Followed by Kronfol’s outstanding success and popularity in Lebanon, the demand to expand was at an all-time high. Wissam decided it was the perfect opportunity to take Kronfol beyond borders and expand towards the rest of the region. In doing so, he approached Francorp Middle East for support and assistance in developing their franchise program.

As part of the first phase of expansion, Kronfol is seeking potential franchisors within the GCC, specifically Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait as the prominent markets. In the phases after, Kronfol will be expanding across other international markets.

Wissam is confident in Francorp’s proven system, ability and experience to help them in establishing Kronfol as a Lebanese food landmark in every city around the world. “We have been receiving leads from all across the GCC, but we have been extremely selective in perusing any of them until we had all the systems needed to support this expansion. So now, I’m confident to say that ‘We are ready to expand!’”, Breidy expresses.


Imad Charaf Eddine, Chairman of Francorp Middle East is pleased to have Kronfol become part of Francorp’s client list. “As Francorp, we are very excited to see franchises expand in the region such as Kronfol. Franchising is one of the most effective options which takes ambitious companies to new destinations and accelerate their expansion plans without direct investment in developing new branches, especially from emerging markets such as the Middle East.”

Kronfol is an exceptional concept and a franchise opportunity unlike any other; a beloved household name in Lebanon is now an exciting new development within the Middle East, ready to grow and become a beloved restaurant in every city.
