Authentic Indian fast food retailer Tiffinbites is aiming to open 50 UK outlets in the next three years as it takes the brand outside the capital.
It is also in discussions about selling snacks under the Tiffinbites brand at a leading supermarket, said co-founder Jonathan Marks.
Founded in 2002 by Marks and fellow M& S lingerie buyer Jamal Hirani, Tiffinbites now operates four stores in London and one in Birmingham’s Bull Ring centre.
Inspired by tiffin boxes delivered to five million Indians in Mumbai every month by dabbah wallahs, Tiffinbites stores sell authentic Indian snacks, main meals and desserts that can be eaten at home or at work or heated up on site for instant consumption.
Marks said he was in the process of completing a new round of funding to raise £3m to drive the business forward, with a further three sites lined up for this year and 12 next year.
