The money allocated to this extension manoeuvre is Rs 100 crore ,tobe pumped into this endeavour over a period of 3 years. The firmanticipates aRs.1000 crore sales in the next 3-4 years ,with more than 150-200 outlets disseminated across the country; in malls, office complexes, high way locations,airports, hospitals and other locations offering a high foot fall. According to Pavan Gandhok, CEO , Lite Bite Foods Pvt. Ltd , “ the company has already invested over 50 crores and is looking to double that over the next six to nine months. Returns on investments at the store level are very attractive, typically at 30-40% cash on cash returns, payback periods of 2 yrs or less, ROIs well in excess of 25% .” Lite Bite Foodsis promoted jointly by Dabur`s Mr Amit Burman , Mr Rohit Aggarwal and Mr Tejpavan Gandhok. “With Lite Bite Foods, we are attempting to be a restaurant chain company, which I don`t think anyone in India has attempted to be." claimed Burman. The initialLite Bite Foods stores will becompany - owned .However, ithas started contemplating franchising on a pilot basis and is on seeking the “right fit of a franchisee in terms of mindset.” Their franchising model is to retain strong control of operating systems and store level employee management to ensure fulfillment of strict quality control and customer service guidelines. Lite Bite Foods claims to provide complete support to its Franchisees, right from the design; project management of fit-out; and complete operational management responsibility right from hiring and training of staff to managing day to day operations. Its preferance is for high street areas within NCR for their fine dining and quick service format restaurants and highways located within 2-4 hours from NCR for its mini food court models. Capital investment of approximately 1.5 to 2crores is required and a typical carpet area of 2500-3500 sq ft for a fine dining restaurant; 3-5000 sq ft for a mini food court and 5-10000 sq ft for a larger food court is imperative. Lite Bite Foods aspires to construct a significant pan-India pipeline, with over half a million sq ft already signed. Its mission is to rapidly achieve critical mass by employing a strategic mix of pugnacious organic growth and judicious joint-ventures and acquisitions. It is aiming for a grand total of 300 stores within 3 to 5 years and eventually wants to take many of its concepts overseas as well. Lite Bite Foods is also the largest franchise operator of Subway pan-India.
