Authentic Italian coffee and cuisine opening in The Outlet Village, following Ca’puccino launches in London’s Harrods department store and Heathrow Airport Terminal 2
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 22 January 2017: Ca’puccino is to make its UAE debut at the Outlet Village in Jebel Ali, with an elegant coffee house and kitchen that has been launched by Dubai’s Marka PJSC in partnership with Ca’puccino’s founder, Giacomo Moncalvo.
Providing a culinary trip around the regions of Italy, the ‘Fresh, Healthy, Italian’ menu features high quality Italian ingredients including burrata cheese from the Apulia region and Fassona beef from Piedmont, and a range of deliciously Italian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ca’puccino features a thoroughly elegant ambience — well suited to its new home in the recently opened Outlet Village in Jebel Ali, whose iconic design takes inspiration from the spectacular Tuscan hilltop town of San Gimignano in Italy. Combining this Tuscan inspired design with its own Italian heritage, Ca’puccino offers an honest ‘made in Italy’ experience right on Dubai’s doorstep.
Khaled Al Mheiri, Vice Chairman and CEO Commented: “The demand for casual dining concepts in the UAE continues to grow, making Ca’puccino the perfect fit for residents and visitors to Dubai who have a deep appreciation for all things Italian. With two more outlets in the pipeline for 2017, Ca’puccino is sure to become a firm favorite for those keen to take a trip to Italy with us.”
Giacomo Moncalvo, CEO of Ca’puccino added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Marka and to be bringing Ca’puccino to the UAE. Since 2006 it has been our mission to spread our passion for authentic Italian cuisine and share it with the world, and this is a great milestone in achieving this ambition. We are excited to see it become one of Dubai’s favorite relaxation spots – we encourage diners to take advantage of the spacious terrace and indulge in a spot of true Italian lifestyle.”
Ca’puccino’s story began in 2006, when it first launched in the Barberino Designer Outlet near Florence. Today, there are 10 Ca’puccino stores in Italy and five in the UK, including locations in the Harrods department store and Heathrow airport Terminal 2 in London. The latest Ca’puccino will have a total seating capacity of 126 covers, with 80 seats inside and 46 on the spacious terrace.
