P.F. Chang’s (Scottsdale, Ariz.) has opened a new restaurant in Bangalore’s airport, its first locale in India. The company also plans to open locations in Mumbai, Delhi and other major cities in India, which recently surpassed China to become the world’s most populous country.

“We’re thrilled to welcome India as the next country in our network of global locations,” said Kristen Briede, President of Global Brands & Retail at P.F. Chang’s. “As we enter our 30th year in business, it couldn’t be a better time to invest in our growth and share the P.F. Chang’s experience with even more guests.”

The restauranteur is teaming with franchisee partner Gourmet Investments Private Limited (GIPL), a Bharti Family Office Business, and HMSHost, part of Dufry Group, on its expansion in India. In addition to the now-open eatery in Terminal 2 of the Bangalore International Airport operated by HMSHost, P.F. Chang’s expansion will soon include a GIPL-run locale in Mumbai. GIPL also plans to launch locations in Delhi National Capital Region in 2024.

“As we continue to scale our international business and growth in new markets, we look forward to establishing long-term partnerships with new franchisees and are committed to providing ongoing guidance and support,” said Rafik Farouk, Senior Director of Business Development at P.F. Chang’s.

The company opened its first international locations in Mexico and Kuwait in 2009 and has since opened more than 90 restaurants in 22 countries and more than 200 locations in the United States. Additional restaurant openings planned for 2023 and 2024 include Guyana, Salt Lake City International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Shepard Air Force Base near Wichita Falls, Texas.
