Dubai, 23 December, 2021 – talabat, the region’s leading online food delivery and q-commerce platform, is now delivering from ALBAIK, Saudi Arabia’s leading chicken and seafood quick service chain. As ALBAIK’s preferred food delivery partner in the UAE, talabat will be delivering from ALBAIK’s Dubai Mall branch to 29 adjacent areas in Dubai.
The partnership with ALBAIK is part of talabat’s mission to bring loved brands closer to people, while continuing to offer convenience, speed and choice to customers with over 15,000 restaurant partners on the platform across all seven emirates.
The Saudi brand delivers to its customers more than just the satiating fried chicken it is famous for, but also a wide selection of seafood, grilled dishes and side dishes, as well as vegetarian options. Since its launch on the talabat app, some of ALBAIK’s most ordered dishes included the Chicken Nuggets Meal, ALBAIK Chicken Meal, Double BAIK Burger and the Chicken Fillet Sandwich.
Tatiana Rahal, Managing Director at talabat UAE: “We’re happy to bring ALBAIK even closer to customers in the UAE who have been waiting eagerly to be able to order-in one of their most loved brands in the region. ALBAIK is much more than a popular and loved Saudi food brand, it is one that tells the success story of a homegrown, GCC brand – a story we relate to at talabat, having ourselves started as a startup in Kuwait. We are proud to be able to support brands that are born and bred in the region and we look forward to strengthening and expanding our partnership with ALBAIK as their preferred delivery partner in the UAE.”
Commenting on the announcement, Yazan Malhis, the General Manager at ALBAIK Food Services, said: “People have been messaging us on our social media channels for years to open ALBAIK in the UAE, so we were very excited to finally open our doors in Dubai earlier this year and very grateful for the warm welcome we received. Due to the successful launch, as well as high demand from customers for delivery, we are thrilled to announce talabat as our delivery partner, and to share their expertise in the field so our customers have a great ALBAIK experience whether they opt to dine-in or to order from to their office or from the comfort of their home.”
Karim Hajjali, Chief Executive Officer at ServQuest, added: “As ALBAIK’s official licensee in the UAE, we are proud to be part of their regional expansion, which started in Dubai where we launched ALBAIK’s first branch in Dubai Mall earlier in June 2021 and then later in October this year, opened ALBAIK’s doors to millions of visitors from across the world at Expo 2020 Dubai. ServQuest was formed with the aim of operating and expanding ALBAIK across the seven emirates and we look forward to continuing ALBAIK’s growth in 2022, reaching customers across the UAE with the support of our delivery partner talabat.”
