Brooklyn Dumpling Shop inks first international franchise agreement

02 Dec 2022 - Solidifying its status as one of the nation’s fastest-growing dumpling automat franchises, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop has signed an international multi-unit deal to bring the popular concept to Vancouver, Canada.

At the helm of the brand’s first international agreement is franchisee Grace Lovret, a native New Yorker who brings a diverse background in management, accounting, investments, and entertainment production to Brooklyn Dumpling Shop.

“After experiencing the amazing food, I invited Stratis (founder) to be a guest on my podcast on iHeart Radio. Hearing Stratis talk about this incredibly innovative concept and his plans to expand to more markets nationally and internationally, I knew it was an opportunity I could not pass up,” said Grace. “It’s an exciting time for Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, and I am looking forward to being part of the brand’s international growth story and bringing the brand into one of my favorite places, Vancouver.”

In partnership with franchise development company, Fransmart, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is rapidly expanding its national footprint with more than 80 units in development and plans for even more international growth throughout Canada and beyond. The brand is on track to reach its target growth trajectory of 250 units in development within the next two years.

“This will no doubt be the first of many international deals for the brand and we look forward to closing more deals to bring Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to even more Canadian territories,” said CEO and founder Stratis Morfogen. “Grace’s strong business background makes her a perfect partner for our first venture outside the United States.”
