Overcoming challenges are what successful entrepreneurs are all about, and Waleed has already proved to be extremely adept at this. Not only has he introduced the idea of fast food into an untried market, he has also fought off competition from the multi national brand names.

While studying in the USA , Waleed covered the cost of his tuition fees by working in a leading fast food chain. During this time, Waleed gained an invaluable insight into a thriving industry, and was promoted several times until he became a manager.

Inspired by this experience, he decided to research the potential for fast food on his return to Oman . Waleed’s vision to start his own business, and the first independent fast food outlet of its kind in Oman , became a reality in 2003 with the launch of Al Wally’s.

Al Wally’s mouth watering fast food formula of burgers, hot dogs, salads, fish, chicken and fries has proved to be extremely popular, attracting a growing number of customers. Its growing reputation for providing delicious, high quality fast food with exceptional service has also been recognised by receiving several prestigious awards.

The business has come a long way in a short time. Al Wally’s has expanded to include three outlets, with another two due to open soon, and the company has grown to achieve a turnover of over 340,000 USD and to employ 24 staff.

Inspired by his success to date, Waleed is aiming to grow the business further with ambitions to franchise it throughout the Middle East, and ultimately to create a global brand. That’s why he’s just turned down a bid of over 645,000 USD to buy him out.
