SERVAIR opens the first BURGER KING® brand restaurant in Kenya
Servair, French and African leader and 4th largest global player in the airline catering and logistics business, announces the opening of the first BURGER KING® brand restaurant in Kenya, at The Hub Mall located on Dagoretti Road in Karen, Nairobi.
NAS Servair is the concessionaire for the operation and management of this restaurant, which spans 450 m2 and recruited 40 team members for its opening.
This is the first BURGER KING® brand restaurant opened by Servair in Kenya, following the opening of two restaurants in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire in December 2015 and April 2016.
Established in Africa since 1989 and in Kenya since 2010, after becoming the majority shareholder of NAS, the Servair Group has gradually emerged as a major player in airline catering on the continent. With 21 units in 2016, Servair is now the leading caterer in Africa where it employs 3,250 people.
Today’s opening of a new BURGER KING® brand restaurant in a shopping mall is part of Servair's development strategy, through which it aims to expand its service offerings.
“The agreement we have initiated with the BURGER KING® brand is an important growth driver for both businesses,” said Michel Emeyriat, Chairman and CEO of Servair. “With our recognized culinary expertise and ability to operate outside the airline industry, we look forward to opening this BURGER KING® brand restaurant in Kenya and furthering its position on the African continent.”
