Tipping Mr Pink Pvt Ltd owners of Fusion Burger Chain  “Burger Singh “ have secured additional investment  taking the total fund raise to $1 million in FY 2016. Existing investors like Ashvin Chadda, Rahul Singh (Beer café), Dheeraj Jain (Redcliffe Capital), Rannvijay Singh (MTV Roadies) Capt. Salim Sheikh (ex -Sayaji Hotels Ltd) and Avtar Monga (COO of IDFC Bank) participated in the round that closed in August. Money raised will be used to support Burger Singh’s rapid expansion beyond its current stomping ground of south Delhi and Gurgaon. Burger Singh is eyeing a ‘Series A’ round of US$5million at a later stage for further expansion in the country.

Founded in November 2014 by Kabir Jeet Singh and his childhood friend Nitin Rana both with vast experience in the F&B industry. Burger Singh is the first homegrown burger chain which is looking to make its mark in the countries fast growing burger Market, which is dominated by larger American corporations. Unlike its rivals, Burger Singh is looking to open smaller outlet with multiple locations predominantly focused on delivery and takeaway customers. This makes the model capex light with conservative rentals and very lean operations. Thus reducing the risk per location.

In less than two years, the brand has built an extensive presence in the National Capital Region of India and currently has 8 outlets in the city. The company is now looking to expand aggressively with a Franchise Owned Company Operated model in the city. The management expects to expand the total number of outlets to 26 by the end of the year.

"We are very impressed by the vision and energy of Kabir, his success in introducing a new dining experience to the customer, the unique positioning of Burger Singh, and the quality of the management and operations team. We see strong potential in the Company and are looking forward to working closely with the team to help ensure the continued success of Burger Singh," said Dheeraj Jain of Redcliffe Capital.

Kabir Jeet Singh, CEO of Burger Singh said, "From the day of opening our first outlet until today, I have been delighted and humbled by the consumer response to our product. That our vision, enthusiasm and prospects have been highly recognized by our investors who have backed us repeatedly both financially and strategically. Burger Singh has undergone phenomenal growth in a very short period, which validates our unique positioning. Now that we have carefully and deliberately built a robust foundation of systems and processes, the aim would be to reach a wider audience geographically.”
