Wagamama has signed a franchise deal to open its first store in Oman.

The chain has become the seventh group to sign with Bin Mirza International for openings in Oman.

Simon Cope, Global Brand Director at wagamama said: “Our approach with regards to franchising has been to look for partners that have the right mix of experience and success with great restaurants. BMI is a perfect fit, a trusted name in the business associated with bringing exceptional dining concepts to live. I look forward to adding Oman to the list of addresses where our signature Japanese-style cuisine is served.”

Other BMI franchises include Nando’s, Spun Candy, Second Cup, CinnZeo bakeries, BreadTalk bakery and Steak Escape Grill.
