With people increasingly growing health conscious, business of fresh salad has emerged as a lucrative business option. The target customer could be anyone, especially office goers who don’t have many options when at office and more often than not have to settle for greasy, fatty food.
Finding the right location is the most crucial challenge in this business. The other challenge often faced by entrepreneurs is logistics.
Is this for me
A degree in hotel management or experience in a multi-cuisine restaurant helps in setting up this venture.
“Earlier people weren’t very health conscious which is why we had to limit ourselves to posh localities only,” Ranjan Agarwal, Salad Chef.
How it was done
Salad Chef, a fresh salad store, was launched by two brothers, Sanjay and Ranjan Agarwal and a friend Rakesh Brahmi in the year 1993. Sanjay, a chef at Taj and Ranjan, a food technologist started this venture with the aim to provide fresh and healthy food to their customers. Their business saw a slow start as people weren’t very health conscious back then; however, the scenario is changing for good and their venture is scaling new heights.
