Dubai-based Modern Japanese Restaurant Chain Akiba Dori Partners with FranGlobal; Targets 30 Outlets in 5 Years

Dubai-based modern Japanese restaurant Akiba Dori has partnered with international franchising firm FranGlobal to enter India.

With six restaurants launched across GCC in last 5 years, it has signed a 30-location franchise development deal for India.

The group is eyeing major cosmopolitan locations within India over the next 5 years, bringing the signature Akiba Dori style and modern Japanese street-food & Tokyo-style pizza that customers of the brand have enjoyed over the last 5 years in the UAE & most recently, Saudi Arabia, to one of the biggest consumer markets in the world.

“Launching an original F&B brand in Dubai is as close as you can get to testing your concept on an international audience. Dubai has incomparable PR power; if you can make your brand work here, you can take it almost anywhere on the planet, and I can’t think of more than a handful of cities that can make that claim. Taking Akiba Dori from our home base in Dubai to one of the world’s most powerful markets is a dream for us and we can’t wait to support our franchisees there with the help of our development partners led by India’s franchising legend Mr. Gaurav Marya, Chairman of Franchise India & FranGlobal,” shared Samer S. Hamadeh, Founder, Akiba Dori.

Started in 2017, Akiba Dori is part of the ‘Made in Dubai’ initiative developed by Dubai Tourism & was created to support & promote homegrown F&B brands in the city and beyond.

“We are excited to work in tandem with Akiba Dori in their India expansion journey! Certainly, such a novel and inimitable concept is sure to find success among the Indian consumers, who are always in the lookout for not just food but great experiences as well,” added Gaurav Marya, Founder & Chairman, FranGlobal.
