Jumeirah Restaurant Chain Urbano to Expand in Middle East

Good news for foodies in the Middle East: Urbano, the Italian restaurant from the Jumeirah group, is to open in Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Turkey under two new franchise agreements, according to Hotelier Middle East.

The first Urbano in Bahrain will open in Seef District late this year. In Turkey, Jumeirah Restaurants signed with BCF Group to open the Urbano restaurant in Aqua Florya Mall. The restaurant is scheduled to open in October.

Dubai’s Souk Al Bahr-based Urbano is the second restaurant concept developed by Jumeirah Restaurants to gain international awareness.

Starting out as a UAE home-grown brand in 2002, the noodle house is currently operational in 13 countries and is set to enter Russia, Lebanon, Great Britain, Morocco and Bahrain in the coming months.
