For over 33 years, the name Herfy has become synonymous with world-class Saudi quality, entrepreneurship and innovation. It is one of today's leading Saudi companies, with a successful reputation built on its market-leading restaurants, bakery & sweets, and meat processing businesses.
The company was co-founded in 1401H/1981G, by Ahmed Bin Hamad 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 Hamud Bin Saad Al-Ibrahim, the first Herfy restaurant 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.
