At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Egyptian government issued a statement banning shisha from all cafés and bars. During the review period, smoking shisha in bars was quite popular among the local population.
Bars and pubs were among the worst affected by COVID-19 related restrictions. As they are generally open later at night, the imposition of a curfew affected opening hours, while consumers generally preferred avoiding enclosed and crowded places.
Independent cafés/bars remain the most popular in Egypt. Unlike other foodservice channels where bigger brands and international chains dominate, in cafés/bars it is local and independent cafés that do.
In Egypt urbanisation is growing at a rapid rate. The government has several urban development projects, such as in Damietta, El Alamein and Al Galala City, a planned city in northeast Egypt.
Starbucks (Starbucks Corp) is set to remain the leading operator of cafés/bars in Egypt, closely followed by Cilantro (Delicious Inc). These cafés serve a variety of food and beverages with good prices, as well as offering a warm environment and good locations.
In the forecast period Egypt will be host to many international events, such as sports tournaments and film festivals. This will likely lead international brands to open new branches in Egypt.
