About the Founder

Graduated with a degree in business development and management from UCLA. With a passion for the culinary world, he set out to travel across Europe to gain experience and discover new products and trends in the food & beverage arena. His commitment and thrive for perfection enabled him to acquire the right knowledge and expertise to start his own businesses. Upon his return to Saudi Arabia, Mr. Abdulrahman became dedicated to paving his way to excellence in the hospitality and gastronomic field. After fifteen years of continuous success, he aims to develop even further by constantly exploring new and attractive ventures to pursue. His ambition: create a new and innovative vision in hospitality, raising the bar of luxury dining in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

History

AHK Group was established in 1998 by Mr. Abdulrahman H. Al-Khathlan, who currently holds the position of Founder and Chairman. The company began by opening its first restaurant in Riyadh, naming it at the time “No Rules”. It quickly became the most talked about restaurant in Riyadh, shocking the city with its creativity and eccentricity due to its unique design and innovative dining concept. Two years later, AHK opened four recreational centers outside of Riyadh, consisting of restaurants, parks, family activities, and retail stores. In 2002, AHK took on its biggest project at the time – developing a fine-dining restaurant at the top of Kingdom Center, one of Riyadh’s most famous landmarks. The company overcame many obstacles while developing this project, and soon after Spazio was successfully open, under the ownership of Azwaq. From then on, AHK began expanding its businesses, advancing into project development and hospitality management, opening franchises for prestigious international restaurants, and investing in a diversified range of companies from different sectors. After 15 years of success, AHK continues to grow, with plans on expanding its businesses across the Kingdom.

SPAZIO 77

Mr. Abdulrahman Al-Khathlan had a vision of creating a fine dining restaurant at the top of Kingdom Tower, 77 floors above the busy city of Riyadh. As this was not part of the original plans when building this iconic tower, Mr. Abdulrahman presented his concept to HRH. Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, who supported the idea and approved the development of this project. After overcoming many obstacles, he was able to pursue his dream and turn this unused space into one of Riyadh’s best restaurants, with scenery that cannot be found anywhere else in the city. Mr. Abdulrahman partnered with another Saudi entrepreneur for this project, and they successfully opened the restaurant in 2003 (under the ownership of Azwaq), naming it “Spazio”, meaning “Space” in Italian.
Since its opening, Spazio has built its reputation as the place to go for exceptional fine dining in Riyadh, with a unique ambiance which could not be found anywhere else in the city.

Ladurée

The story of Ladurée all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from the southwest of France, founded a bakery in Paris at 16 Rue Royale. In 1871, a fire in the bakery opened the opportunity to transform it into a pastry shop. Soon after, Ladurée succeeded in combining the style of Parisian cafés and the delicacies of French patisserie. Today, Ladurée has established an international brand name by building a temple of gastronomy and pastry innovation.
Mr. Abdulrahman Al-Khathlan’s passion for the French cuisine drove him to the pursuit of acquiring the Ladurée franchise and introducing this remarkable brand to the Saudi market, despite the tough competition amongst Saudi investors for the franchise name. In 2009, AHK, along with other Saudi investors, opened its first Ladurée branch in Saudi Arabia, quickly gaining popularity amongst Riyadh’s upscale society.
