Increased health awareness has led to a range of healthy meal plan delivery players in the United Arab Emirates. These players started off with a subscription model and moved into other foodservice formats; notable examples include Kcal and Right Bite.
During 2016/2017, some popular brands closed underperforming outlets to maintain their operational efficiency. Players in burger fast food, such as Burger Fuel and Elevation Burger, closed outlets due to stronger competition and lower demand.
Asian fast food players have been at the forefront of offering meal deals to remain price-competitive. For example, Panda Chinese offers a range of combo meals with a choice of three items from the menu and one soft drink.
Emirates Fast Food Co, holding the franchise rights for McDonald’s in the United Arab Emirates, led fast food in value terms in 2017. The burger fast food chain also saw growth following impressive outlet expansion during 2016 and 2017.
Most fast food players are facing operational challenges, such as increased rental costs, macroeconomic factors and changing consumer lifestyles in the country; particularly healthier eating. This has dampened the growth of fast food in the country, and the environment is very competitive.
Fast food has been impacted by the growth of third party delivery platforms, which are widely used in the country. These are providing other foodservice channels, such full-service restaurants and cafés, with the opportunity to offer food through delivery at equal or better service levels than fast food brands with independent delivery.
