How does Baky Hospitality create authentic and unique F&B and lifestyle concepts?
Thanks to our team’s continuous efforts, Baky Hospitality creates unique and authentic F&B concepts by listening to clients’ demands, the market’s needs and upcoming trends. We aspire to disrupt and modernize the food and beverage industry in Egypt. We believe that there is always a way to do better.
Your manifesto states: “We think it’s cool to care!” What is the importance of listening to the consumer?
In our line of business, listening to customers’ demands and genuinely caring are essential to success. Our team is always building trustworthy and honest relationships with our clients, which is truly appreciated by our clientele.
Egypt’s F&B market is booming. Many people are interested in entering the market, and a great number of new places are opening. I believe that in the past few years, the market has evolved a great deal; it has become more attractive, and local talents with bags of potential have emerged. Although sourcing quality ingredients is challenging in Egypt, we have been able to provide the market with a great end product.
What are Baky Hospitality’s latest projects and what’s in the pipeline?
We have two new summer outlets coming up in Almaza Bay, one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the region. In July, we opened Megumi, a Japanese-inspired cocktail bar, where we serve bite-sized appetizers and sushi with a cocktail menu of classics and creative summery drinks concocted by our friend and beverage director, Walid Merhi.
A few days ago, we opened SACHI ALMAZA in the same area. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is a beach restaurant that was inspired by beach destinations where we have vacationed over the years. Our kitchen director, Tarek Alameddine, created a summery version of our original Sachi, focusing more on seafood and fresh flavors
As for the future, we are in the process of launching of our new hotel division. It’s a long-awaited dream that is starting to come to life. Although we are still in the early stages, we are very excited about introducing this new arm.
