Mumbai-based Essence Retail Venture Ltd (ERVL) has taken over the master franchisee of Singapore-based quick casual dining joint, Pastamania. ERVL is targeting about 50 Pastamania outlets by the end of 2012.

Smita Patil, Manager-Marketing, ERVL, says, “We plan to open our outlet in Pune by the first week of February 2008. The Mumbai stand-alone outlet will open by April 2008”.

Currently, Pastamania outlets are operational in cities like Gurgaon and Ahmedabad. The company offers pastas, pizzas, salads, soups and desserts. “We have to create a menu that will be accepted by the Indian audience. Therefore, we have Indianised the menu by adding options like paneer (cottage cheese),” says Patil. The group has also considered meal offerings as per location; for example, the Ahmedabad outlet serves only vegetarian options and Jain meals to consumers.

For outlets at food courts, ERVL will take cover space for 70-150 people, depending upon location. It targets space for 120 people at its stand alone outlets.

To gain awareness, ERVL has chalked out special discounts for students as well as festive offers. The group is concentrating on developing Pastamania, but is keen to bring in other chains without an Indian presence.
