Baskin-Robbins, chain of ice cream specialty shops, and master licensee Galadari Ice Cream Company officially opened the doors to its 1,000th store in the Region at Dubai Hills Mall on March 10. The brand marked this historic milestone with a ribbon cutting celebration at Dubai Hills Mall and public ice cream party at Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel, which featured free ice cream for the first 1,000 guests, fun games, sweet prizes, and a special appearance by the UAE radio personality Priti Malik.

As part of the month-long celebration, Baskin-Robbins will be offering a special promotion where guests who purchase a Double Medium Sundae will get a free Kids Scoop through March 30, 2022, allowing guests to enjoy their favourite flavours and discover new ones all month long. 

“Since opening our first shop in the UAE in 1979, Baskin-Robbins has been an ice cream leader in the Region, helping guests discover the joy of a life lived with variety,” said Michael Haley, President and Managing Director of International for Inspire Brands. “An outstanding operator with a legacy of business success, Galadari is a true global champion of the Baskin-Robbins brand, and together we look forward to igniting the next chapter of brand growth.”

The brand scoops happiness in the form of cups, cones, sundaes, beverages, and cakes in a wide variety of flavours, from regional bestsellers like Pralines N’ Cream and Cotton Candy, to innovative creations like the new Toffee Date Pudding sundae.

“I want to thank all the team members at Galadari Brothers, Baskin-Robbins, and Inspire Brands that have tirelessly worked together in order for us to reach this milestone,” said Suhail Galadari, Co-chairman of Galadari Brothers. “Baskin-Robbins has truly made an impact on the F&B scene in the UAE and the Region, and we are proud to be a part of their success story. This achievement has inspired us to work even harder and take the brand to greater heights. To fans of the beloved ice cream brand, I say that there will be no shortage of special moments that are spent over a scoop of their favourite ice cream flavour.” 

“As we celebrate the opening of our 1,000th Baskin-Robbins location, I could not be more proud of the strong ice cream business we have built across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Morocco, Jordan and Australia,” said Ahmed Osman, Chief Executive Officer of Galadari Ice Cream Company. “Thank you to the millions of guests across the Region who have made Baskin-Robbins a flavourful moment in their everyday lives. We look forward to continuing to serve you across our 1,000 shops, and to bringing Baskin-Robbins premium ice cream and experience to new cities and guests in the years to come.”
