About us

Al-Ahmar Trading & Investment Company (ATICO) is a subsidiary of the Al-Ahmar Group of Companies.

Established in 1998, ATICO holds the distinction of being Yemen's first company dedicated solely to marketing and developing international retail brands and franchises in the Yemeni market.

ATICO has gained international recognition and local respect for representing some of the world's most renowned retail brands.

ATICO is also the major shareholder in the Yemen Food Company, YFC, sole franchisee for Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in the Republic of Yemen.



Our Vision'With our unique ingredients of a professional and high caliber management team, excellent portfolio of international brands, and our focus on offering our customers the best products, quality and service, we expect ATICO to further strengthen its reputation as Yemen's premier and most successful retailer.

We are looking forward to a challenging and successful period ahead of us. Our focus will be to continue educating the Yemeni consumer on the advantages of retailing in Yemen and to

develop the Yemeni retail market further with a variety of new and exciting franchise brands as well as lucrative Joint Ventures with the region's leading retailers.

Despite ATICO's ever-increasing brands, we continue to treat each brand as a separate entity. We create specific project and management teams to concentrate on each brand independently. Hence, while our management is brand focused and decentralized, we utilize our optimum strengths by centralizing key functions such as marketing, finance, development, and real estate management and procurement from our head office.
