New Kuwait contract for TKI
Dubai-based consultant to develop new restaurants for the Sultan Group
Dubai-based hotel and restaurant consultant, Thomas Klein International (TKI), has been awarded with a contract to develop two new restaurants in Kuwait for the Sultan Group. This is the fourth time that the two companies will work together.
The two separate outlets will be based in Al Bidaa in Kuwait, and will be located adjacent to each other in a venue formerly occupied by Tumbleweed. The Sultan Group decided to expand its existing food and beverage offering by opening a third Pizzetta as well as a brand new restaurant concept called Pickles, in the earmarked location.
Both casual dining restaurants are owned and managed by the Epicure Group, the food and beverage division of The Sultan Group.
“Pizzetta is famous for serving the only grilled pizzas in the region, and although the new outlet’s design will be based on the existing concept to ensure continuity, we will be adapting the new restaurant concept by adding a few unique twists,” explained Daniel During, managing partner, TKI.
“The second restaurant will be a ‘gastro burger joint’ serving burgers and sliders, and the concept revolves around the array of home-made pickles and radishes served as traditional condiments, hence the name Pickles. TKI will be responsible for developing the Pickles brand, to complement the fresh and modern logo, as well as the design of the restaurant.”
Ahmed Al Bader, director and co-founder of the Epicure Group, said: “There is already an established burger culture in Kuwait, and that is why we want to introduce Pickles to the existing food and beverage offering.”
“Currently there are many well-known burger brands, with approximately 200 different burger joints available in Kuwait, but we will be offering diners something very different by focusing on the freshness of the ingredients we use.”
