Brooklyn Dumpling Shop continues Southern expansion in Georgia

The dumpling automat concept has signed a five-unit deal to bring the brand to Atlanta, Georgia

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop has signed a five unit franchise deal to bring locations to Atlanta, Georgia for the first time. The brand inked the deal with franchisee Patrick Fischer. 

“The Brooklyn Dumpling Shop concept embraces culinary fusion that appeals to the American palate while merging with technological innovation. What a perfect time to introduce this new and exciting concept to the Atlanta market,” said Fisher.  

“Coupled with Stratis Morfogen, Robert Cummins and Dave Thomas’ knowledge and experience within the restaurant space, this franchise concept is an industry gamechanger. I’m excited to be a part of the future growth of the Brooklyn Dumpling Shop brand here in Atlanta, and eventually throughout the U.S. and around the globe.” 

The brand is on target to meet its goal of 250 units in development within two years of its inception in 2020. Ever since the first opening 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.  

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop also attended the 2021 International Franchise Expo where the concept’s booth attracted crowds eager to learn more about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s technology and sample dumplings from the menu. 

“I was convinced early on that Patrick is the right partner for the Atlanta market,” said Stratis Morfogen, owner of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop.  

“He understands our passion for the modern, high-tech guest experience and operations we are achieving at Brooklyn Dumpling Shop like no other existing QSR. Partnering with Patrick was an easy decision.” 

“Brooklyn Dumpling Shop continues to prove its unique concept is a one-of-a-kind brand for franchisees to invest in,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s franchise development partner.  

“The revival of the automat concept and focus on technology is especially important in today’s climate to help combat the current labor shortage issues restaurants are challenged with.” 

The brand recently signed a deal to bring at least five units to Austin, Texas.
