Pum's Kitchen has been operating for three years and in that time it has won many foodies hearts. We are now wishing to spread the love and help make your restaurant dreams come true with a licensed Pum's Kitchen restaurant.

Pum's Kitchen began trading in its current location in March 2015 and was mostly unheard of on the Sunshine Coast. Early in 2016 Pum's Kitchen received its first five star review on Trip Advisor. In 2017 Pum's Kitchen received its first of two Trip Advisor Certificates of Excellence. Pum's Kitchen now regularly achieves the distinction of being the highest rated Thai restaurant on the Sunshine Coast on Trip Advisor. Among other accolades, this is our favourite.

Pum's Kitchen brings Home Style Thai cooking to the food court of the Big Top Shopping Centre and its concept has proven to be a hit with its customers. Other exciting concepts are available, from a fully licenced sit down restaurant to a quick and easy to run food truck or trailer, your business dreams are about to come true.


Choose your own location. We believe that common sense is still around, you wouldn't want to open your own Pum's Kitchen right next to ours now would you? Location assistance is offered and we will work closely with you when choosing where to put your restaurant.

How big or small, it's your choice. Pum's Kitchen currently operates in 22 m2 and could easily run as a food trailer with only 8 m2. For a sit down, fully licensed restaurant, we recommend a kitchen size of 30 m2 and a service area of at least 50 m2, bigger would be better, it depends on your location.


The initial licence fee is $30,000 (exc GST) and includes all the training you need at our Big Top restaurant. If required we can also provide some assistance for you in developing your own business plan, finding your location (we get plenty of offers for locations) and drawing up plans for your restaurant.

We have finance options available through third party providers if required. We have good contacts when it comes to shop fitters and other professional services as well.
