Al Sayer Franchising is pleased to announce the opening of the first Five Guys location in the heart of Kuwait City on Sunday 22 May in Al Tijaria Tower. This is the fifth Five Guys location to open in the Middle East, and the 1358th internationally, inviting burger fans to experience an array of 100% customizable halal burgers and hotdogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, free toppings, fries, and the latest brand offering, the Five Guys customizable milkshake.
Five Guys is a family business started by the Murrell family and, as the name suggests, includes five sons, the “five guys.” With its first opening 30 years ago near Washington DC, Five Guys has since grown to be one of the most popular burger restaurants in the US and Canada and is expanding into a host of new international markets. The first opening outside of North America was in 2013 in London, England and now customers have a chance to dine at over 40 UK locations.
Every burger can be tailored to the customer’s tastes and preferences with a wide selection of free accompaniments and toppings, from lettuce and tomato to fresh jalapenos and barbeque sauce. At Five Guys, all food is freshly prepared and made to order, such as the award-winning fries that are hand-cut and expertly cooked in 100% pure peanut oil.
Hamad Al Sayer, CEO, Al Sayer Franchising, and the local partner for Five Guys, comments: “Our first store opening in Al Tijaria Tower in Kuwait City represents the first step in our planned country-wide rollout, with two other confirmed locations in the pipeline for Kuwait and one for Oman. We are really looking forward to bringing the Five Guys experience to subsequent locations in Kuwait over the months ahead.”
