Australian global food and beverage company Retail Food Group’s (RFG) Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar and Donut King are set to launch in the UK.

Under new master franchise agreements secured by Jabbar Mumtaz, about 250 Crust and 140 Donut King outlets will be opened in the country.

The first locations will open to the public in the next six to eight months.

RFG International chief executive Mike Gilbert said: “The UK is an important global market for RFG following the establishment of International Hubs in Australia, US and the Middle East.”

Jabbar Mumtaz added: “RFG and its Brand Systems have a great reputation, a quality product offering, and fantastic benefits for Partners and I look forward to working with the company and introducing locals to pizza and donuts like they’ve never experienced.”

RFG’s international operations are supported by a dedicated International division focused on the international presence.
