"Cibus is fortunate to be working with great partners at Food Fabulous in Doha," said Stephanie Flanders-Martin, VP of Business Services. "We have been working diligently to prepare for this exciting growth opportunity. Doha is a great place for Spicy Pickle expansion. This development has accelerated existing interest throughout the Middle East region. Although international development is challenging, our team has experience with brand expansion." Spicy Pickle's team worked closely with our Qatar development partners to adjust the menu to ensure compliance with halal foods under Islamic dietary guidelines.
Salma Maher, the new Spicy Pickle franchise developer, is a resident of Qatar and knows the nation well. "With the ongoing growth surge in the State and the awarding of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Qatar's consumer outlook remains positive over the next ten years. We selected Spicy Pickle after careful market survey knowing it is a brand that offers a lot behind its name and will deliver to a market that is rapidly growing like Qatar," said Ms. Maher. "We are pleased that our first Spicy Pickle is now open at The Gate".
