Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to enter Atlanta with five franchise units

Automat-style chain partners with franchisee Patrick Fisher

Brooklyn Dumping Shop will open at least five restaurants in Atlanta after inking a deal with franchise partner Patrick Fisher. The automat-style, dumpling chain, which was founded in 2020, has targeted growth to 250 units within the next two years.

To date, the restaurant chain has signed franchise agreements for 35 units throughout the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas, and Florida. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop has partnered exclusively with franchise development firm Fransmart, the company that propelled the franchising growth of Five Guys Burgers & Fries and The Halal Guys.

“The Brooklyn Dumpling Shop concept embraces culinary fusion that appeals to the American palate while merging with technological innovation. What a perfect time to introduce this new and exciting concept to the Atlanta market,” said Fisher. “Coupled with Stratis Morfogen, Robert Cummins and Dave Thomas’ knowledge and experience within the restaurant space, this franchise concept is an industry gamechanger. I’m excited to be a part of the future growth of the Brooklyn Dumpling Shop brand here in Atlanta, and eventually throughout the US and around the globe.”

Dan Rowe, chief executive of Fransmart, suggested the concept is right for the times, with its automat convenience and focused use of technology, helping provide an edge in an industry with labor shortages.

“I was convinced early on that Patrick is the right partner for the Atlanta market,” said Stratis Morfogen, owner of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop. “He understands our passion for the modern, high-tech guest experience and operations we are achieving at Brooklyn Dumpling Shop like no other existing QSR. Partnering with Patrick was an easy decision.”
