About Azadea Group Holding

AZADEA’s possibilities started in 1978, with one small shop and countless big ambitions

Today’s AZADEA Group grew out of a single clothing store that opened in 1978 at the heart of Beirut. Just a few years later, we won our first international franchise. Shortly thereafter, the company embarked on an expansion that has taken it across the Middle East and Africa and added more than 35 of the world’s most popular brands. With over 10,000 employees, AZADEA now boasts more than 600 stores in more than a dozen countries.
