In 1996 RK Franchise Consultancy started to develop home-grown Companies. Thirsty?, a business offering fresh fruit juices and shakes, was the Company first development client. As proof of a lasting relationship based on mutual trust and confidence, Thirsty? has remained in relation with RK and ten years later, the Company which owns Thirsty? rehired us to develop their Mooon Café Franchise.
