Herfy Food Services Company
More than 37 years serving the nation

For over 37 years, the name Herfy has become synonymous with world-class Saudi quality, entrepreneurship and innovation. It is one of today’s leading Arab companies, with a successful reputation built on its market-leading restaurant, bakeries and meat-processing businesses.

The company was co-founded in 1981 by Mr. Ahmed Al-Said who had just returned from his studies in the United States, driven by a vision of the future inspired by the fast food craze then sweeping the world. In partnership with Panda United under its General Manager back then, Hamoud Al-Ibrahim, the first Herfy restaurant was opened in Riyadh that same year. Looking to have better control over the quality of its ingredients, the company also decided to start making its own breads. Thus, was also born Herfy Bakery in 1982.

In 1994, Kingdom Holding took control of Panda United’s stake in the company and in 1998, Al Azizia Panda United was incorporated with the Savola Group. Since then, Herfy has been operating in partnership with the Savola Group.

Herfy’s solid commitment to quality and highly-qualified staff as well as its continuous investments in the latest fast food technology form the bedrock of its success. A series of administrative measures have also transformed Herfy into a lean yet powerful organization. This has allowed us to pursue an aggressive expansion program and compete with the largest international brands operating in the fast food and food production market. Through it all, Herfy has grown into the Kingdom’s biggest and most successful fast food brand, dominating the Saudi market. It has also become one of the Kingdom’s first fully-integrated food services companies with its own top of the line bakeries and a state-of-the-art meat processing plant.
