Bringing Doors to Dubai

During a business trip to China, Chairman Mr. Babu found himself in the vibrant city of Guangzhou. Seeking an exquisite dining experience, he was drawn to Doors Freestyle Grill, an establishment that promised not just a meal but a culinary adventure. As he indulged in the flavors and ambiance of the restaurant, Mr. Babu couldn’t help but be impressed by the culinary mastery on display.

Upon finishing his delightful dinner, Mr. Babu felt compelled to express his admiration directly to the genius behind the gastronomic creations, Chef Kemal Ceylan. With genuine enthusiasm, he approached the chef and engaged in a conversation that went beyond the ordinary. The two shared insights into their passion for fine dining and the art of creating memorable culinary experiences.

As the night unfolded, the idea of expanding Doors Freestyle Grill to Dubai surfaced in their discussion. Mr. Babu, captivated by the restaurant’s unique concept, proposed the idea of a franchise in the bustling city of Dubai. Chef Kemal, equally intrigued by the prospect, saw this as an exciting opportunity to showcase his culinary expertise to a new audience.

In the following months, negotiations and planning ensued. The collaboration between Mr. Babu and Chef Kemal paved the way for a new chapter in the history of Doors Freestyle Grill. The vision of bringing the extraordinary dining experience from Guangzhou to Dubai began to take shape, promising to elevate the culinary landscape in the vibrant city. This chance encounter between a chairman seeking excellence and a chef passionate about his craft led to the birth of a franchise that would soon enchant the taste buds of Dubai’s discerning diners.
