US-based restaurant and entertainment business Dave & Buster’s is plotting its global expansion plan with 20 stores in India and Australia.
While 15 locations are set to open in India under the partnership with the Malpani Group, Dave & Buster’s will roll out five stores in Australia with NightOwl Entertainment Group.
The deals mark Dave & Buster’s second and third multi-store franchise agreements, “firmly cementing the brand” in the Apac and MEA regions with 31 stores committed to development since the company’s global expansion plans last year.
“The Malpani Group, known for its passion for innovation and diversified growth, is poised to dominate the indoor and outdoor entertainment industry,” said Antonio Bautista, chief international development officer of Dave & Buster’s.
“Australia’s dynamic market presents a significant opportunity for growth, and the NightOwl Entertainment Group, renowned for its innovative approach, is the ideal partner for our brand.” We can’t wait to bring our unparalleled entertainment experience to this vibrant market.”
Dave & Buster’s, established in 1982 with headquarters in Coppell, Texas, is the owner and operator of 200 venues across North America under the two different trademarks of Dave & Buster’s and Main Event. Dave & Buster’s has 152 locations across 41 states, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
