries where Duck Donuts is expanding and is making a positive impact within the local community,” said Betsy Hamm, Duck Donuts CEO.
“We look forward to their rapid development of this exciting market, giving those throughout the country the chance to taste and experience our warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts.”
Saudi Arabia has adopted the ‘Vision 2030’ plan, in the hopes to diversify the economy and reduce dependence on oil. Duck Donuts’ expansion into Saudi Arabia feeds into the diversification of the Saudi economy.
“Since we have opened our doors, the positive feedback from all customers is motivating us to bring Duck Donuts to every mall in Saudi and open drive-through locations throughout the country to give everyone the chance to experience our delicious, warm donuts and great coffee,” said Mohammed Alsherhri, Duck Donuts Kingdom of Saudi Arabia co-owner.
“We look forward to continuing to grow the brand in Saudi Arabia and play a significant role in helping our country achieve its Saudi Vision 2030 Plan.”
The store will reflect the classic beach and family-friendly setting that Duck Donuts is known for. Beyond donuts, this location will also serve coffee, milkshakes, breakfast sandwiches, frozen beverages and much more.
