Brooklyn Dumpling Shop Inks First Multi-Unit Franchising Deal

New York City — Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, a fast-growing dumpling automat concept, has signed its first franchising deal to bring five locations to Connecticut. The brand is poised to disrupt the quick-service restaurant industry with its innovative automat technology and contactless format. Even before the first location opens its doors in New York, potential franchisees are eager to sign on to the concept.

The franchisee’s first location will be in New Haven, where Yale is located, as the concept is perfect for college cities and residents will be able to boast that they have one of the first Brooklyn Dumpling Shop locations in the nation. The 24-hour concept will be an ideal spot for college students who are awake at all hours of the night looking for a delicious to-go meal. The custom packaging is noteworthy, as it has been specifically designed to ensure all products from dumplings to Frosé.

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. For more information, visit
