Chaiiwala II

10th June 2024

Street food cafe franchise Chaiiwala has secured a site for its second drive-thru location.

The brand launched the UK’s first Indian drive-thru, on Manchester Road in Bolton. The petrol station forecourt site was launched in partnership with EG Group, which has more than 1,000 sites in the UK and Ireland.

“Following the huge success of the first Chaiiwala drive-thru, in Bolton, I am delighted to have completed on a new lease for the second one, which will be located in Mellor Brook, Blackburn,” said EG Group development manager, Peta Pank.

“We are repurposing the former KFC to bring beautiful Indian street food to the area. We are looking for sites from around 0.5 acres to five acres across the UK.”

Earlier this week, Chaiiwala confirmed that it will make its airport debut this summer with a site at London Luton. The business currently has 105 locations globally and has a long-term target of 500 stores as it looks to grow in the US, Canada and the Middle East and UK.
