CEO & Chief Trouble Maker Curry Up Now

Our Story

In 2009, Curry Up Now cofounder Akash Kappor and his wife were at a summer barbecue with some buddies, and came across a Time magazine, featuring a story about Roy Choi and food trucks. Akash read the story and thought, if Roy could do it, we could do it. So that very night he and his wife wrote up a five-minute business plan. Two weeks later they had a truck. There were no initial plans for restaurants. It was just: Let’s get a food truck going. The first day they had a line of 200 people, and Akash knew he was on to something.

People loved Curry Up Now’s understandable, accessible Indian fusion food. Indian burritos? Naughty Naan? Sexy fries? The public ate it up.
Curry Up Now is now the largest and fastest growing Indian fast casual restaurant chain in North America.
