30th September 2022, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Subway, one of the world’s largest restaurant brands, in partnership with its master franchisee, Kamal Osman Jamjoom Group (KOJ Group), announced a new restaurant in Arjan. The new restaurant is the UAE’s 125th Subway location, expanding the brand’s presence in the region as consumers are increasingly demanding more better-for-you, convenient food options.
The restaurant opening included attendance from Subway’s Chief Executive Officer John Chidsey and President of EMEA Mike Kehoe, as well as KOJ Group’s Chairman and Founder Kamal Jamjoom and CEO Hisham Al Amoudi.
“Over the past year, Subway has rapidly expanded its global footprint by signing nine international agreements with well-established, large-scale operators, like the KOJ Group. These agreements will result in over 5,300 new international restaurants,” said John Chidsey. “It was truly an honor to attend the opening of the 125th Subway restaurant in the UAE and experience the brand’s excitement from our international guests.”
“The KOJ Group is Subway’s first exclusive master franchisee in the UAE, and we were thrilled to have John and Mike here to witness the first of many new restaurant openings in the country,” said Kamal Jamjoom. “We look forward to continuing to grow Subway’s presence in the region and delivering better food and a better guest experience across all of the restaurants in the UAE.”
The partnership with the KOJ Group is part of Subway’s multi-year transformation journey to build a better Subway and improve all aspects of the brand as the business expands its presence around the world.
