A great start to 2013 for our client Just Falafel, with five sites now completed, three are now trading, in Covent Garden’s Monmouth Street, Baker Street and at The Broadway Centre in Hammersmith.
The next Just Falafel locations are Charing Cross Road and Croydon, currently under fit-out, will be opening shortly. We continue to seek further A3 or A5 opportunities in key Central London thoroughfares and locations close to underground and mainline stations, as well as starting to looking further afield to major cities.
Just Falafel, the vegetarian fast-food restaurant, launched in the UAE in 2007, has franchised across Qatar, Lebanon, Oman, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The Covent Garden site was the first Just Falafel to open in Europe.
Fadi Malas, the CEO, who has been crowned by Gulf Capital SME Awards as the “Arab Entrepreneur of the Year” for 2012, commented that the business aims to establish 200 more branches in the UK over the next five years.
Richard Grossman comments – “in our line of work we see a lot of new food operations, but few excite us as much as Just Falafel which we feel will be a great addition to the UK restaurant landscape, with an innovative offering, superb branding and significant franchisee interest”.
As retained advisers to Just Falafel, we are looking for A3 or A5 sites offering from 750 sq ft to 1,500 sq ft in high footfall locations throughout London and major UK cities. We are particularly keen to secure sites within or alongside transport terminals.
Please contact Theo Benedyk or Richard Grossman with opportunities.
