My Startup Idea: Vada Pav Stall – Phase I

September 27th, 2008 · 12 Comments

For a very long time now I been wanting to open a Vada Pav Stall! Yes nothing new about it. There are 10,000+ Vada Pav stalls in bombay doing pretty well and i was not doing anything different…

There are two places where i want to have one stall each, Bandra Kurla Complex and Kharghar…

Bandra Kurla Complex coz when i used to pass that place there was not even one eating joint! and same for Kharghar… my brother studied there and kept complaining about not even getting a Vada Pav…

So in Phase I i would want a Vada Pav Stall which will over a period of time start selling Sandwhiches and Cold drinks… Graduallly there will be grill sandwhiches and a fresh Juice counter…

As i am writing this i am thinking why not add Chaat counter and dosa counter to it over a period of one year 😉

So if you wondering if i am going to be sitting at these stalls… No i wont be… I will finance/Initiate the entire process… The actual running is what i will have to get someone to do…

Now before you  jump your horses… I am not opening one right away… Its just something i want to do for a long time and not even sure if i will ever do it 🙂

But if i do, everything will be on the house for you 😉

    Cool dream Kunal.

    But why be limited by space? Go with a vadapav van. That can be parked at the busiest spot.

    Cheaper than buying or renting a space.

    (I’ve always wanted to sell icecreams by van in Mumbai. It was sell like hot cakes in Mumbai’s hot weather. And we wouldn’t have to invest as much as say Baskins or someone…)

    It’s not that easy though, the BMC and local goons will make life hellish for you before you even start.
