Big profits come in small packages. Those who have big dreams to venture into business but are constrained due to lack of capital, Kwickies brings you an option worth investing in

The kiosks and carts format was started in 1976 in Boston, US, but then the concept did not gained popularity until 1980. Since then, it has grown steadily. The concept of organized kiosks and carts emerged in India recently, but it has become a popular business concept in a short duration. Riding on the similar concept and witnessing a lot of potential in quick serving food industry, Kwickies took its inception in 2016 after entering into MOU with Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. The concept has been launched by dynamic and industry expert entrepreneurs, which is the culmination of their sustained and rigorous effort over the years. These entrepreneurs had envisioned this concept keeping in mind its affordability, taste, convenience, hygienic food and time invested on food purchase and keeping in mind the average Indian spend, this concept was conceived.

After years of research and toiling, Kwickies is developed to make a difference in the ready-to-eat food industry. S. G. Prakash Rao Sathe, Managing Director, Kwickies, talks about his entrepreneurial voyage and how investing in Kwickies will get quicker yet healthy profits.
