A mother-son venture in the culinary space, The Bohri Kitchen has raised funds from Venture Catalysts, though the exact amount raised has not been revealed yet. The Bohri Kitchen is a startup specializing in the Dawoodi Bohra community cuisine which has its own unique flavor and specialty. The promoters are Munaf Kapadia and his mother and they had begun with a delivery kitchen and have since expanded the business to include a dine-in restaurant.
According to a report in The Economic Times, the angels who picked their shares in this round of funding include Anuj Puri of Anarock Consultants, Abhishek Agarwal of Rockstud Capital, Anirudh Damani of Artha India Ventures, F&B veteran Riyaaz Amlani and food chef Rahul Akerkar. There were a few others as well.
The Bohri Kitchen promoters have indicated that the funds now raised will go towards establishing a larger central kitchen in addition to their existing infrastructure. The venture is now 3 years old, and already, Munaf Kapadia has been recognized for his contribution when he bagged the â€™30 under 30â€™ award of Forbes.
The Bohri Kitchen or TBK, offers legacy family recipes and a home-made food experience to their customers, which is not very large in numbers, but would definitely be appreciative of what they are getting.
â€śWhen I first thought of the idea that would materialise into The Bohri Kitchen, I was confident of the viability of such a concept in the market. The response that weâ€™ve had so far has just strengthened that belief,â€ť ET quotes Munaf as saying.
Anuj Puri, who lead this round of funding TBK, has expressed his hope that the startup will go places with its past record and a successful business model. â€śThe brand has grown from strength to strength, setting up a delivery kitchen and slowly expanding into the restaurant vertical as well. We are confident that TBK will continue to set new benchmarks in the experiential dining space and garner exponential success,â€ť he told Economic Times.
