On the heels of Jamaican-based company FRANJAM signing a franchise agreement with the UK-based Casual Dining Restaurants Group (CDRG) to open 15 Tracks & Records restaurants over the next five years across the United Kingdom, the brand Jamaican-themed restaurant concept is now gaining interest from possible franchisees in the US and Germany. To date, the breaking story that was originally released on August 11, 2017 has been making news around the world, with mentions on over 80 online websites ranging from Esquire magazine UK to the Washington Post in the USA.

“For us, this is a significant milestone in the company's development,” shared FRANJAM's Managing Director Gary Matalon with Thursday Food .

“When we created the Tracks & Records concept it was done with these major markets in mind. The UK has been a key target market for us since the conceptualisation stage over seven years ago and there is no greater satisfaction than to see it unfold in this way. For Jamaica, I believe this signifies the first time a local, home-grown concept has evolved into becoming an international franchise. This confirms brand Jamaica's potential and gives us widespread hope that we can export many other Jamaican brands through this business model,” he added.

Thursday Food adds its own congratulations as this deal represents the first Jamaican-owned restaurant franchise concept to open on an international scale.
