El-Abd Foods is a renowned patisserie and bakery chain in the Egyptian market since 1974, its very first branch opened doors on Talaat Harb Street.

El-Abd was the beginning of a whole new chapter in the production of Eastern and Western sweets as well as bakery in Egypt!

Since then, historic El-Abd carved its name on every household and every traditional occasion, by sharing people’s happiness by offering a variety of high-quality products.

Business Environment

The novel COVID-19 outbreak influenced the local F&B industry, especially patisserie industry badly.

From brick and mortar closures to restricted resource supply, all the way to people concerned about buying food amidst uncommon pandemic, the industry

underwent the biggest challenges ever faced. The business environment as it is known took a big hit and only a deeply rooted enterprise would be able to make it to the other end. More than ever, it has now become clear that improving digital sales and channel integrations are the most efficient risk management tools for an optimized outcome.

The Challenge

With reduced offline and physical activities, and little to none stores opening its doors to the public, the challenge was to uphold the sales drop during these hard times became inevitable, in addition to numerous challenges which needed to be addressed.

First of which, is the online accessibility to reroute orders to online channels and enable doorstep delivery. This made it necessary to have one platform that merges offline orders (orders by phone /walk-in customer orders) beside online orders, whether via website or through 3rd party orders (Otlob & Elmenus orders), for smoother operations. The logistics challenge needs skilful treatment: to engage rapid delivery operations to deliver fresh foods to customers’ doorsteps.


The Strategy was to cooperate with El-Abd Foods team to create an online maturity, single platform. Such a maturity model implemented a detailed roadmap to uplift the whole online commerce business. Thus, Link TSP has put together its accumulated experience and cutting-edge technology to tailor a custom design for El-Abd Foods.

Which allowed El-Abd to maintain high operation levels and continue serving their clientele without breaks.
