Fulham Shore takes on Bukowski franchise
Restaurant investment group Fulham Shore is to open a charcoal grill venture in Soho under a franchise agreement with Bukowski Grill.
The three-year agreement relates to a site in D'Arblay Street, which Fulham Shore owns under a 15-year lease. An initial fee of £8,500 will be paid to Bukowski, while a franchise royalty of 5% of the restaurant's revenue will be levied.
The new restaurant will join Fulham Shore's existing portfolio of 26 properties made up of nine The Real Greek and 17 Franco Manca restaurants.
David Page, executive chairman of Fulham Shore, said: "This three-year franchise agreement will add to Fulham Shore's exposure to, and knowledge of, the exciting and thriving London restaurant market."
The new site will offer an all-day menu, kicking off with brunch dishes such as chicken, waffles, fried egg and chilli maple syrup; cornmeal-crusted soft shell crabs; and poached eggs with hot sauce hollandaise. Dinner dishes include confit duck BBQ cassoulet; smoked shrimp, avocado, red onion and little gem salad with jalapeño dressing; Reuben hash; and deep-fried lamb neck with lime pickle mayo.
The Soho restaurant will join existing Bukowski outlets in Shoreditch and Brixton.
