Miso Group, from chef Adria Wu and Dubai-based investor Tamer Bazzari, are bringing two new concepts to the UK.

Maple Street Eats will be a London-based, delivery-only concept that will serve as a sister brand to Wu’s six-strong natural food and juice bar group maple&CO.

Operation:Falafel, founded in Dubai, will see orders collected in contactless lockers opened by QR code.

The concept will launch its first London site later this year, which will embrace new technology, with plans for ten Operation:Falafel UK franchises by 2024.

Virtual brand Maple Street Eats will initially only be available in west London through Deliveroo, UberEats and Just Eat, with hopes to expand it across the rest of the capital by the end of the year.

Serving “feel-good food” inspired by global flavours, dishes include rice bowls, salads, plant burgers and macaroni cheese.

Wu said: “We are delighted to build on the success of maple&CO and the launch of Maple Street Eats enables us to better service the strong customer base we have grown over the last six years.

“The time is right to innovate and offer consumers convenient alternatives and we’re really excited to realise this with the UK launch of Operation:Falafel too.”
