The company plans to take its Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand PICO Express to all major metros and Tier I places as Delhi and Bangalore in the next few years, he added.
"Our FMCG products are currently in Delhi and Mumbai, but we plan to expand that reach rapidly over the next couple of years to reach over 10,000 retail stores across India," Jaiswal said.
Nilgai Foods currently operates a chain of 11 PICO Express outlets in Mumbai.
