Infracorp, a company specialized in investing in the infrastructure and sustainability development sector, has signed an agreement with Azumi Limited, the award-winning global restaurant group, to open the first branch of ROKA, the contemporary Japanese robatayaki concept, in the Kingdom at Bahrain Harbour.
The partnership agreement was signed by Mr. Majed Al Khan, CEO of Infracorp, and Mr. Rainer Becker, Creator and Co-Founder of Azumi Ltd., in the presence of several representatives from both sides.
The agreement comes as part of Infracorp’s efforts to expand its hospitality portfolio with prestigious international brands, in accordance with the company’s mission to contribute towards the development of the national economy as well as support vital economic sectors, particularly the tourism sector and the growth of the hospitality sector in the country.
“We are delighted to sign this partnership with a regional leader in the hospitality sector and host one of the most renowned Japanese restaurants in the region and the world at Bahrain Harbour. The agreement is in line with our vision to be the most versatile and prestigious hospitality destination in the Kingdom in the near future.”
Mr. Rainer Becker commented on the agreement that “we are delighted to join forces with Infracorp and launch Roka in the Kingdom. We are confident that the restaurant will complement the already thriving market and have great success in the years to come.”
Mr. Becker, who is also the mastermind behind Zuma, the international contemporary Japanese restaurant brand, recognised the huge popularity of robatayaki cuisine and launched Roka Charlotte Street, London, in 2004, shortly after Zuma. Since then, Roka has expanded to eight permanent locations and one seasonal location, including Dubai and Istanbul.
