We’ve all heard of the robot servers in and around the city, but here’s something even more amazing: Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, aka a dumpling vending machine franchise, is coming to Vancouver.

Founded in 2021 by New York restaurateur Stratis Morfogen, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop offers 32 unique flavors of dumplings around the clock.

The quick service restaurant concept has a contactless ordering system through a vending machine (vending machine vibes) where customers get food from sstate-of-the-art temperature-controlled food lockers.

The pieces are inspired by classic diner dishes and come in varieties such as Philly cheesesteak, cheeseburger, chicken parmesan and peanut butter and jelly.

The brand also offers a selection of spring rolls, bowls, soups and even dessert dumplings.

This concept is currently operating locations around New York, and now it’s officially coming to Canada.

The award-winning dumpling franchise has signed an eight-unit deal in Vancouver. This is Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s first international franchise deal, Dished has learned.

At the helm of this deal is franchisee Grace Lovret, originally from New York.

“After sampling the incredible food, I invited Stratis to be a guest on my podcast on iHeart Radio. Hearing Stratis talk about this incredibly innovative concept and his plans to expand into other national and international markets, I I knew this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” Lovret said.

“It’s an exciting time for Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, and I look forward to being a part of the brand’s international growth story and bringing the brand to one of my favorite places, Vancouver.”

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is coming to Vancouver in partnership with franchise development company Fransmart.

Fransmart is also behind brands like Halal guys, Curry Up Now and Duff’s Cakemix to name a few.

With this partnership, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop says it is aiming for rapid expansion with over 80 units in development and more international growth in the future as well.

The brand should have 250 units in development over the next two years.

“This will undoubtedly be the first of many international deals for the brand and we look forward to securing further deals to bring Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to even more Canadian territories,” Morfogen said.

“Grace’s strong business background makes her an ideal partner for our first venture outside of the United States.”

We’ll let you know as soon as we know the addresses of all Brooklyn Dumpling Shop locations. Stay tuned!
