Wagamama is to launch in India later this year having partnered with travel food and retail company Travel Food Services (TFS).

The pan-Asian casual dining group will open in Mumbai Airport’s International Terminal with plans for further expansion in transport hubs across the country.

The brand says that Mumbai’s status as India’s financial hub, coupled with the airport’s connectivity across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, make it the ideal location to introduce Wagamama to new customers alongside those already familiar with the brand.

The launch will increase the brand’s footprint to 19 countries worldwide.

“We are delighted to enter India later this year through our partnership with Travel Food Services, bringing our pan-Asian cuisine to a market where we anticipate significant demand. We look forward to working closely with TFS to scale our presence across India, as we continue our international expansion into exciting growth markets,” says Thomas Heier, CEO of Wagamama.

TFS is one of India’s leading F&B operators and manages more than 380 QSR, bar, and F&B outlets spread across travel hubs in 19 cities. It also manages and operates 27 Airport lounges globally.

“Wagamama is a brand which is highly regarded worldwide, and we are thrilled to introduce it to the travelling public in India,” says Varun Kapur, executive director of Travel Food Services.

“We look forward to opening the sites and welcoming customers through its doors later this year."

Earlier this year Wagamama revealed plans​ to open up to 10 new restaurants around the UK in a move that it says will create more than 500 jobs.
