"When the time came to decide which franchise to invest in, Abrakebabra was attractive to us because it’s in a league of its own. We felt that we needed a recognised brand with great marketing and a popular product.

In 1996 we decided to franchise with Abrakebabra and today nearly 25 years later our store continues to trade very successfully. We recently refreshed our store design and we are seeing increased sales, despite an increase in competition from other fast food restaurants. We are big fans of Abrakebabra and the support the team provides."
