Cairo – January 2020:
Delicious Inc. and Baraka Retail Group (BRG) announced a new partnership that will see the BRG group expand its portfolio into the Food and Beverage (F&B) sector and would see Cilantro Cafe expand further in malls all over Egypt.

The first store in this partnership opened in Cairo Festival City Mall “CFC” in Dec 2019 with the new enhanced Cilantro experience reflected in a modern store with a trendy, cosy yet elegant interior which caters to the needs of Cilantro’s various customer profiles. The new experience also offers an innovatively engineered menu that caters to the different customer preferences with a special focus on fresh and natural items as well as many options for indulgence.
