Leading boutique hospitality group, The Hush Collection, led by Jamie Barber and Ed Standring, has announced that construction has commenced on the second international Cabana in Saudi Arabia.
Its first international franchise partner, the multi-brand hospitality and entertainment business, Innovative Union Company, is committed to open five Cabana restaurants over the next 10 years in Saudi Arabia. The first opened in August 2021 in the Nakheel Mall in Riyadh with the second due to open in Riyadh’s Sikha District in September 2022.
The 2,700 sq ft site, with the addition of an expansive 2,440 sq ft barbecue terrace, has been designed to reflect the décor of its London counterparts. Vibrant colours and varied textures will feature alongside an abundance of foliage and greenery, with neon lights and artwork adorning the walls. Similarly, the menu will showcase Cabana’s signature dishes including those featuring the brand’s Spicy Malagueta sauce, alongside new menu innovations including Latin-inspired burgers, flatbreads, hot pots and salads.
Ed Standring, CEO, The Hush Collection said: “We have a growing international strategy for Cabana’s ‘espirito amazonico’ in the Middle East and are actively looking to sign new territories such as the UAE. Following a large capital investment in the London restaurants post-Covid, including new menu and graphic development, tableware, music and uniforms, the brand has experienced strong growth and the response to the opening of our first Saudi Cabana has exceeded all expectations. It’s an incredibly exciting time for Cabana as we look to grow our footprint overseas.”
