Panku street food brings together all the flavours of East and Southeast Asia to one place. From rich Japanese, punchy Korean, to even fresh Thai flavours, Panku has it all.

Panku street food Kiosks serve restaurant quality Sushi and East / South East Asian street food inside Asda stores across the UK.

A large number of kiosk employees have recognised just what a great deal this is and taken over their workplace as their own boss and are making great money!

The downside is that almost all of the available kiosks have now been sold! ONLY 25% of the original franchise locations are still available, so you are very close to missing out on what has to be the most popular and fast selling franchise opportunities in many years.

A great number stop and buy the Panku products, a number which is growing all the time. A typical supermarket sees an average of 4,000 customers per day so, in any given area, that is 10s of thousands of potential customers every week.

Panku street food kiosks have been offering customers an authentic taste of Japanese, Thai and Korean food since 2019. You may even have seen its colourful kiosks in your local Asda supermarket, as the business has partnered with the chain to serve exciting dishes across the UK.

Panku is all about big flavours, quality and innovation. It cares about the customer experience, and prepares all products on-site every day. People can choose their order from well-stocked shelves within the kiosk. The menu includes a range of different food options, from sushi rolls to chicken katsu curry and gyoza dumplings.

There are more than 125 Panku street food kiosks in Asda stores across mainland UK currently, but the Snowfox Group has plans to open up more locations in 2024 which they are also going to be franchising.

Who are Panku street food looking for?

Panku are looking for franchisees who will either, act as single kiosk owner/operators themselves, or who would like to own and operate multiple kiosk locations; they need people with the energy and passion that comes from a direct personal investment in the brand to really shine through to our customers.


Existing franchisees come from a range of backgrounds, and Panku street food embrace people from all walks of life. If you’ve got a can-do attitude and a hands-on approach to business, you could be perfect for the role. You should be prepared to work in your kiosk and manage its day-to-day operations, but experience in the street food or sushi sectors isn’t an absolute requirement; instead, you’ll need to be able to deliver quality customer service in a fast-paced environment.

Previous management and leadership experience, and the ability to demonstrate strong business acumen, and the skills required to lead and motivate a busy team are also seen as desirable attributes.

You’ll also receive a comprehensive training programme designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to make your new business a success.

The training takes place over the course of 2 to 3 weeks (depending on your experience) well in advance of you taking on your new kiosk.
