Mark Wright, founder of Indian-inspired ‘twisted’ street food concept Rola Wala, is looking to evolve its format “to the next level”.
The company recently opened its first seated restaurant – at Selfridges in Birmingham – to complement its grab-and-go offer in Spitalfields, London, and the Trinity Centre, Leeds.
Wright admitted the company had taken a “considerable hit” by closing its site at the Westgate Centre in Oxford just six months after launch.
“It wasn’t quite what we expected and we took the view it was better to leave,” claiming he will learn from the experience.” move forward.
Apparently trade was “not quite as buoyant as a year ago,” but said, “You just have to get better at what you do and, if you keep delivering great-tasting food, service and value, people will come.”
