The millennials are opting to eat out more often, which has opened the door for restaurant franchisors to make money. Offering them limited cuisine and experience is no longer an option, as their demand is constantly evolving.

Vineet Mitta, Owner, Raftaar lounge says, "The industry is changing very rapidly. With the international and national brands competing with each other in the same market, innovations and experiments can be seen at a regular basis. The expectation of customer is changing with time and we have to respond to their changes."


Featuring a period appropriate menu, theme-based restaurants offers a completely new experience for the customers. Franchisors should focus on designing the interiors complimentary to the menu, which would work as a USP for their brand.
