Tin Drum Asian Kitchens are inspired by the energy and atmosphere of the streets of Asia. Founder, Steven Chan, began Tin Drum in 2003 to bring people from all walks of life together to share in a meal that was both tantalizing and comforting. We aim to design a unique experience that’s unlike any fast-casual restaurant. We pour our passion into every dish by combining comfort food with exotic flavors. We’ve created an adventurous menu of designer cuisine that includes options for every taste.

The fact is, there’s nothing in the fast-casual category that compares to Tin Drum. Other franchises can’t compete — not on price, and certainly not on flavor. We set the standard when it comes to fresh-to-order pan-Asian. We lead in our industry not only because of our flavorful dishes, but because our operations are seamless, high-tech and easy to execute. We are looking for passionate foodies like us to join our team.

With those 15 years of experience, and 11 locations across the US, we have the proven success with plenty of room for people like you to help us grow. And with Asian and fast-casual as two of the most popular and fastest growing segments in the restaurant sector, you can feel confident in your investment.

Our restaurants are typically between 1,800 and 2,200 sq. feet (smaller than most meaning less overhead) of Asian inspired theater, with bold colors and images, and open shelving stocked, market-style, with noodles, proprietary sauces, and other ingredients used in cooking. Some locations also include a small set of retail product offerings featuring a variety of cool, exotic, and unique items from around the world.
