Baguette Express, one of Scotland and UK’s fast growing retail-based food franchises, last evening celebrated the opening of its third store in Dubai. The restaurant specializes in providing unlimited fillings that can be stuffed into Baguettes, Paninis, Wraps and Sandwiches. The restaurant also offers fresh pastas, salads and soups to quell hunger pangs all day long.
The franchise has been introduced in the UAE by Galaxy Food Concepts, a new venture by leading consumer electronics distributor – EROS GROUP. Speaking at the evening celebration Deepak Babani, CEO, Eros Group said, “The food business was always an interesting venture and we felt it was the right time to implement our diversification plans. Baguette Express was the right fit for us and we intend to take the brand to all parts of the UAE and establish Galaxy Food Concepts as a ideal partner in the food and quick service restaurant business.”
The new store is conveniently located at Emaar Business Park in Dubai in close proximity to one of Dubai fastest growing commercial and residential areas. The new restaurant will cater to hungry customers in Media City, JLT, TECOM and also Emaar Business Park. Residents can also enjoy the new restaurant’s tastes with delivery services in The Greens, The Springs, Emirates Hills and The Lakes.

We let the customer make his / her own meal by choosing various fillings, veggies and sauces. We are guided by the high international standards set by Baguette Express in sourcing the freshest ingredients to make our meals affordable and tasty.”
