For the past 10 years ALBAIK has been on site at Mina serving the Hajj pilgrims by setting up outlets in locations convenient to the Kingdom’s guests visiting the Holy Shrines.  ALBAIK, the Kingdom’s favorite chicken and seafood restaurant chain, has three fully operating outlets in Mina, one of which is considered the world’s largest quick service preparation kitchen facility.

“It is our honor to serve the pilgrims coming to the Kingdom to perform Hajj and it is our duty to ensure that our guests return home from the most important journey of their lives with a lasting memory of true and traditional Saudi hospitality,” said Eng. Rami Abu Ghazaleh, CEO of ALBAIK Foods Systems Ltd.“

ALBAIK’S restaurants in the Holy City of Makkah are operational for a period of five days during the Hajj season only and the project is a non-profit venture for the benefit of the Hajj pilgrims and the support of charity programs.

The main facility is located in an area parallel to the Jamarat bridge at Mina, Constructed at a cost of more than SR 4 million, the restaurant is designed to serve 250,000 meals daily with a team of more than 400 employees on site preparing meals of the highest quality which includes fillet pieces of chicken nuggets, chicken burgers and sandwiches, all with the favorite ALBAIK signature flavor.   

High quality, cleanliness, quick service and value for money are the most important elements in the ALBAIK’s operational philosophy, which is based not on profit, but on virtue, religious principles and patriotic commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
