WHAT WE DO
Camile Thai is a healthy and sustainable fast-casual restaurant brand operating in the home delivery category which is poised for significant growth in the UK.
With 30+ restaurants and counting, Camile Thai is rapidly growing its sustainable and healthy business across different revenue models. Camile Thai has consistently won awards for Best Thai and Healthiest Takeaway every year within the Irish market. Camile now aims to continue to leverage that experience and knowledge further across London and the South of England.
Camile Thai believes that small acts lead to big change. We create delicious Thai inspired food and community activities for our conscious guests to support the balanced life they’re already leading. Making the Camile choice is a signifier of intention. We research emerging nutritional trends and collaborate with a team of talented chefs, to produce dishes our community expects. We find more sustainable ways for you to enjoy Camile, guilt-free.
We created an innovative food product that is perfectly tailored to holding its heat and quality during delivery. We also optimized our in-store service, increasing sales for dine-in, takeaway and collection, facilitating the lunch break for our guests. Each touchpoint of the customer’s journey is closely considered to create a world-class guest experience that leads the casual restaurant industry.
Since opening its first location in 2010, the business has expanded to 30+ locations through a combination of company-owned and franchised restaurants. Expansion in London currently exists. The Camile franchising model has been well-developed in Ireland and remains a winning business model. With single-unit and multi-unit franchisees growing our businesses at a steady rate, it’s an amazing time to be at Camile Thai.
With online food delivery and the on-demand economy set to increase to a hefty $200 billion in the next 4 years according to Forbes, Camile is well-positioned to flourish and thrive in this environment. We addressed our customers' expectations and market trends by building our brand new app, offering a flawless ordering service for home delivery and collection.
We put trust in our staff and in our workspaces. We recruit carefully, and it’s our ambition to create a culture of great service inspiring our team to think intuitively. This is how we build the best teams. Restaurants run their own driver fleet, while also maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with industry-leading aggregators. This two-tiered approach to delivery gives us a significant advantage over our competitors.
