Bay Street Shopping Complex will soon welcome a new addition to its food and beverage offering – the Rainforst Cafe which forms part of the international franchise also located in London, Tokyo, Niagara Falls and Paris.
Set to open its doors in July, Albert Galea, CEO of Bay Street Group, commented on the new addition, saying “Our aim at Bay Street is to create an exceptional customer experience through a one-stop destination for quality dining, shopping, hospitality, leisure, business and services.”
“The opening of Rainforest Cafe will continue to add to this holistic customer experience, making each visit to our shopping complex a memorable one.”
The franchise will also be opening a new cafe in the United Arab Emirates, bringing its total number of locations around the world, including Malta, up to 20.
“It is wonderful to see the expansion of the Rainforest Cafe franchise arrive on the island of Malta. Our franchise has now expanded to seven countries with over 20 restaurants across the globe,” said Jarrett Ingram, Director of International Operations and Franchising of Landry’s, the franchise’s parent company. “New destinations mean new experiences and we truly hope that all future visitors in Malta will enjoy this tropical adventure.”
Local actress, TV presenter and producer Clare Agius has been announced as the ambassador of the Malta cafe, describing it “as a fun and educational way to spend time with the family. Children and adults alike can enjoy a delicious meal while immersed in a tropical forest ambiance.”
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
The company, set to launch soon, will seek to provide clients with ‘customer-centric and innovative’ financial services.
The Malta Stock Exchange recently joined other exchanges for the inaugural Ring the Bell for Climate initiative.
Family businesses account for more than 70% of Malta’s SMEs, and are hence vital components of the local economy.
