Duck Donuts officially landed in Egypt Friday, Feb. 10. The shop is in Cairo Festival City Mall. Duck Donuts CEO Betsy Hamm and franchise partners, Integrated Food Services, commemorated the milestone opening of its Cairo location on Feb. 4.
This is the first Duck Donuts shop for Ahmed Ihab, managing partner of Integrated Food Services and pioneer in the retail industry. The second location will also be in the heart of Cairo and expected to open second half of 2023.
“This grand opening is the beginning of a long journey to introduce the Duck Donuts brand throughout every district in Egypt,” said Ihab.
The store reflects a modernized and inviting family-friendly atmosphere theme, complete with indoor seating. The shop offers a viewing area where children and adults alike can watch their donuts being made and photo opportunities throughout with the brand’s lovable duck mascot, Ollie.
In addition to donuts, the Cairo location also serves high-end coffee, espresso, donut sundaes, breakfast sandwiches, milkshakes, frozen beverages, select retail items and more. Guests will experience the same made-to-order donut process and availability of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including traditional favorites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with beef bacon. By summer, the shop will expand its menu to include local flavors such as mango.
