The payback period ranges from 24 to 36 months. It depends on the region, macro- and microeconomic market index.


From €2,000 per 1 m². Investments depend on the country, city, and condition of the leased premises. We help choose premises that do not require significant investments. Opening a restaurant with the Nai franchise is twice as fast and 20% more financially advantageous than doing it independently.

1. Filling out the application form on the website, after which you will receive a message from our manager.
2. Meeting-interview with the CEO and receipt of the full financial project model.
3. Payment of the initial fee and signing of the contract.
4. Agreement on the location and start of work on launching your establishment.

From the first month of operation – 5% of turnover.

On average, it takes 5-6 months from signing the lease agreement to opening the restaurant. The main factor affecting the overall term is the search for premises for the restaurant, its condition, and renovation work.

That's a sign:
