Although franchise firms account for a small percentage of total Indian businesses, the franchise industry is significant. With a population of over one billion people, India is becoming a key force in the global economy and a rich field for retail and business development investment.
The food and beverage business, which is the largest volume in the franchise group, has recovered the fastest from the pandemic. Tea and coffee franchises, ice cream franchises, and fast-food franchises have all performed well in the past.
These Food and Beverage Industry Business Lines have virtually doubled in the last few months compared to the previous 12-month total business. Restaurant, pizza, and burger franchises are preparing to expand.
CHAI-VAAI CAFÉ is a new and rapidly expanding brand that offers a variety of hot teas, coffees, sandwiches, hamburgers, pasta and lasagna, toasties, Maggi, wraps, and pizzas. It has a special area called the “Maa Menu” that caters to people who are far away from home with an absolute rendition of home-cooked meals.
India’s Foodie City INDORE or MP09 (Madhya Pradesh) is home to CHAI-VAAI CAFÉ. The first outlet is located in Bhawarkuan, which is the hub of students. The brand is expanding in Vadodara, Nagpur, Dalhousie, and Ahmadabad, with ambitions to extend across India.
