Nikunj Sheth, CEO.
How long have you been working with Sandella's, and what inspired you to join it?
It’s been two years. Sandella's unique concept and healthy food inspired me to go for it and I became the master franchisee of Sandella's for pan India.
Food is the largest sector in the franchise industry. What makes Sandella's stand out from the other café and restaurant franchises?
It’s FRESH, HEALTHY, and DELICIOUS.
Is Sandella's succeeding in looking for franchise partners?
What is the number one piece of advice you would give to a first-time franchisee?
Opt for unique, healthy concept options which are low on investment and high on returns.
What is the outlook for the food franchise industry as a whole for the next year in India i.e. is it growing?
It’s the fastest growing industry with an annual turnover of 1.5 billion $ in India.
What are Sandella's goals/targets for the next 12 months?
To have a minimum of 50 outlets.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
All those opting for the junk food concept…don't go for it, because in a few years junk food is going to be attacked by the Indian government who will levy heavy tax on it. It has already started in some states of India.
Has advertising/working with Franchise Asia been satisfactory for you?
We are thankful to Franchise Asia and give them five stars for great support, advice, and being such a fantastic advertising partner with a very good transparency in payment terms and prompt response to any query. We would suggest everyone to opt for Franchise Asia because in this industry there are many companies who commit and charge you heavily in advance but don't fulfil their promise. Best wishes to Franchise Asia for being such a great advertising partner.
