Majed Al-Hokair, vice chairman of the board for the Al-Hokair Group, and Jim Howell, president of Perky's Pizza, have signed an agreement to further develop the Perky's Pizza brand in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates by adding 15 new locations between the two countries.
On his recent visit to Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E, Howell toured the existing Perky's Pizza locations in Riyadh and met with the Perky's Pizza Task Force to discuss the operations, training and marketing efforts for the future locations.
"The Middle East is a dynamic market. We are fortunate to partner with the top hospitality brand in the region. Our relationship with the Al-Hokair Group goes back over 15 years. We are so impressed with their overall operations; we have agreed to allow them to develop the Perky's Pizza brand in the entire MENA Region," Howell said.
