According to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Consul General Paul Raymund P. Cortes led the opening of Pancake House on October 24 and Bench on October 26. The opening of the top Pinoy brands comes at the heels of Dubai’s hosting of The Global Franchise Market which will be held at the World Trade Center later this month.

With about 550,000 Filipinos working and living in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, Dubai is the top favorite destination of many Pinoy brands to set up shop in the UAE. Aside from Bench and Pancake House, Jollibee, Max’s, Barrio Fiesta and other Filipino franchises have already established their presence in the area.
