Chairman and CEO’s Message

His Excellency Amr Al-Dabbagh

As I write this, I am in awe of how the past months have flown by and all that has happened during them.

Notable amongst them, is Al-Dabbagh Group’s (ADG) fourth place ranking in the Great Place To Work list of organizations in the Kingdom. Dubbed as an “organization designed for resilience, not only efficiency”,  ADG was recognized for our care and commitment to our colleagues during a globally challenging 2020. I am both proud and humbled to say that the sense of security and stability we were able to provide our most precious of assets: our people – was in large part due to our strong omnipreneurial governing ecosystem. Putting the wellbeing of our people first; whether colleagues, customers or stakeholders has always been at the forefront of our ecosystem. In 2020, when push came to shove, it has proven to be the key to our resilience. Thanks to each and every one of our colleagues, we were able to navigate through the rugged terrain and come out the other end stronger than before.

Another exciting development is the recent signing between our newly established Gulf First Fast Food Company and Popeyes. It is an exclusive Master Franchise and Development Agreement that will see hundreds of new restaurants opened throughout the Kingdom over the coming years. It allows us to create hundreds of career opportunities here at home coupled with a focus on delivering the best tasting brands to our customers.

I look forward to another busy upcoming quarter, and hope that you and your families all had restful, rejuvenating and peaceful Eid break.
