Shrimp Nation, the largest seafood chain in Saudi Arabia, has announced its plans to open its first branch in the UAE.
Much like its outlets in the Kingdom, guests in the UAE will have the chance to indulge in seafood dishes that have been inspired by the very best French, Spanish, West African, and American cuisine. All of which will be served in Shrimp Nation’s signature open-kitchen concept that promises complete customer happiness and satisfaction.
“We believe that the UAE offers one of the best and most dynamic economic environments, where we will be able to prosper and open more branches over the few coming years,” explains Shrimp Nation’s CEO, Mohammed Belal Abualizz.
He adds that the seafood franchise will also be branching out into Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, and Jordan, thus furthering Shrimp Nation’s mission of becoming an internationally acclaimed business and successful international restaurant chain.
