Egyptian street food is popular, with small carts scattered all over the busy streets of Cairo, selling traditional local food such as foul, falafel sandwiches and koshari. Whilst these concepts are likely to remain an important part of the street food business, the channel is evolving into trendy street stalls/kiosks selling a much wider variety of products and to different target consumers.
Summer provided a much-needed boost for street stalls/ kiosks. Domestic tourism increased in July, August and September, meaning many of the popular tourist areas and streets were busy, with some witnessing close to pre-pandemic levels of traffic.
KamiKatsu, a Japanese food truck concept, opened during the summer on the Egyptian north coast. The concept proved most popular and was well received by Egyptian consumers, so much so that the entrepreneurs behind the concept opened a second food truck in a prime location in Cairo later in the year.
Street stalls/kiosks is expected to record strong double-digit value growth in 2022, followed by good single-digit rates over the remainder of the forecast period. Value sales will exceed pre-pandemic levels in 2022, much earlier than other consumer foodservice channels in the country.
Street stalls/kiosks offer attractive, low-priced options to manual workers for lunch or a quick snack. As employees return to work these outlets are set to benefit from their attractive prices, leading to strong growth in the number of transactions over the forecast period.
Some local street stalls/kiosks such as Hamada Sheraton and Amo Hosny were able to grow into multiple-outlet operations in Cairo over the review period. Following their lead, trendy start-ups looked to expand their operations into catering and delivery services – for example, Sushi Bike and Shocks Burger.

Small, sometimes mobile, foodservice providers characterised by a limited product offering and by low prices.

Also includes kiosks and carts located externally or internally eg in shopping malls etc. As a rule, street stalls/kiosks outlets tend to be smaller than 100% home delivery/takeaway outlets, while menus are more limited, often (though certainly not always) with a greater emphasis on snack items, rather than full meals.See All of Our Definitions
