UAE startup Spot launches its food truck app

Spot, the leading F&B operator in Abu Dhabi, has launched a drive-thru application for on-the-go dining.

Thanks to the app, customers can locate their nearest food trucks through a map service and pre-order meals to be delivered to their cars, providing an efficient alternative to long queues and waiting times.

Within the app, users can simultaneously browse options, offers and order from multiple chains at once. In parallel, food truck operators can gain access to the free digital platform without being charged a commission fee.

Spot operates in hot spots, where on-the-go food options are in high demand. They can be found in high-traffic locations, serving a variety of meal options.

Founded by Emirati entrepreneur Ahmed Al Fahim, Spot provides “spots” for popular local F&B brands to grow their business. Operating across Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, the Spot food truck parks are go-to destinations for food truck patrons to quickly and conveniently get their orders from the comfort of their cars.

Al Fahim said: “With Spot, we are committed to creating an integrated ecosystem that offers a combination of food, community and entertainment, bringing the best F&B experiences. Our brand fosters a thriving and supportive environment to enable the local food truck industry and drive its sustainable economic growth.”

Commenting on their partnership, Mohamed Al Falasi, founder and CEO of Saddle, said: “Our partnership with Spot has been instrumental in addressing the challenges and evolving needs of the F&B industry. We are committed to delivering exceptional food experiences by identifying and catering to customers’ needs for innovative solutions.”
