Great Companies: How was your initial years? Kindly brief your journey. Parth Gheewala: -For being completely naive in F&B & Hospitality Industry, things were pretty challenging initially but our passion for entrepreneurship and with a deep love & knowledge for food, we could sail those rough waters. With a lot of Research, we finalised the concept of our Restaurant which was to bring Gourmet Cuisines & Fusion Food which was completely new thing in Vadodara at that time, however, we were unaware that this concept will bring challenge for us. From finding right staff to cost management to introducing offbeat cuisine like Thai-Mediterranean to the people of Vadodara was quite arduous as not many were adoptive to its taste. However, with persistence and positive approach, we could give immersive dining experience to our patrons and soon, our hard work and creativity paid off when we got a recognition in one of the esteemed online platflorm "Curly Tales" for our unique Fusion Food & Hospitality. Not only this, but we also got a breakthrough when we were approached for a franchise in a metropolitan Bengaluru. Though it was new challenge to set up a franchise outlet and manage it successfully, our excitement and our hard work knew no bounds, and soon within a year, we opened our first successful franchise in Bengaluru.
