Curry Up Now Inks Second Franchise Deal in Texas in 30 Days

by Katie Lee

Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas — Curry Up Now, the nation’s largest and fastest growing Indian fast-casual concept, signed a deal with a franchise group in the Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston areas to bring five new Curry Up Now restaurants, some with Mortar & Pestle craft cocktail bars, to Texas. This deal comes on the heels of a six-unit franchise deal signed for Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin just a few weeks earlier. Curry Up Now operates 11 restaurants and three craft cocktail bars across the country, with nearly 50 restaurants in varying stages of development.

Franchisee KCP Concepts plans to open five Curry Up Now Indian Street Food restaurants in the Richardson, Frisco, Dallas and Fort Worth areas. Some of these will feature the Mortar and Pestle craft cocktail bar. The group seeks restaurant sites in the busiest mass gathering spaces in their territory and plan to open in summer 2021.

“KCP Concepts is the ideal partner for further expanding the Curry Up Now brand into the Lone Star state. Their vast knowledge of the restaurant scene in both Dallas and Houston, and experience in franchise operations, gives us full confidence that their locations will be a great success,” says Akash Kapoor, CEO and founder of Curry Up Now. “It has been our goal since day one to deliver Indian flavors that are authentic by nature, yet uniquely formatted for everyone to enjoy without being intimidated by ethnic cuisine. This imminent expansion into the state of Texas will allow us to share Curry Up Now with even more of the country.”

Curry Up Now was established in 2009 by husband and wife team Akash and Rana Kapoor, and supported by co-founder and now senior vice president of operations, Amir Hosseini. Curry Up Now currently operates 12 brick-and-mortars and three food trucks nationwide, and has both corporate and franchised units in development across California, New Jersey, Colorado, Utah, Georgia and Indiana.
