Subway opens giant outlet in Dubai
Dubai, September 19, 2011
Subway, one of the biggest submarine sandwich franchises with more than 35,000 locations in 98 countries, has opened its gaint outlet at The Galleries in Downtown Jebel Ali, Dubai.
The Galleries, which is less than an hour by car from Abu Dhabi and directly accessed from Sheikh Zayed Road direct road or via its own Metro station, is a flagship project of master developer Limitless.
The 1,500 sq ft restaurant, which has a mezzanine floor overlooking the development’s landscaped plaza, is the largest in the Jebel Ali area and one of the biggest in Dubai, said a statement from Limitless.
It will add more food and beverage options to Dubai’s newest business hub and surrounding neighbourhoods, the statement added.
More than 2,000 people now work at The Galleries’ A-grade office towers: tenants include Siemens, L’Oreal, Ericsson, Arup, China National Petroleum Company and Kraft Foods, with more moving in shortly.
Open daily from 8am to 10pm, Subway joins a number of other eateries at The Galleries, including Dubai’s largest Oregano outlet, which spans 3,550 sq ft and has its own outdoor terrace.
The Galleries is also home to a Bakeria/Café Arabicca and a recently-opened Click restaurant, the statement said.
Bahaa Abouhatab, project director at The Galleries, said: 'We are delighted to add another household name to our growing business and retail community.'
'Our food outlets not only serve our onsite tenants, but are also a convenient stop for people calling into The Galleries to visit the banks here, or for hungry motorists on journeys between Dubai and Abu Dhabi,' Abouhatab remarked.
'And, with the cooler weather approaching, diners will soon be able to eat outdoors among the gardens and greenery of our shaded landscaped plaza,' he added.
Mohamed Eldarrat, managing director and partner of Wilshire Foods, said, “With its expanding number of commercial tenants and daily visitors, The Galleries is a natural choice for Subway.'
'We are delighted to open up here to serve this new, thriving business hub and the wider communities of New Dubai,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
