RIKAS Hospitality announces expansion into Saudi market

Firm notes that it has tested the waters with popups in the past and has experienced significant success

RIKAS Hospitality has signed agreements to operate multiple restaurants in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The group says it is well positioned for expansion into KSA following its establishment as a key player in the hospitality and dining scene in the UAE.

Owned by entrepreneur Rizwan Kassim, RIKAS Group has launched several culinary projects in the region including La Cantine du Faubourg, Ninive, Mimi Kakushi, Twiggy by La Cantine, Lana Lusa, Madeleine et Marcel and Gohan.

London interior architecture studio Pirajean Lees, led by Clemence Pirajean and James Michael Lees, collaborated with branding agency AM Studioworks to design all the venues, a statement from the firm said.

“This move is in line with our aggressive growth strategy, and we are very excited to have found homes for our award-winning concepts in the Kingdom. We have had a number of very successful popups in the past and the response has been overwhelming, so it is a natural progression, and we look forward to our much-awaited debut in the Saudi scene,” says Kassim.

The group concluded by saying it is committed to elevating the hospitality experience across its portfolio.
