Franchise With Us

“I am very excited about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, the brand’s innovative technology is exciting and the food is delicious……..
“A teaspoon of inspiration, a glass 1/2 full of motivation, a handful of dedication to details, 3 generations of ambitious drive, and a whole lotta of Love, is what I’d call a recipe for success.”
“Hearing the story of how this concept came to life, along with embracing the over 100 years of collective restauranteurship that Stratis brings to this QSR was enough to know this is a winner. I am very excited to be a part of the evolution of one my favorite foods and having the opportunity to bring it to my home state of New Jersey.”

“We just opened our first of five Brooklyn Dumpling Shops in Queens. As first time QSR owners it was definitely a learning curve to own, open and operate this business. However with corporate help from leaders such as Michael and Peter we successfully reached our opening goals. Our state of the art tech is next level, operating with no issues and is very appealing to our customer base. One thing we can tell you is that we look forward to opening our second Queens location by the end of the year.”

    Our Story

    Stratis Morfogen is an established restaurateur who has handcrafted 32 delicious flavors of dumplings to be served in a 24hour automat. The entire concept is touchless and contact-free keeping customers and staff safe while being able to deliver consistent hot and fresh food. It’s the first dumpling franchise to go completely touch-free.
    Utilizing the once common Automat allows the brand to keep customers and employees safe by eliminating a point of contact but also regulate the temperature of each locker ensuring food stays piping hot or drinks perfectly chilled. Customers will receive a unique code on their phone which opens only their lockers. This ensures the correct food is taken every time and makes it fast and easy for third-party delivery services. Customers are able to order online or at self-sanitizing kiosks in-store.
    This revolutionary concept has shaken the QSR industry and is on track to reach its goals to open 500 units in the next 5 years are underway. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop will be in every train station, airport, strip mall, and shopping center in the top mass media markets both nationally and worldwide.
