Food For Thought - Bespoke Global Cuisines

I started my Entrepreneurial journey at the age of 16yrs, had a difficult childhood and was unable to complete m formal education. With the help of a friend started a brand for Indian wear, went onto learning Interior Design and Fashion Design professionally. I was raised by a single mother, and then grandparents, uncles and aunts. I kept the belief in myself alive, when people around me had lost hope. My only ambition was to prove myself and make my own identity. I owned a brand of Indian Bridal wear which was for retail and export. 2002 to 2010 was my garment career. I decided to shut shop and be a home mom to my 2 little kids - 11 and 5yrs. Started cooking for them and realized that the kitchen is my happy place. I am most excited cooking for my family. Took it up as a hobby to start a home chef brand and magically grew organically without any investment. From 2010 to 2016 it was an upward growth and gave me the vision to scaleup. 2017 I got into corporate catering, Out door catering, weddings and large events. Became the most well known name for Bespoke Catering. Won an award for top 10 women entrepreneurs and Best caterer of the year. In Covid I launched an online brand called Pockets and Bowls to serve smaller numbers, since Food For Thought had to take a back seat. Created a retail range of products of ready to use condiments called FFT - Retail. Covid helped me pivot into new avenues and see different sides of my own business. As luck came by I was offered a beautiful space in Bangalore to start a cafe in December 2021. The opportunity was not to be missed, I started it on January 14th 2022 and now I am a restauranter as well. The journey of 12 years from being a home chef to a well know caterer and now a restauranter has been exhilarating. I came this far without any investment or funding. Faith in GOD and support of my family have been my strength. My mission is to empower as many women as I can. Behind every successful women there is a loving family.
