The Hungarian DIY restaurant concept is looking to build on the success of its Vienna and Bratislava locations.
The first Makery location opened in Budapest, five years ago and proved to be an innovative concept. After successful launches in Bratislava and Vienna, plans are underway to open two more locations in European cities.
Customers are expected to choose their meal on a tablet, but are only given raw ingredients to prepare the meal as instructed by the tablet at their table with built-in ovens and induction plates. Raw ingredients are brought to customers in measured bowls and customers have a choice of 30 different meals with a mix of healthy, vegan and international dishes.
Makery provides all tools necessary for its customers to cook their meals, and typically takes around 20-25 minutes per meal, with everyone working on a single table. The franchise concept has been popular with families and corporate teams using this opportunity for team-building.
Co-founder András Kövécs said the main choices for the next two locations are: Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Milan or Stockholm. Kövécs is convinced his concept will succeed after gaining a 5.0 consumer satisfaction rating in the Budapest location.
The restaurant concept was initially born in Budapest, Hungary in 2015. After a year of work and establishing the restaurant and the experience, Makery began franchising in 2020 and signed deals for new locations in Bratislava and Vienna. The brand is currently still searching for more early bird franchisees.
