Curry Up Now is the largest and fastest growing Indian fast-casual restaurant, renowned for their innovative spin on traditional Indian cuisine, and now available as an affordable franchise! With authentic flavors at its core, they present their one-of-a-kind comfort “Indian street food” in an approachable format that supports many different diets.
Curry Up Now takes care of their customers and neighborhood vendors by using only clean ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. Their goal everyday: make delicious food that WOWS their guests, supports their employees, and gives back to the community. Founder and CEO, Akash Kapoor shares, “I firmly believe in bringing happiness to the world through food”.
Akash spent years perfecting Curry Up Now food and flavors which are shared with a professional commissary to produce the sauces, chutneys, and other goods. Rather than requiring franchisees to purchase higher priced food directly from the franchisor, Curry Up Now offers franchisees the ability to purchase the food directly from the commissary at the same price as the founders, giving franchisees even more opportunity to be profitable.

HOW AN ENTREPRENEUR FAMILY SECURED A 2-STATE 20-UNIT DEAL WITH ONE OF THE HOTTEST FAST CASUAL “TOP MOVERS & SHAKERS”
For over 35 years John Netto and his family have been successful entrepreneurs, philanthropists and active community members in Salt Lake City, Utah, when one day Curry Up Now’s innovative spin on traditional Indian cuisine and successful franchise business model caught their eye as the next big thing.
When they visited the corporate stores in San Francisco, CA, they were impressed by Curry Up Now operations which make it easy to deliver consistent high-quality food, but it was the unique menu items and flavors like nothing they have ever eaten before that motivated them to go beyond a 5-unit agreement and negotiate to be the franchisee of 20 Curry Up Now restaurants throughout Utah and Colorado.
John Netto explains, “Our family loves Indian food and Curry Up Now is unlike any other Indian concept out there; not just the menu, but even the presentation is differentiating. You might not know…
