In an exclusive interview with Franchise India, Harshil Jitendra Amin, Co-Founder and Owner of Patels Chhappanbhog, talks about the journey of the brand, opening the Sweet & Farsan Shop in 1989 to Restaurant, Banquet Hall and serving IRCTC Trains and Postal Food Contracts and finally landing in 2018 with Cloud Kitchens.

Harshil Jitendra Amin launched Cloud Kitchens in April 2018 with a strong belief that 'good food can excite people'. The aim was to enhance the Indian palate by building a large and scalable Cloud Kitchen in the country, thereby, providing great quality food at an affordable price.
