Chapati Man, the spicy Indian wrap festival and event catering business, launched in London by husband and wife team Chris and Andrea Rai in 2007, has sold the franchise rights for London.
Chapati Man London, led by Asum Shah and Fas Hussain, has purchased the Chapati Man licence rights to open static food-to-go sites and food trucks across the capital.
Describing the sale as a ‘huge achievement for the Chapati Man brand and concept’ Chris Rai said. “We feel that we have found the right team in Asum and Fas to really push Chapati Man across London in both the fixed and mobile formats.’’
Andrea Rai added: ‘’This is a very exciting time for Chapati Man. Myself and Chris have set up the business in London and the time is right to hand over the reigns to this new team who share the long term vision for Chapati Man. Our focus now will be on supporting our franchisees and extending the franchise to other parts of the UK and worldwide.’’
Asum Shah, who has already runs a successful franchise business, said: ‘’We have watched Chris and Andrea in action on their Chapati Man trailer unit. We just need to match their commitment to product quality and customer service.”
Fas Hussain, embarking on his first franchise venture, added: “Chapati Man has delivered a consistently, fantastic service to the people of London. We are extremely excited to take on the challenge of driving the brand to new heights. The opportunity is huge to further embed Chapati Man into the culture of London and move the brand into other parts of the UK.”
