Local restaurant Punjabi Kadhai has been winning hearts all over India. Recently this restaurant was nominated for the Best Restaurant of East India non-metro city. The award ceremony was hosted by the Firm Franchise India.
In an interview conducted by the website, Owners of Punjabi Kadhai, Jaspal Bindra and Divya Bindra spoke about their passion and their future plans. “I remember someone came to our country and tasted Indian food, he said that it tastes better in my country. They taste better because they make it right from scratch and this is where we are missing. So I started with my restaurant with making things from scratch instead of using any kind of artificial products. The whole idea was started to serve people authentic food which do not harm their body.”
On specifying the uniqueness of their product Mr. Bindra said, “When we see smile at people’s face and when we are called to serve the President of India that is where our ecstasy is. The feeling of serving authenticity is beyond the world. Apart from turmeric and red chilli powder, everything is made in our kitchen. We make sure to keep that natural taste in the food so it could depict our culture. There is always a continuous innovation in our menu to kill monotony but we make sure that whatever we make should be culturally rooted.”
Talking about their future plans, he said ” We have already expanded in a vertical of catering. At the moment, we are getting softwares and systems all at place. We are looking for leaderships who can share the same passion we have. Once we got those leaderships, we’ll definitely expand to the cities like Sikkim. We keep getting the investors but sometimes the process and procedures are not right and replicating those becomes a hassle. Punjabi Kadhai is our baby and now the time has come to leave the hands of baby so that he can grow. I also got one offer from Russia as there are not many Indian restaurants over there and I’m considering about that if things are feasible there.”
Franchise India has initiated to provide a platform to entrepreneurs who want to taste success in the domestic and international food service business where different measures of food business can be discussed.
