That’s Entertainerment

That’s Entertainerment

“I was driving one day on Sheikh Zayed Road, and there were so many restaurants with 10 percent off deals and things like that,” she says. “I thought: If you could do a buy-one-get-one-free, and offer enough inspiration to go over to a beach hotel if you lived in Garhoud…. If you could get a complimentary main meal, for instance, that would drive you to travel that distance.

“So I did a feasibility study. I worked at an Internet café typing everything up. I went around and asked a few people. I found an investor, put together a project, went to all the government offices and thought, ‘If it works it works, and if it doesn’t I can always go and get a job.’”

It was an ambitious project; promotions and discounting were hardly uncommon in the restaurant business, but Benton always planned for The Entertainer to stand out. “From the start I had a policy that we don’t do percentages – it had to be a buy-one-get-one-free, and it had to be valid anytime. I didn’t want a tacky voucher book, I wanted an upmarket book where you could flick to any page and it would always be the same deal.”
