Midvale, Utah — Curry Up Now, the award-winning and largest and fastest growing Indian fast-casual concept that’s known for its innovative approach to Indian cuisine, is celebrating the opening of its first Utah restaurant in Midvale on February 28, 2020.

This opening marks the first Curry Up Now outpost in the region and continues the brand’s nationwide expansion. With the Midvale outpost, Curry Up Now operates 11 restaurants across the country and has more than 40 additional franchised units in varying stages of development across the United States, including another location opening in downtown Salt Lake City later this year which will feature the brand’s eclectic craft cocktail bar, Mortar & Pestle.

“Our Utah expansion is the next step in our plan for nationwide expansion via our Tikka Masala Burritos, Sexy Fries, Naughty Naan, and our other innovative Indian eats,” says Founder Akash Kapoor. “The greater Salt Lake City area is growing rapidly, and we’re excited to have Curry Up Now be part of this market as it continues to develop and the population here expands.”

Curry Up Now began as a food truck in 2009, founded by husband-and-wife duo Akash and Rana Kapoor and supported by co-founder and senior vice president of operations, Amir Hosseini.

In the last 10 years, the Kapoors have expanded the Curry Up Now empire to include three food trucks, 11 brick-and-mortar restaurants spanning coast to coast, and a globally-inspired craft cocktail bar concept, Mortar & Pestle, that is housed within select Curry Up Now restaurants.

Curry Up Now aims to have 22 units in operation by the end of 2020, with upcoming openings slated for Utah, Colorado, California, New Jersey, Georgia and Indiana. For more information, visit Curry Up Now is partnered with Fransmart to grow via franchising. For more information, visit
