Karahi Boys is the premier Pakistani Restaurant with 7 locations in Canada and now our first corporate location in Houston, Texas in the US. Founded in 2018, the Karahi Boys experience is centered around freshly made Karahis (veg & non-veg), BBQ & more paired with great service in a refined casual atmosphere. We pride ourselves in offering our guests contemporary dining that’s refined and friendly.

As part of our dynamic team, our franchisees have complete operational support; including comprehensive training, marketing & advertising, and centralized purchasing. We allow franchise owners to focus on their day-to-day business knowing that there is a team of experts working to support their success.


Your initial investment to acquire a license to operate a Karahi Boys is $50,000. For this initial investment, you will receive your initial training, support, development assistance and operating manuals necessary to start up the restaurant. Your total investment will vary from project to project, but an estimated range is from $800,000 to $1,500,000. The following are key factors that will determine the amount:
  • a conversion of an existing restaurant versus building from the ground up
  • the cost of development and construction in your particular market
  • the local and general economy
  • the efficiency of your project manager
  • Our Development Department can prepare an estimate based on your specific circumstances.
The royalty fee is 6% of gross sales. This fee provides you with the use of Karahi Boys brand name and operating system as well as ongoing support, training, research and development.
The marketing assessment is 1% of gross sales. This is used to promote and build brand recognition of Karahi Boys name.
Your return will be dependent on a number of factors: your skill and abilities, your competition, interest rates, the economy, inflation, labour and supply costs, lease terms and the marketplace in general.
Our franchise organization is designed to provide you with the tools and support you need to make your restaurant the first choice for people who love Pakistani food. The support begins before you open your restaurant with a development team who will assist in creating Karahi Boys environment, followed by a training team to train your management and staff on how to provide your guests with Karahi Boys experience. Once your restaurant is open, follow up support will be provided to insure that Karahi Boys systems and specifications are in place. Ongoing support will be provided with respect to accounting, marketing, menu development and human resources.
No. However, any experience you have gained in any area of food service always helps. More than anything else, your sound business sense and your compatibility with Karahi Boys high standards are what will make you an ideal candidate. If you don’t have full service restaurant experience, we insist that you have a day-to-day operator with experience; ideally Karahi Boys experience.
Training for you and your staff is thorough. We will train your management team and key staff at one of the corporate locations. We will send a hands-on support opening team to assist in training your staff. Besides travel, accommodation and meals, additional costs for the opening team are minimal. You can open your restaurant with the confidence and knowledge that you have received adequate training to do things Karahi Boys way, with a support system and people to help you.
You will find that Karahi Boys has taken care of every aspect of Karahi Boys experience for you, including: interior design, layout, menu, recipes, health and safety standards, food suppliers, product specifications and advertising. Your adherence to these standards is what will make your Karahi boys franchise a success. The consistency and quality of these standards not only creates and reinforces the brand, but also insures that Karahi Boys guests have Karahi Boys experience, at any Karahi Boys location, each and every time.
The Karahi Boys will provide you with assistance in finding the best site possible. The detailed site criteria that we have compiled will help contribute to the success of your Karahi Boys restaurant. Although Karahi Boys must give final approval, you are responsible for site selection.
The application process from the date of your initial inquiry to the executive approval is from two to six weeks. Once your application has received executive approval, the time frame to opening day will depend on whether it is a conversion of an existing restaurant or a new construction. This can take from 3 to 8 months, and will depend largely on the time required for building and permit applications in your jurisdiction.
