McDonald’s gives out 75,000 free McChickens to customers

As a way of appreciating their valued customers and sharing enjoyable dining moments with them, McDonald’s gave out 1,000 free McChickens on Feb. 6 between 9 p.m. to 12 a.m., from every store in the western and southern region of the Kingdom, except mall and airport stores.
The offer raised sparks from all McDonald’s lovers across the region, as many guests waited anxiously even before the clock ticked 9 p.m. just to get the long-awaited offer.
McDonald’s put an organized system in place to serve as many customers as possible during those three hours. A McDonald’s employee stood next to every store’s entrance to hand out coupons to guests that could be redeemed at the counter for a free McChicken.
With that, McDonald’s managed to give out over 75,000 free McChickens to thousands of customers.
People did not limit expressing their excitement to the day of the offer, but also were sharing their experience the next day all over social media. Much positive feedback, that included a variety of videos and pictures from customers, was shared across all social media channels.
Mohamed Alireza, deputy general manager of Reza Food Services (McDonald’s West and South) said: “Our customers’ enthusiasm is the drive behind all of our initiatives and we can’t get enough of that. We are always coming up with different ways to reward all of our customers, and we were really happy to serve them with this offer. It brings us joy to see the number of people who showed up with their families just to share these moments with their loved ones.”

ENOC Group to build 45 service stations in KSA

ENOC (Emirates National Oil Company) Group, a wholly owned entity of the government of Dubai, has announced major expansion plans to build 45 new service stations in Saudi Arabia over the next five years. The group’s plans are aligned with the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs’ plan, which aim for the construction of over 1,200 petrol stations across the Kingdom.
All 45 ENOC service stations will be strategically built on the Kingdom’s vast network of highways that interconnect the 13 provinces and serve as a major logistics and trade land-corridor, connecting the Kingdom to the rest of the GCC and the Middle East region. Over the next two years, ENOC’s plan will focus on building stations in the central region, mainly Riyadh and the Eastern Province.
Saif Humaid Al-Falasi, ENOC Group CEO, said: “With Saudi Arabia’s long-term vision to diversify its economy, boost tourism and infrastructure and enhance business and trade, our plan to expand our retail network by over 220 percent in the next five years is aligned with the Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to reduce oil dependency, increase privatization and implement the Saudi nationalization scheme.”
ENOC currently operates 14 stations across the Kingdom. The group’s future service stations will also include ZOOM convenience stores. Customers will also enjoy a variety of retail outlets such as Pronto.
