I have known Sanjay for 16 years beginning when I direced the U.S Export Assistance Center for the Rocky Mountain area and then as the senior trade official in 3 U.S. Embassies in the Persian/Arabian Gulf. He single handedly brought a premier chocolate company into the U.A.E., their first store outside North America. That company is just now getting into other international markets, showing that he was a man with great foresight. He is a creative marketer, who got into manufacturing as a way to grow a brand, and is very personable. He is generous, hard working, and quite knowledgable about the Persian/Arabian Gulf, Asia, North America, and Europe, having lived in all these places during his short but active life. If I were looking for a consultant or executive to advise me on a new market and how to break in Sanjay would be my first choice. I recommend him highly.
As General Manager of Mushrif Mall, Sanjay was my key point of contact for the Applebee's and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory brands. He is a high caliber professional and very knowledgeable about retail design, construction and management. Dealing with Sanjay was an absolute pleasure.
Sanjay is an outstanding F&B professional with in-depth knowledge of the Middle East F&B markets and franchising business. He has always been very helpful and very professional and he is an absolute pleasure to work with. I can only recommend him for his hard work and integrity which are in my opinion key to a successful outcome.
Sanjay has been instrumental in bringing Applebee’s first restaurant to Al Ain City to our Mall. As we had several meetings in the process, I can state with confidence that he is one of the very few retail professionals who possess thorough knowledge and extensive experience in Food & Beverage Industry in the Gulf Region. What makes him special is his hands on experience in related/distinct spheres like F&B Retail, Franchising, Strategic Planning, Turnkey projects and his association with world’s leading F&B Operators. I see Sanjay as a self-motivated and reliable person with a high degree of integrity. No doubt Sanjay will be an invaluable asset to any organization.
A season player, operator, adviser, knowledge hub in the franchising sphere, Sanjay offers great insights into light-bulb necessities one never thinks of, that is actually crucial for the business. Match that with a human attitude to go with and what you get is a trusted university on two legs.
Sanjay is an expert in marketing and franchising. He offers quality consulting and is committed to seeing his clients succeed.
Sanjay’s experience spans across the globe and I am confident that his skill sets are highly valuable to any F&B organization/brands that is interested to grow in the Middle East. As a fellow F&B professional, I strongly believe in Sanjay’s leadership traits that have been instrumental in his achieving sustainable positive results.
I have professionally associated with Sanjay for a considerable time, and can say without hesitation that he is the most complete Food & Beverage expert I have ever known.
I have had the pleasure of sharing some great ideas with Sanjay. He is a good man and really knows his stuff.
I am writing to give my highest possible recommendation for Sanjay. Sanjay demonstrates the ability to work with great creativity and enthusiasm. Sanjay is hard working and determined, his many years of F&B experience were highlighted when we launched Applebee's in Al Ain Mall. The event was a great success and to this day the restaurants remains one of the groups top performing outlets.
Our company worked with Sanjay for a few years supplying restaurant equipment and services. We found Sanjay to be a very astute businessman, a straight shooter and a tough but professional and fair negotiator.
I met Sanjay through LinkedIn almost a year ago. His approach was very professional and dignified. I found his knowledge of the retail confectionery market to be quite profound, and his ideas to be well-thought. Judging by his proposal and presentation skills, I believe that Sanjay has got the necessary credentials to provide value added to businesses that are related to the retail industry, especially in the UAE
