Chairman of the Board

Mr. Mohamed Alabbar is one of the leading entrepreneurs and business magnates in the Middle East and Europe. Over a long and illustrious career, he has grown and transformed industries and skylines, as the founder of a number of the region’s foremost companies and investment firms – diversifying and advancing regional economies while enhancing their prominence on the world stage.

Americana Restaurants has always stood for more than just great food. For over half a century, we have brought millions of families and friends together to create lasting memories and shared experiences in a warm and welcoming environment.

These are the magical moments that inspire and energize the incredible people who make the diverse Americana Restaurants family. A unique group of talented and experienced professionals who work together as one exceptional team, connected by our ambitious vision and shared values, they are the engine that drives our success.

Over the decades, a once family-backed business has grown and transformed to reach unprecedented heights. We have built a footprint like no other in the Middle East, launching and scaling some of the world’s most iconic restaurant chains and developing exciting brands of our own.

This is why we are the preferred partner for iconic global brands, forging deep relationships that have continued to grow year after year. And we’re just getting started.

Technology and digitization are empowering us to reach more customers, in more ways, more quickly than ever before. Our industry is rapidly transforming, and we are at the forefront of that change, combining disruptive innovation with operational excellence, while always keeping our customers at the heart of what we do.

And when we succeed, so do the people around us. The Middle East is our home and we’re proud to have such a positive impact in our communities – bringing joy through food, supporting those in need through social programs, contracting local suppliers, and minimizing our environmental footprint to safeguard the future.

Through it all, we will continue to relentlessly pursue our vision with confidence in our strategy, leadership and capabilities. We will build on our reputation as a great place to work in order to continue to attract, engage and empower exceptional talent at every level of our organization. And we will maintain our position as the center of gravity for ambitious global brands seeking to capitalize on the vast potential of our markets – to grow our business and generate value for all our stakeholders.

The future is bright for Americana Restaurants, and we’re excited to make it a reality, one magical moment at a time.
