Indian food delivery company Jubilant Foodworks (JFL) has agreed to buy an equity stake of 10.76% in Barbeque Nation Hospitality Ltd (BNHL).

The latest move comes as JFL, which operates Domino’s Pizza and Dunkin’ Donuts in India, embraces new cuisines.

JFL will invest approximately Rs920m ($12.5m) to acquire the required stake.

In an exchange filing, Jubilant Foodworks said: “Towards this end, the company has entered into a Share Subscription Agreement to acquire equity shares and a Restated Shareholders’ Agreement to regulate the rights and obligations of BNHL’s key shareholders.”

BNHL operates 138 Barbeque Nation restaurants across 73 cities in India and seven international Barbeque Nation restaurants.

It also operates Italian cuisine restaurants under the brand name Toscano.
