Barbeque Nation, India’s leading casual dining restaurant chain, launched its eleventh outlet in Bengaluru. The success of the existing outlets in the city has encouraged the team to spread its culinary delight to foodies in other parts of the city.
The new Bengaluru outlet is situated in Whitefield which is the IT hub and will attract majorly the students, corporates and residents of Whitefield. Spread over an area of 4,600 square feet, the grand new outlet is located at Virginia Mall in Whitefield. It is the 119th outlet in India.
Ritam Mukherjee, Regional Manager-Operations, Barbeque Nation Hospitality Ltd, said, “Barbeque Nation is Bengaluru’s favourite destination for casual dining and that is evident from the way our restaurant chain has grown in the city over the years. Starting from the first outlet at Indiranagar in 2006, to the 11th today at Whitefield, we have come a long way in offering diverse culinary experiences and tastes to diners, that has distinguished us in many ways. Whitefield is one of the most important hubs for IT professionals in the city and we are witnessing a growing fondness for our proposition in the region, prompting us to launch a second outlet in the area, at Virginia Mall. We look forward to offering our guests a gastronomic delight unlike any other.”
Unveiling the expansion plans, Ritam told Restaurant India, “Barbeque Nation has grown by leaps and bounds ever since its inception. Every month we try to launch at least two outlets in two major cities. Now, we are targeting to get deeper into tier 2 and tier 3 cities as well. Our footfalls in tier 2 & 3 cities are equivalent to that of a tier 1 city, i.e., almost 250 pax a day.”
Kids from Being Social NGO were invited to the launch as guests of honour. Foodies in and around the region now stand a greater chance to experience the delight of grilling their own vegetarian and non-vegetarian barbeques on live grills, embedded on the tables at the restaurant.
