Smart City smart franchisee restaurants are the new trend


by Girish Pai

Quick serve restaurants (QSR) is the mantra in the new millennium as several franchisee food outlets have been growing at a rapid pace in tier 1 cities and now the same trend is happening in tier 2 cities like Belagavi city which is scheduled to become smart in the day s to come.


As Belagavi city is set to become smart, several smart food outlets who have taken franchise have mushroomed. Most of them are in a compact area of a few hundred square feet and are very aesthetically done up. Most of them operate in self-service mode.

Four new franchisee outlets have opened in Nehru Nagar Belagavi in the past few months which have their own USP and have excellent decor and a wide variety of food products.

Lassi Corner

In a year has grown to 130+ outlets across 22 Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities of India. They have outlets running in various sizes and models with carpet area starting from 100 sq ft onwards. At Lassi Corner, they strive to help people transform their lives through conscious nutrition. Years of experience sourcing premium ingredient transforms into Lassi, Milkshake, Coffee & delicious Ice Cream. They take the wonderful, the natural, and the raw, to provide their customers with the highest quality products – the Lassi that you see in their vibrant displays goes directly into their cups. They weave magic to turn the freshest exotic fruit and yogurt combination into the best Lassi, smoothies and Milkshakes.

Lassi corner, at Pai’s food court, Nehru Nagar, Belagavi has been started by 3 young men.


Since our founding in 2019 December, we committed to the Shawarma as the centerpiece of their menu. That will never change. A shared love of the most desirable sandwich in the Arab world and a token of the tradition, generosity and good taste of our people. Opening the kitchens for all to see the quality and care they bring to food preparation is the last mile in our commitment to Transparency. But Transparency starts at the very beginning of the food chain, in how they train people, how they select the suppliers and partners and food handling and safety processes that are the foundation of the yummy Shawarma promise.
