$150k On Indiana Xpress
Indiana Curry House opened its third outlet, Indiana Curry Xpress, at the new $30 million Tappoo City complex in Lautoka last week.
The business engaged $150,000 investment for this project alone.
Head chef and restaurant manager Nathi Singh Negi said their business was doing well since the opening of their first outlet in Namaka, Nadi, in 2015.
He said the new outlet was a way of them giving back to the Fijian community.
The outlet is named Indiana Curry Xpress because of the high demand for a fast service from its customers.
“My vision in the Fijian culinary industry has been taking shape and here at Tappoo- City as well,” Mr Negi said.
“We are busy just like yesterday (last Saturday). I can see that all guests have a new experience which they have not had this chance before in Lautoka.
“I am looking forward to having as much success as my previous two restaurants. We want to provide the best food for the value to our guests.
“It is important to me that we maintain high standard in hygiene, food quality and value for the money.”
The eatery has employed seven staff, with four filling the chefs position and three front line staff.
They are likely to increase their employees because they will operate two shifts in the coming weeks.
Mr Negi said the developers had assured them to operate in the new complex before the Easter weekend.
“We are grateful to Tappoo’s for giving us space to be part of their family here at TappooCity and we won’t let anyone down.”
Indiana Curry House has two outlets, Indian Tandoori, operating in Namaka, Nadi and Indian Curry House in Cuvu, Nadroga, which opened in January, 2016, both boasting authentic Indian cuisines.
More operators at the TappooCity food court are expected to open their doors in coming weeks.
