Amsterdam Falafelshop Signs Multi-Unit Development Agreement for the Greater Philadelphia Market

Local Entrepreneur to Launch Three New Shops in Philadelphia and Surrounding Communities

May 27, 2015 // Franchising.com // PHILADELPHIA, PA – Amsterdam Falafelshop today announced plans to bring the brand’s award-winning falafel to the Philadelphia market. Local entrepreneur Chirag Gandhi signed a multi-unit franchise agreement to launch three new shops in the metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs.

Based in D.C., the fast-growing fast casual franchise concept has already captured widespread admiration in the nation’s capital and beyond for its tasty falafel and authentic atmosphere.

“During a family vacation, my wife and I had the opportunity to visit Amsterdam Falafelshop – it was love at first bite,” said Gandhi, who formerly owned and operated a local hotel and currently owns multiple Edible Arrangements units. “We knew we had to bring the delicious tastes and atmosphere to our community. We are very excited to introduce the people of Philadelphia to Amsterdam Falafelshop.”

Over the past decade, Amsterdam Falafelshop has become known for its top-it-yourself falafel experience with an authentic vibe and a culture beyond compare. The brand’s strategic expansion continues to catch the attention of recognized business leaders and established entrepreneurs.

“Chirag is a leader in every sense of the word. We are proud to have him and his wife join the Amsterdam Falafelshop family and we are confident that they are the right people to bring the concept to Pennsylvania,” said Scott Bennett, Chairman of Amsterdam Falafelshop. “We’ve been humbled by our customers embracing Amsterdam Falafelshop as something special from the beginning and by their unwavering support as we have grown. We are really looking forward to seeing the brand take-off in the Philadelphia market and beyond.”

Amsterdam Falafelshop has garnered a global fan base and consistently tops best-food lists, receives widespread food-critic acclaim, and has won over the hearts of discerning customers who have made it a top restaurant on Yelp. In addition to serving fresh-made falafel sandwiches and Dutch-style fries [“frieten”], shops offer nearly two-dozen toppings for patrons to customize their falafel.

In addition to growing in Philadelphia, Amsterdam Falafelshop is moving forward with an aggressive U.S. franchise growth plan calling for expansion into other select urban centers where the brand can maintain its originality among a diverse collection of consumers. The company is still accepting applications from qualified franchisees interested in further developing in key U.S. areas throughout the Northeast, East Coast, Midwest and Southeast. East Coast target markets include Richmond, Virginia; Baltimore and Bethesda, Maryland; and Charlotte, Greensboro and Asheville, North Carolina.

There are currently seven Amsterdam Falafelshop franchise locations operating — one in Annapolis, Maryland, three in Washington D.C., two in Boston and one in Clarendon, Virginia. The first shop in the Dallas-Fort Worth market will open in the summer of 2015. Additionally, there are two more shops planned for the Greater D.C. area, one more in the Boston market and multiple locations for Dallas-Fort Worth.
