The Cumin Bowl expands into Buckhead, Atlanta via Franklin Junction

Expansion possible via dark-kitchen solutions provider, Franklin Junction

Chicago’s The Cumin Bowl and its customizable Indian bowls expanded into Atlanta through a partnership with Franklin Junction. The new location landed at a Buckhead UPop convenience store by Savi Provisions. Dark-kitchen operator Franklin Junction enabled the entry into the Atlanta market through its host kitchen program.

The Cumin Bowl boasts a menu of approachable, customizable, Indian bowls. In addition, the Chicago-based restaurant chain offers Signature Bowls starting at $9.99. These include the Chicken Tikka Masala Bowl and Paneer Butter Masala Bowl.

The Cumin Bowl Buckhead

The Cumin Bowl Buckhead delivery outlet puts the fast-casual, Indian-bowl chain on a path to its goal of opening in 25 cities by the end of the year.

The Cumin Bowl’s Buckhead location brings the brand one step closer to reaching its goal of expanding into 25 cities across the US by the end of 2022. The Cumin Culinary Brands, the parent company of The Cumin Bowl and Indian food meal kit brand The Cumin Club, successfully launched its first fast-casual concept in Chicago last year.

“We’re thrilled to introduce The Cumin Bowl’s fresh take on Indian food to Atlanta and add The Cumin Bowl to our roster of brands that span across a variety of cuisines,” said Rishi Nigam, chief executive and co-founder of Franklin Junction. “Our Host Kitchen network enables us to offer authentic, high-quality brands like The Cumin Bowl to people all across the country.”


The Cumin Club

Its parent, Cumin Culinary Brands, also operates an Indian-food meal-kit brand called The Cumin Club. Both brands launched in Chicago in 2021.

In addition to the new The Cumin Bowl Buckhead restaurant offerings, the company offers five-minute meal kits under The Cumin Club branding. Customers receive these chef-curated meals through a direct-to-consumer meal kit subscription service.

“We’re passionate about making healthy Indian food more accessible to all Americans, one bowl at a time,” said The Cumin Culinary Brands co-founder Ragoth Bala. “The Cumin Bowl’s menu features curated dishes from throughout India, but with a familiar flair that customers will enjoy. We believe Indian food will soon be a staple in Americans’ weekly lunch and dinner routines, along with Chinese, Mexican, and Italian cuisines.”
