USAID LENS is working in the food processing sector in several targeted governorates to improve quality, service, marketing capabilities, and a range of other capacities to generate increased revenue and job creation in this important sector. As part of the project’s research and through stakeholder engagement, we have identified an opportunity to support restaurants to improve their capacity in a range of areas so they can make a greater contribution to local economic development in their region. Beginning in August 2016, LENS has implemented a “Local Restaurant Capacity Building Upgrade” activity targeting restaurants in Irbid, Zarqa, Amman, Tafilah, Kerak and Aqaba Governorates. The activity has been implemented with collaboration with local service provider “Competence Management Consulting Company.”
As a next step in USAID LENS’ activity to upgrade the capacity and competitiveness of MSEs in the food processing sector, the project will support selected restaurants to grow and generate economic opportunities for local communities, women and youth, through the provision of in-kind grants.
