How to Start Restaurant Business in Dubai, UAE?

At the very outset one has to understand that Dubai has devised a system called ‘Food Code’ for different categories of food businesses. Restaurants, cafeterias and cafes belong to a certain category and therefore reflect a particular food code. Some of the other food businesses which require this tagging system are mentioned below.

• Restaurants built within supermarkets, grocery stores or malls.

• Mobile food providers / Kiosk vendors.

• Food business within educational institutions and hospitals.

• Bakeries and confectioners.

To start restaurant business in UAE or Dubai the entrepreneur needs to decide on the type of the food business this entity intends to set up, and obtain a relevant food code.  The next step is to get a trade license.

Trade license for restaurant in Dubai is obtained through the Department of Economic Development (DED). As mentioned above the entrepreneur also needs to narrow down the category of food joint because the license mentions the relevant code. To start restaurant business in Dubai this step is mandatory. Therefore, it is suggested to fine tune the aspirations and not rush into multiple food codes

Entrepreneur can then start developing/constructing the restaurant as per specified rules laid out by the Food Control Department of Dubai. Some of the important decrees to open a restaurant in Dubai include a space/distance of at least thirty meters between the proposed restaurant and the waste disposal hubs. This is typically demanded so that the food is not contaminated in any way. Yet another area which can terminate the proposed project is by not adhering to the drainage system rules and prerequisites. Therefore, the design and development team must religiously follow every rule of Food Control Department.
