London, 22 September 2021. The Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group and franchise partner Dolomite Restaurants (an IMM business) are set to open four more branches of Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in India before the end of the year.
Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria launched in India in 2015 and Dolomite currently operates 11 Jamie Oliver restaurants across the country, including two Jamie’s Italian branches in Delhi and several Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria branches in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Hyderabad. The new branches will include Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh and Lucknow, with the first opening its doors at Viviana Mall Thane (Mumbai) this week. This brings the total number of outlets in India to 15 by the end of the year.
After this, Jamie’s will also launch in a range of Indian cities including across the Punjab as well as in Ahmedabad and Goa, and further openings are already planned and by March 2022 bringing the total number Jamie Oliver branded restaurants across the Indian subcontinent to twenty. Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria the leading affordable quality pizza brand in India, and India one of the fastest growing markets for the brand globally.
The affordable casual-dining Pizzerias with their welcoming and relaxed atmosphere are loved for great service, authentic hand-stretched Neapolitan pizzas, big global flavours, fresh ingredients and consistent, all-round quality.
When it comes to toppings, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria respects the classics, but is not afraid to break the rules with exciting flavours from around the world, creating the ultimate pizza experience. Traditional Neapolitan dough is slow-proved for maximum flavour and texture, then hand-tossed and baked to perfection. Pizzas are either ‘Classics’ or ‘Rebels’, ranging from a simple Margherita to a Paneer Kadhai, topped with spicy paneer, hot and sour peppers and crispy ginger. The menu also features a selection of incredible baked dishes, nibbles, fresh salads and tempting desserts.
Ed Lofus, Restaurant Group Director for the Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group, said: “Our incredible pizzas and versatile menu offers something for everyone at a great price point, and we are delighted that diners across India have responded so brilliantly. Dolomite is a fantastic partner and India continues to be a key growth market for us, with plans for further openings next year and beyond already well under way.”
Jasper Reid, IMM Founder and Dolomite Restaurants CEO, said: “The key to Jamie’s Pizzeria is simplicity and affordability. We offer superb, simple food for less than £5 and – most importantly – our model means we get it right every time. India is calling out for authentic pizzas, great service and every-day prices and our great team is answering the call.”
