President's message


“Welcome to Qoot’s Restaurants and Coffee Shops Association. It is my pleasure to welcome you the association’s website that we are launching today as a means of connecting investors and employers within the restaurants and cafes sector. We seek to reach the largest possible segment of those who are interested in becoming part of enhancing this sector within the Kingdom. As an association we aim to support the restaurants and cafes sector and those influenced by it through launching a number of initiatives and programs in cooperation with government entities that related to this sectors’s growth and sustainability.

We established the association since the late of 2018 by bringing together sector leaders representing large restaurants and cafes to initiate the development of the association that focuses on supporting and evolving the sector within the kingdom of Saudi Arabia based on business excellence and innovation under the umbrella of ‘Qoot Association’.

The association was formalised by the Ministry of Labor and Social Development under a licence number (941) for the year 2018. As it has been established the association is keen on working on initiatives to upgrade the sector of restaurant and cafes, it employers and those who are interested in seeking assistance to be part of building this sector in Saudi Arabia.
Welcome once more to our website, we welcome any ideas, suggestions or inputs to help us enrich the association and develop the sector.”
