World-renowned franchise Kenny Rogers Roasters has officially opened in Dubai, with its chic flagship restaurant in Deira attracting queues of customers since its soft launch.
Located in Manazil Al Muraqqabat, near Al Ghurair Centre in Deira, Kenny Rogers Roasters officially opened on Tuesday (February 28), with dignitaries from the Philippines and Malaysia attending the “chicken-cutting” ceremony led by Luis Daniel, Senior Vice President, and Gavin West, Director of Operations and Business Development.
“We’ve had overwhelming footfall since our soft opening,” West told Expatmedia.net. The best-seller? Their signature rotisserie-roasted chicken, of course.
Diners can also try other “deliciously healthy” meals, including their unfried fried chicken. “We will be introducing new items to cater to UAE demographics,” West said.
West shared that he became a big fan of the casual dining brand after seeing its market dominance in the Philippines. “You could see the queues. Not only in one store but every single store,” he said. Watch the interview here:
For the Philippine market, Kenny Rogers Roasters introduced Salted Egg chicken and Korean-inspired Kimcheese Roast. In the UAE, Kenny Rogers Roasters also offers a variety of dishes to suit the local palate, such as Wrap & Roll Chicken and Kani & Mango Salad.
It remains to be seen whether there will be more additions to the menu soon, but West promised: “We aim for simply delicious”. “New brands in the market tend to overcomplicate the menu. We aim for simply delicious,” he said. ICA/Expat Media
