Umesh Patel, an engineer by trade, created Pav Bhaji Hut based on a family business that originally started in 1969.  With the knowledge and operational experience gained from this initial venture, Umesh has been able to open a mobile food operation and centralized commissary in Northern California; the next project is to expand the business via franchising.

The system itself is well positioned and poised for growth with a proven track record and a highly experienced operations and management team. The business model is reasonably simple to operate and requires very limited staff (preferably, the franchisee alone).  All of the food is sourced from direct suppliers and the management and visionary principles are derived from Umesh Patel’s vast experience and business acumen.

The concept fits very well into today’s franchise marketplace. It is a business model that allows for a reasonable and wide range of initial investment options, as each franchisee will be responsible for their own site selection and build-out, with guidance from the Franchisor.  A franchisee can get into the business with all the required initial inventory and equipment – all for around $300,000 (although we will be keen on making sure they will be suitably capitalized). The business can be highly profitable and is a flexible and scalable business model, which would allow for a franchisee to add revenue and profitability in significant multiples as appropriate to operational capabilities and market size.

The franchise management company will be based out of Northern California which will be wholly owned by Umesh Patel, along with the existing company owned units.  We have one mobile unit and launched a new brick-and-mortar location in Fremont, CA. These operating locations will be used as the prototypes for the business model, menu, and operations and will help focus growth into select U.S. markets.

Through franchise development, Pav Bhaji Hut will have the ability to operate locations in new markets and areas without the cost and management responsibilities that would come with company-owned territories.  Because of the attractive potential return on investment, franchise development holds enormous potential. By building the brand and establishing the ability to deliver services to clients on an international basis, Pav Bhaji Hut will have the ability to be valued well into eight figures.
