QLG to open 3 restaurants with Michelin French group.

AILYN AGONIA DOHA QATAR Luxury Group (QLG), a Doha-based company owned by Qatar Foundation, will open a restaurant this year and two more in 2012 in collaboration with the renowned 3- star Michelin French chef.

The group, currently active in fashion and hospitality sectors, has also planned to unveil a luxury fashion brand soon.

Talking to Qatar Tribune on Monday, QLG CEO Gregory Couillard said his young and dynamic team has members of 18 nationalities, including Qataris.

"The team is geared up for the launch of this top luxury brand in the Qatari market," he said.

"Our priority is to make sure that we develop and create brands that have their own DNA.

We aspire for space and commodities that are easily recognisable and known for their craftsmanship and creativity.

The opening of our first restaurant in Qatar will tickle the taste buds of Qataris.

Our exciting ventures will add to the growth of Qatari economy," said Couillard.

Couillard has held senior positions at Tag Heuer and at LVMH watches in the Jewellery Division in South- East Asia, Japan and Australia.

He founded Qatar Luxury Group in 2008 under the auspices of Her Highness Sheikha Moza.

Fashion represents the core sector of QLG.

It has invested heavily in designing and engineering equipment for in-house development of product lines.

The fashion division consists of leather goods, shoes and accessories, jewellery and highend ready-to-wear.

Sharing his experience of laying the foundation stone of the new company, he said, "We searched for quality people all over the world and selected those who have the requisite entrepreneurial skill to be the team leaders.

Our group has a strong commitment towards the Qatarisation drive and currently we have three Qataris in our team.

We have just launched our website as part of our drive to make a foray into the local market.

Entering the cosmetics and health sectors in near future is also on our radar.

There are so many exciting things happening in Qatar, including the hosting of 2022 World Cup.

Our hospitality division is eyeing to grab this opportunity.

Overall, we intend to grow with the rest of the country."
