Saudi Arabia deal paves way for Middle East and Asia push

Jun 01st

Casual Dining Group has signed a franchise deal to open multiple restaurants in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The agreement with Riyadh-based retail and leisure conglomerate Fawaz Alhokair Group comes as CDG looks to accelerate its expansion in the Middle East and Asia. Last year CDG opened a Café Rouge in Dubai and earlier this year launched a Bella Italia in India, with both restaurants operated via franchise.
