Street food cafe, Chaiiwala, has opened the first Indian drive-thru in the UK. The site in Bolton, Greater Manchester, has been opened in partnership to serve an array of street food, hot and cold chai drinks and an all-day breakfast.
After starting out serving cups of chaii on the streets of Delhi in 1927, the franchise opened its first site in Leicester in 2016 and is now looking for further possible destinations for a Chaiiwala drive-thru.
Co-founder Sohail Ali said:: “This is exciting news for Bolton and the UK in general. This is a new experience for our valued customers and the first time they can experience our Indian street food in a drive-thru setting. Using this blueprint we are now actively searching for new drive-thru locations across the UK that will replicate the Bolton store model. Our drive-thru concept will allow customers to experience our products in a faster format while also having the ability to visit the store.”
