THE SLIDER STORY
The Slider Corner was founded by Claudio Leenders, a Nicaraguan born, German raised passionate young entrepreneur and restaurateur. With his vision to own his own restaurants, Claudio started his journey traditionally in 1997 with a German apprenticeship in hotel management. Prior to building and operating several successful F&B Dubai based concepts, Claudio worked in management for the Kempinski Hotel Group, The Ritz Carlton, Palazzo Versace, and the Burj Al Arab Hotel. A firm believer of “knowledge is power”, Claudio completed his MBA In 2010 ESCP Europe Paris/Bond University Australia.
The Slider Corner started as a fun project which has now turned into a profitable and successful franchise model built on the principles of passion and dedication. The Slider Corner’s start was not easy however. Claudio took over an existing 40sqm unprofitable corner food outlet, along Jumeirah Beach Road with a plan to add value to Dubai fast food industry. Claudio developed and executed the slider corner from concept design to a full operating successful food and beverage operation all within 30 days, due to rent continuity, location and time pressure. The first Slider Corner operation opened on December 2nd, 2015, followed by the opening of a further location on Kite Beach within four months, with The Slider Corner brand becoming the synonom for Dubai’s best gourmet mini burger.
