A great number stop and buy the Panku products, a number which is growing all the time. A typical supermarket sees an average of 4,000 customers per day so, in any given area, that is 10s of thousands of potential customers every week.

Panku street food kiosks have been offering customers an authentic taste of Japanese, Thai and Korean food since 2019. You may even have seen its colourful kiosks in your local Asda supermarket, as the business has partnered with the chain to serve exciting dishes across the UK.

Panku are looking for franchisees who will either, act as single kiosk owner/operators themselves, or who would like to own and operate multiple kiosk locations; they need people with the energy and passion that comes from a direct personal investment in the brand to really shine through to our customers. 

Existing franchisees come from a range of backgrounds, and Panku street food embrace people from all walks of life. If you’ve got a can-do attitude and a hands-on approach to business, you could be perfect for the role. You should be prepared to work in your kiosk and manage its day-to-day operations, but experience in the street food or sushi sectors isn’t an absolute requirement; instead, you’ll need to be able to deliver quality customer service in a fast-paced environment. 

Previous management and leadership experience, and the ability to demonstrate strong business acumen, and the skills required to lead and motivate a busy team are also seen as desirable attributes. 

You’ll receive a comprehensive training programme designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to make your new business a success.

The training takes place over the course of 2 to 3 weeks (depending on your experience) well in advance of you taking on your new kiosk. You’ll also have one-week academy training from the very best in our organisation, followed by one to two-weeks of practical training in a kiosk near to your location.

The cost of investing in a Panku street food kiosk in Asda, is obviously variable depending on the current sales of that kiosk. Panku will discuss the exact cost with you when you contact them about the location you have in mind, but you can expect to pay from:

  • £20,000 plus VAT for a kiosk turning over up to £3,000 per week 
  • £25,000 plus VAT for a kiosk turning over between £3,000 and £4,000 per week.
  • £30,000 plus VAT for a kiosk turning over between £4,000 and £5,000 per week.

There are some established kiosks achieving a turnover of more than £5,000 per week and they will be priced accordingly; all the brand-new openings are £35,000 exc VAT

As an established, ongoing concern, your kiosk will not require any further costs. No investment is necessary to lease and outfit your premises, or to buy equipment. Everything is already there, just waiting for you.
