American hamburger restaurant Fuddruckers will be joining the numerous eateries and retail shops in Oman following an agreement recently signed by the Al Zaman Group of Companies, which also signed recent deals to bring Indus restaurant and Caramel Restaurant and Lounge to the sultanate.
“Hospitality is one of the areas where Al Zaman Group wants to expand significantly as we strongly believe that a robust and successful hospitality sector is very important for national progress and global recognition,” Al Zaman Group Director Khalid Zaman said. “Fuddruckers is a unique restaurant. Though hamburger is its signature, its engaging menu offers variety for many tastes and likings with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads, all based on the principal of 'Freshly Prepared, Best Ingredients and Prepared as the Customer Wants.' World over, this casual dining restaurant is also known for its fun and relaxed family-orientated dining experience. Moreover, in this region, Fuddruckers has changed its menu and tastes to a great extent according to the local milieu. This explains why this chain is doing extremely well in this part of the globe. We are truly honored to bring Fuddruckers to Oman, with its first outlet coming up soon in Qurum in the heart of Muscat city.”
The original Fuddruckers restaurant, established in 1980, was launched by Phil Romana with the goal to suit consumers who were apprehensive about the quality of hamburger, ingredients used and the way in which it was prepared. Fuddruckers’ burgers are created with 100 percent pure quality freshly ground beef, giving them the reputation of the “World’s Greatest Burgers.” In addition, the hamburgers are cooked to order for each customer and a toppings bar is offered so consumers can pick and choose their favorite condiments and veggies to pile on top.
“We are thrilled to be expanding in the Middle East region and look forward to becoming an integral part of the Omani social circles,” Fuddruckers Managing Director Othman Kolaghassi said. “Fuddruckers is known for its hamburgers but to many it may be a surprise that Fuddruckers' most popular dish is the Dynamite Shrimp - a recipe par excellence that has been especially selected by Sheikh Saleh - the franchisee owner of Fuddruckers in Arabia. We are very excited to start our outlet in Oman and want to thank the Al Zaman Group for their support and look forward to a long-standing fruitful association.”
Al Zaman is an Oman-based business group that operates companies in Oman, the UAE, United Kingdom, Italy and Singapore.
