Opening a Restaurant Business in Dubai

The global appetite for dining out remains insatiable, with the restaurant industry continuously thriving despite economic fluctuations worldwide. The restaurant market is booming in Dubai, where culinary experiences are a significant part of the vibrant lifestyle. Recent data values the UAE’s restaurant industry at approximately USD 3.3 billion, with various segments contributing to its robust growth.

Navigating the formation process is essential for entrepreneurs eyeing opportunities in Dubai’s bustling restaurant scene. NH Management sheds light on the crucial steps involved:

Obtaining Licenses: Entrepreneurs must secure two licenses – a trade license and a food license. While the former can be acquired through the Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED) or a free zone, the latter requires approval from the Dubai Municipality Food Safety Department.

Compliance with Food Code: Adhering to the Food Code is imperative for maintaining the validity of the food license. This code encompasses various food preparation, hygiene, and safety standards.

Application Process: From outlining business activities to selecting a company name, meticulous attention to detail is crucial during the application process. Working with NH Management ensures a smooth and error-free application submission.
