Jones the Grocer, the popular Australian gourmet grocer and cafe, has opened its much-awaited Jones the Grocer Express in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) by the UAE-based BDC Holdings.

The gourmet grab-and-go concept has expanded its made-from-scratch, fresh, and exquisite artisan gourmet products to the business hub in DIFC after witnessing major success at Dubai International Airport (DXB). The latest franchise of Jones the Grocer Express is located in Gate Building 5, on Level 2 in DIFC.

Jones the Grocer Express offers the perfect spot for busy professionals to indulge in great food and conversation at the city’s most prominent business location. The venue gives DIFC professionals a chance to pull up a seat in their co-working setting while relishing scrumptious gourmet meals, grab delectable bites on the go, or just sit back and relax with colleagues or friends in the cafe’s dining area.
