Our Founder, Mr. Zuhayr Ramadan


Founded in 1956, Semiramis is a family owned and operated company. The company’s original headquarters is in Damascus, Syria, and has expanded to include production facilities in Cairo, Egypt and Niğde, Turkey.

Mr. Zuhayr Ramadan, also known as Abu Saadi, established Semiramis pastries in 1956. At nineteen Mr. Ramadan was already considered a Master in his field. His first shop was located in the old city quarter of Damascus.

Later, Mr. Ramadan moved to the Salhieh Market before settling in the current location on Abu-Rumanneh in 1978. In 1995 Mr. Ramadan rebuilt the shop from the ground up, reopening in 1998. A nearby state of the art production facility was completed in 2000. Also in 2000, Semiramis established an online website which was managed by our United States office. The US office allowed Semiramis to ship internationally as well as provide products to wholesale and retail establishments in the United States. In 2012 his sons initiated the next phase and opened a new production facility in Cairo, Egypt where they have also opened two retail locations. To accommodate the expanding international market, the company built an additional state of the art facility in Niğde, Turkey. All products come from one of these locations.
