“From our early discussions about bringing Black Tap to Kuwait, we were confident residents would love our crazy shakes, craft burgers and urban vibe,” said Antonio Gonzalez, Sunset Group CEO – the Black Tap franchise owners in the Middle East and Europe. “In coordination with our Kuwaiti partners at Tamdeen Food Company, we identified a new location in 360 Mall that will further enrich and expand Black Tap’s success story in Kuwait.”
Black Tap’s cool, street-themed vibe is renowned for permeating the interior design, character and set-up of every single outlet. That history will be amplified in Black Tap’s 360 Mall outlet, where renowned graffiti artist, Fumero - a long-time Black Tap creative partner in the US - will create a signature wall mural, his first in the Middle East. Fumero will use his unique street art creation - dubbed Fumeroism - to promote family dining. “After all, the family that eats together stays together,” said Fumero.
Having overseen the arrival of Black Tap in Kuwait City, Muath B. Al Roumi, General Manager – Group Marketing, Tamdeen Group, believes the new venue that has launched at 360 Mall – located in Al Zahra area - will further cement the brand’s crowd-favourite reputation amongst the country’s discerning diners.
“Tamdeen Group’s relationship with Black Tap continues our rich history of shaping the consumer-lifestyle landscape in Kuwait through careful selection and management of world-renowned retail and F&B franchises,” said Al Roumi.
The new Black Tap outlet at 360 Mall, which is now open to the public, will feature a host of never-seen-before features in Kuwait, so watch this space!
