Simba Corporation has announced plans to set up a new restaurant in Westlands, Nairobi – come September. The move comes as the firm plans to expand this business model across the region.
The eatery will be located on Westlands Mpaka Road. It will incorporate 11 different cuisines, which highlights the firm’s commitment in tapping into the local’s growing appetite for international cuisine.
It is not clear the amount of money the firm has invested in the new venture, which will expand its local hospitality portfolio.
“The rise of ‘food halls’ in US, UK and Asia is a major inspiration to this project. We want to be trend setters in the F & B (food and beverage) industry. Like New York, London and Hong Kong, Kenya should and can develop F & B concepts with the same level of innovation and creativity,” said Alyana Popat, Simba Corp’s hospitality marketing manager.
Some of the cuisines the restaurant will have include; Portuguese, Indian and Italian. The eatery will also have an outlet that will exclusively be serving wine.
“This project will be something unique to Kenya….Nothing if its kind has ever been developed in this part of the world. It’s going to give Kenyans international experiences. Work has already started and we may open earlier than the target date.” she said.
This latest project will follow the first stand-alone project Barista Lounge, at Simba Corp Aspire centre, which was unveiled recently.
