How to Start an Indian Restaurant Business

  • 77 expert advise

Food is something one can't stay away with; we also love to taste variety of food around the world. Indian foods are widely popular in an around US and UK, Indian dishes are healthy and spicy too. Looking into current needs one can easily say this business has lots of scope to grow.

Fact: Food, no one person can live without it. Ergo, there is a need.
Fact: In the US alone, people outnumber food establishments by no less than seven digits. Ergo, the demand is way beyond great.

So then, if the need is basic and demand is considerable, how come quite a number restaurants end up folding after a bad run? What went wrong? The answer to this conundrum is quite simple and can be summed up with just one word--expectation. Simply put, the successful restaurant meets the expectations of its target market while the unsuccessful restaurant does not.

How does a wannabe restaurateur avoid this pitfall then? The answer to this can again be summed up with just one word--homework. Sufficient preparation and thorough market research is a must in starting a restaurant business.

Another fact, no one restaurant has a universal appeal. It is impossible to grab hold of the full 100% of the market. Attempting such a mammoth goal will only result to failure. The market’s taste and preference is as diverse as it is wide. Realistically speaking, a restaurateur can only tap around five to ten percent of the total consumer population pie.

Undaunted? Good. That’s a big chunk as it is so there’s no cause for alarm. Now the next step is for you to think of a restaurant concept. Nothing comes to mind? Here’s a suggestion. Why not try Indian cuisine?

Indian food has been in existence for several centuries and has evolved through time to uphold the symbol of Indian culture. It is known for its intricate blending of exotic spices, veggies, and meat to create one truly delectable dish. History and flavor, that’s pretty hard to top. It’s no wonder Indian restaurants have grown in popularity over the years.

    If you’re not familiar with the cuisine, here’s a rundown of some interesting bits that you can use as a selling point:
  • The spices used in Indian dishes are meant to enhance the main ingredient and not the other way around. A complete Indian meal consists of at least two main course dishes. These are complimented with staples such as rice and bread (roti).
  • Curry is not the be all and end all of an Indian dish. Other favored spices include, chillies, saffron, ghee, tamarind, coconut, mustard. Collectively, these spices are called Garam Masala. This is distinct to every household and restaurant and serves as the backbone of the dish.
  • Not only is Indian cuisine flavorful and delicious, it is healthy and nutritious as well. Most dishes are made up mostly of fruits and vegetables. The idea that Indian cuisine is fatty, rich, and oily is a definite misconception.
  • The spices used in Indian cuisine are not as exotic as it seems. In other words, they are not hard to find. This could be the case before, but no longer. Indian spices are readily available in most supermarkets. Further, most Indian dishes do not require special cooking equipment so setting up your kitchen can be done easily enough.

    We've moved here from the UK and before that, Africa and we love indian food. Impossible to get here in a restaurant, but there are three shops here that sell indian ingredients. There is quite a large expat UK population here that is dying for indian food and we're interested in investing the entire fiasco that might be involved in starting up a restaurant here. We're in Northern italy, and there are loads of UK pilots (and families), EU commission and american families here, so it might be quite a good venture - as we all love italian food but crave something different as well. We would not, quite frankly, appeal to italians, but rather to all the expats that live here. Any advice???

    Dear sirs/Madams, I am here in Canada, there are many Indian restaurants in Toronto city ON Canada. As people in Canada have no time, they do not know how to cook, so they always prefer to buy ready to eat products. My question is : what kind of product would you suggest, to be packed in plastic bags/container with a shelf life and expiry date, which will be put on super market shelves or coolers? Later when the consumer buys it and take it to Home, it should be ready with minimum work or micro wave heating. Do you have any idea about such a product, please email. Thanks Ray
