Executive Summary

Jun 2019
PROSPECTS
Innovative coffee concepts changing the coffee shop channel

Saudi Arabians are well known for their passion for coffee, since it is part of their culture and they really pride themselves in the making of their own coffee – with this culture not only famous in Saudi Arabia but across the Gulf countries. For visitors to Saudi Arabia the first thing they are likely to be offered is Arabic coffee, served in traditional pots and small cups, refillable every time the cup is about to be finished.

Chained cafés seeing strong growth

Saudi Arabia saw a lot of cultural and social changes in 2018, compared to the restrictive environment that Saudi Arabians were used to living in, with the country witnessing an evolution and transformation of the traditional lifestyle. For example, a lot of entertainment activities are now available with only limited restrictions, such as concerts now allowing access to both men and women.

Juice/smoothie bars still maintaining healthy growth

Due to the hot climate in Saudi Arabia, juice/smoothie bars will remain a strong channel in the foodservice market as a lot of people just stop anywhere and grab a cup of juice or a smoothie in their favourite flavour. More brands are being established on a monthly basis, offering different concepts and services.
