RSI’s acquisition and operating rights of the five restaurants also includes that of a brand new concept called The Loft at Dubai Opera, a French-inspired restaurant, La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie, as well as two additional restaurants. The final addition will be the introduction of a new gastropub concept to the UAE dining scene scheduled to open during Q2 of this year.
Ralph Homer, CEO and Co-Founder of RSI said, “We are pleased to mark the start of 2019 with such a significant expansion. This is a major step towards increasing our regional footprint and growing our portfolio of strongly operated brands. This deal is part of our vision in reforming the region’s lifestyle dining scene, by bringing experiential dining to the forefront.”
The expansion increases RSI’s portfolio to over 15 restaurants and food concepts planned for 2019-20, as it continues its major expansion plans across Dubai, London and KSA to become a leading firm in F&B incubation and restaurant management. RSI has actively developed more than 200 successful restaurant concepts across the UAE, GCC and London since 2008.
