The fine casual Indian franchise that’s changing the way people enjoy classic Indian flavors has been named to Entrepreneur’s annual Franchise 500 list for the first time, placing #430 on the list.


The Franchise 500 is an annual ranking of the top 500 franchising companies in the United States and Canada, compiled by Entrepreneur magazine. Brands who make the Franchise 500 are evaluated on five pillars of their business: Costs & Fees, Size & Growth, Support, Brand Strength, and Financial Strength & Stability.


Interested in why Curry Up Now made this prestigious list? Let’s look at each of the pillars:


  1. Costs & Fees

Curry Up Now has a conversion-friendly design with efficient systems in place behind the scenes. This allows franchisees to build at a low entry cost in the right space. Mortar And Pestle, Curry Up Now’s bar concept, allows franchisees to maximize potential profits if they decide to add on to their buildout. Franchisees have a greater control over what they spend to open their own Curry Up Now versus other brands.

IN the few weeks before opening, Curry Up Now will send members of their leadership team to a new location to train the staff. The care that Curry Up Now franchisees receive from the top is unmatched in the industry.
