CAFÉ YOUNES’ BLACK COFFEE TO EXPAND IN THE UAE
The firm is set to take its specialty coffee shop concept Black Coffee outside of Lebanon, with plans to open its first outlet abroad in Dubai in the first quarter of 2020. Faysal Younes, managing partner, told HN that the shift of focus onto independent outlets with a boutique approach, solid in their core execution and passionate about the premium coffees they serve, had convinced the firm that the timing for their expansion was spot on. “Black Coffee by Café Younes is an extension of the Café Younes’ heritage and history, with an eclectic design experience and an industrial, yet warm interior with an Arabic-rooted feel,” he said. “We are in the process of securing our first location in Dubai very soon, while keeping a close eye on other markets, such as KSA and Kuwait, for which we are currently in negotiation with different parties.”
