ATLANTA, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlanta-based Pan Asian fast casual franchise, Tin Drum Asiacafe, announced today its plans to exhibit at two late April events in Orlando – Retailer One on One on April 25th and Franchise Expo (booth #414) on April 26-27th – both located at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. Presence at these two regional expos is a part of the concept's new growth strategy to target the central Florida market for franchise and real estate development opportunities.

"The Tin Drum brand melds perfectly with the diversity and energy of Orlando," says Tin Drum founder and CEO, Steven Chan. "There are very few Pan-Asian franchise concepts, so we are truly looking forward to engaging with the central Florida franchise and real estate communities – and eventually carving out a true niche in this market."

Founded in 2003 near Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Tin Drum offers a proven concept with sound financial performance and a compact store layout that reduces both initial build out costs and on-going operating costs compared to many other fast casual restaurant franchises. Each franchised unit features a diverse Asian menu and state-of-the-art self-ordering kiosks, equipped with health-based software to help guests order based on specific dietary goals.

The company currently operates 13 corporate and franchised locations in Georgia and Alabama and is actively seeking qualified multi-unit operators in Orlando and across central Florida. Prospective franchisees must have a minimum net worth of $500,000 and liquid assets of at least $250,000 per unit.

Tin Drum also recently announced the opening of its 13th unit in Roswell, Georgia. For franchise information, visit www.TinDrumFranchise.com.
