Harry’s opens for business in Doha

Iconic British brand, Harry Ramsden’s, has opened its first overseas outlet in over a decade.

The glittering launch event was hosted by Mr Ahmed Hassan Bilal, Chairman of AHB Trading and Contracting Company which holds the Qatar franchise and was attended by prominent dignitaries from Doha, Qatar and influential business leaders including Mr Hussain Ibrahim Alfardan, Chairman of the Alfardan Group, one of the most successful family-owned conglomerates in the Arabian Gulf.

To celebrate the official opening of new Harry Ramsden’s at the luxurious Pearl development in Doha, guests at the 100 cover restaurant enjoyed an array of items from the wide ranging Harry Ramsden’s menu, including the fish and chips for which the brand is world famous.

Harry Ramsden’s CEO Joe Teixeira also attended the opening event in Doha and commented: “We are delighted that Harry Ramsden’s first overseas outlet in over ten years has now officially opened. As our brand continues to go from strength to strength in the UK as a result of our successful repositioning, we are now turning our attention further afield. With the master franchises for Qatar and Saudi Arabia signed, further openings are imminent. Currently, we are also in talks with various international parties so we anticipate new Harry Ramsden’s outlets opening in different parts of the world, in the not too distant future.”
