Back from the brink: How Gourmet Egypt survived the float of the EGP

Gourmet and Led Zeppelin have something in common — A Whole Lotta Love: Jalal Abu Gazaleh built a business by putting love ahead of everything else: A business that customers, employees, and shareholders alike would love. Ten years down the line, it’s clear Abu Gazaleh was onto something: He built Gourmet into a retail powerhouse that survived the EGP by pivoting into food manufacturing. Episode one of Making It, our new weekly podcast on how to build a great business in Egypt, dives deep into Abu Gazaleh’s story.
