The unique dumpling concept continues rapid expansion with its debut in Florida, bringing five new locations to the Orange County and Miami-Dade County areas
Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, the nation’s fastest growing dumpling automat concept, today announced a signed multi-unit franchise deal to make the brand’s first appearance in Florida. Florida-based franchisee Marc Silverstone closed on a deal with Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to bring at least five units to Orlando, Miami and surrounding areas.
“From the moment I entered the East Village location, I knew this was the right fit for me and for Florida. I’m so excited to be part of the Brooklyn Dumpling Shop family and make this amazing concept available to my fellow Floridians,” said Silverstone. “Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is one of the fastest growing franchises in North America and is positioned somewhere between traditional fast-food restaurants and sit-down restaurants. With our goal to bring locations to Orlando, Miami and Wynwood, we want to make this New York gem a top choice for Florida residents and visitors.”
Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is on track to meet its target growth trajectory of 250 units in development within two years after a year of rapid growth since its inception in 2020. Since the highly anticipated opening of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop in New York’s East Village, the brand has signed new franchise deals for more than 35 units throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas and Florida and is exploring additional markets for expansion. The brand also recently attended the 2021 International Franchise Expo where the concept’s successful booth welcomed crowds eager to learn more about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s technology and sample dumplings.
“We had a lot of interest for franchises in Miami and Orlando, but Marc and I hit it off when he came to our East Village location to try our dumplings, and I could tell he fell totally in love with the concept,” said Stratis Morfogen, owner of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop. “He understands our concept and our mission and is exactly what we’re looking for in a Brooklyn Dumpling Shop franchisee.”
“Brooklyn Dumpling Shop has already seen exponential growth in just one year, and I have full confidence this is only the beginning for the brand,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s franchise development partner. “The revival of the automat concept is ingenious, especially in combatting the current labor shortage issue we’re seeing across the country. The concept and the cuisine are one-of-a-kind and will be in every top market across the country in no time at this rate.”
Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is partnered with Fransmart, the industry-leading franchise development company behind household brands like Five Guys Burgers & Fries and The Halal Guys, as its exclusive franchising partner to grow the brand. The innovative automat concept is currently looking for experienced franchisees and qualified investors to introduce the concept to major media markets across the country.
