Meraas will feed Dubai’s appetite for more food truck centres in the hope that it will support the emirate’s tourism ambitions.
In the next six months, the parent of theme parks operator Dubai Parks and Resorts said it plans to open nine more Last Exit destinations that would feature between 20 and 40 food trucks at each location, open throughout the day all week, aimed at commuters, families and tourists.
Meraas opened the first Last Exit in July on Exit 11 on Sheikh Zayed Road between Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi. The 15,000 square metres site has 17 outlets.
It declined to give the cost of the expansion.
Each of the stops will have its own design and will be permanent, similar to the first destination, according to Meraas.
The locations include another on Sheikh Zayed Road across from the first project, two on Al Ain Road, one each in Hatta and Al Khawaneej, one on Mohammed bin Zayed Road, two on Emirates Road and one on Al Qudra Road. More info
