15 New Perky’s Pizza Locations in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as Part of Agreement to Further Develop the Brand
Mr. Majed Al-Hokair, Vice Chairman of the Board/Al-Hokair Group and Mr. Jim Howell, President of Perky’s Pizza 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, Mr. 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.
Mr. Howell also toured the Al-Hokair Institute. The Institute is a comprehensive education facility founded and operated by the Al-Hokair Group. They conduct educational classes in every aspect of service, hospitality and food service. Mr. Howell said, “It is a very impressive operation and top notch education facility with state of the art equipment and learning labs. It is much like Johnson and Wales here in the USA.”
Howell added, “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.”

While there is much discussion about how quickly food and beverage sales are coming back at amusement parks practically everyone agrees that pizza is a must have menu item in any amusement facility.
With slow increases in attendance and recovering sales it is critical to offer a menu items that have a wide appeal to different age groups. Pizza is of course the perfect fit because it can be vegetarian, have meat toppings, work for toddlers, their parents, grandparents and everyone in between.
Citing the article from March 24, 2012 in theparkpost.com 80% of amusement park visitors attend in groups of 3 or more people. For convenience sake what food is easier to feed a group of people than pizza?
With regards to quality, you are always better with a quality product that your guests will remember. It is obvious that if you offer food that customers really enjoy rather than just settle for your customers will buy more. The foodservice goal in this kind of venue is really to offer good food that generates goodwill and sales, making it an integral part of the overall customer experience. Pizza should be a source of pride and quality for your venue. From an operators perspective it should be quick and consistent to prepare, which is not difficult with our proven pizza system over the last 25 years. In order to appeal to your broadest range of customers it should be a flexible, quality product. Perky’s Pizza fits this bill perfectly for amusement venues.
