Being his father’s intimate soul-mate an Being his father’s intimate soul-mate and personal assistant in the family business, Faisal Al Khor was well-placed to master his father’s skill and
tactical approach with respect to the jewelry business.
1970 marked an era of successful achievements for Faisal who showed
keen interest in creating, designing and manufacturing jewelry. As one of
the most innovative jewelers in the Kingdom, Faisal was able to consolidate
his position and to further expand through opening more retail jewelry
outlets and also wholesaling within the GCC region.
As the market trends started to diversify, F K International started to
develop and further expanded their business activities to include photography
by introducing International Foto Services (1980) – Bahrain’s first
30-minute film developing lab in the region. Soon, business started to
boom and additional opportunities started to emerge thus further emphasizing
the major potential to introduce new business ideas to the region.
In 1983, F.K. International introduced the First International franchise in
the local market. As this new outlet generated demand, multiple branches
of the franchise were opened in response to customer demand.
