Our vision is to become the number 1 Pan Asian inspired food-to-go provider in the UK delivery market!
The restaurant food delivery sector has exploded over the past few years with third party apps – most notably Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats – vying for business and reporting significant gains for those businesses using them.
At WOKSTA® we have two core models to choose from…
A dark kitchen operation
with no customer facing
premises can offer an
extremely low cost
franchise model benefiting
from low rent, labour
and running costs.
A quality food to go or
delivery offering at affordable
everyday pricing. Fresh
packaged for delivery
freshness and restaurant
stir fry superstars
Delivery & walk ins
All the benefits of a dark
kitchen operation but with a
very small customer facing
entrance to allow
customers to walk in,
order and wait for
fresh food to be prepared.
Exploring the positives & challenges
By far, the most common form of delivery is the traditional model, in which the consumer places an order with the local pizza parlour or Chinese restaurant (although many other kinds of restaurants, particularly in urban areas, now offer delivery) and waits for the restaurant to bring the food to the door.
However, as in so many other sectors, the rise of digital technology is re-shaping the market. Consumers accustomed to shopping online through apps or websites, with maximum convenience and transparency, increasingly expect the same experience when it comes to ordering dinner.

Final enquiry STEP!
We will ask you to fill out our application form. Together, we will look at whether WOKSTA® is a good fit for you and look at potential locations for your unit as well as its earnings potential.
NB We will not seek to do business with you when we first meet – please leave your cheque book at home!
We proceed in this way because we believe that joining us will be one of the more important decisions of your life. It should not be rushed. We do not formalise any relationship or accept deposits, holding fees or statements of intent at this stage.
Step 1 of stage 2
Should you now want to engage we will give you the Heads of Terms Franchise Agreement to consider. Meanwhile our Directors will give your application full consideration. If we feel able to proceed with you, and you have taken suitable legal advice, we will invite you to pay a territory holding fee of £3,000. This fee can be refunded if you later choose not to go ahead, minus any consultation fees that may have been incurred. This territory fee will then be taken off the initial franchise fee on your first store.
When your engagement fee is received, we will help you engage with our approved agents to help you locate the right property in the right area in your chosen location. Once you have found the site you would like, and our Director has approved its location, the development programme starts. We create a design plan of your shop and create a list of what is required and what success looks like! This will help you understand the full
cost required, and to secure any additional funding from a bank should you need to.
At this stage the franchise fee is paid and contracts are signed, You will then join the training course at the WOKSTA® Centre of excellence for up to a two-week period. Next comes the period where together we dovetail the site work, staffing, equipment purchases, fitting out and stocking-up.
