Tin Drum Asiacafé Targets Central Florida for Franchise Development

Atlanta-based Fast Casual, Pan Asian restaurant franchise, Tin Drum Asiacafé, announced today its plans to exhibit at two events in Orlando in late April – Retailer One on One on April 25th and Franchise Expo on April 26-27th – both located at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. Presence at these two regional events is a part of the fast casual franchise concept’s new growth strategy to target the central Florida market for franchise and real estate development opportunities.

“The Tin Drum brand melds perfectly with the diversity and energy that Orlando has to offer,” says Tin Drum founder and CEO, Steven Chan. “There are very few Pan-Asian franchise concepts, so we are truly looking forward to engaging with the central Florida franchise and real estate communities – and eventually carving out a true niche in this new market.”

Tin Drum yields the diverse flavors of Asia served fresh to order in an edgy, urban environment – reflecting the bustling street-side cafes of Chan’s childhood in Hong Kong. Each franchised unit features state of the art self-ordering kiosks, equipped with health-based software to help guests order based on their specific dietary goals and a diverse menu, encouraging higher than average visit frequency.

Founded in 2004 near the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, Tin Drum AsiaCafe offers a proven concept with sound financial performance and an efficient and compact store layout that reduces both initial build out costs and on-going operating costs compared to many other fast casual restaurant franchises.

The company currently operates 13 corporate and franchised locations in Georgia and Alabama, and is actively seeking qualified multi-unit operators in the Orlando area and across central Florida. Prospective franchisees must have a minimum net worth of $500,000 and liquid assets of at least $250,000 per unit.
