With modern innovative food processing techniques in blend with traditional methods and flavor profiles, the start-up envisions an impact on the accessibility of the food culture of Odisha.
The start-up founder Sourabh Khandelwal has announced that the first outlet will be opened in February 2023 in Bhubaneshwar to start with the local reception impact of the food, which will then be tailored for further expansion within other states and countries in the coming future.
The food chain’s menu has made traditional food palatable in a modern setting that promotes local culture not only within the country but internationally as well. Top priority is given to a positive food experience that makes the food approachable to a mass audience while maintaining authentic traditional flavors.
