The most successful Croatian franchise, Surf’n’Fries, which was started by Rijeka pair Andrija Čolak and Denis Polić, have opened its first store in Russia…

Launched in 2009 in Croatia, Surf’n’Fries has quickly expanded with franchises opening up in Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Ireland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania, Montenegro, Macedonia, Norway, Vietnam, Iran and now Russia.

The first store in Russia is located at one of Moscow’s busiest train stations. By the end of the year Surf’n’Fries will open two outlets at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. Over the next 5 years a further 300-400 Surf’n’Fries outlets are expected to open across Russia and Kazahstan.

“We are always trying something different and creative, and Russia has the greatest potential of all the 16 countries in which we have ever entered”, said Andrija Čolak.

Last year Surf’n’Fries presented their new oil free technology, which they claim solves the problem of notorious unhealthy fast food items by only using air to make fries, chicken nuggets, mozzarella sticks and other Surf’n’Fries specialty products. In 2015 Čolak and Polić won an award in America for the most promising young franchise business, beating more than 300 franchises from 38 countries.
