Franchise India is organising Indian Restaurant Congress 2011 with Entrepreneur India Advisors and CIFTI-FICCI as the knowledge partners. The two day event will be held at Hotel Claridges in New Delhi on August 20-21 2011. It is a national level conference supported by National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) where renowned chefs, restaurant operators, and F&B experts will discuss the growing consumer demand for quality dining experiences.
The event will draw a great experience as restaurant operators and finance experts will discuss their unique leadership approach and decipher trends to lay out a roadmap for changing the paradigm of restaurants.
Elaborating on the current Indian restaurant market scenario, Gaurav Marya, President, Franchise India said, “It is merely a matter of few years before the Indian urban moves from eating out once in two weeks to eating out twice in one week. This clearly speaks volumes about the huge opportunities that exist in the eating out market. Thus, the call of the industry is obvious; we need to build capabilities and bridge the gap and create the need before the necessity of it arises. The Indian Restaurant Congress 2011 is an initiative on our part to bring together experts to deliberate and discuss upon the need for an expansion in the restaurant industry and address the growing consumer demand for quality dining experiences.”
Speakers like Sanjay Coutinho (COO and CEO, Barista Lavazza), Kabir Advani (CEO, Bercos), Kunal Kapoor (Celebrity Chef, The Leela Kempinski), Niren Choudhary (MD, Yum!

This event is a platform to provide the attendees with actionable insights that will help them better align their current and potential resources with business objectives.”
