It is very sad and disappointing when the order of quitting work from a frozen job suddenly comes from the management. In the present situation, companies do it to reduce their costs. In such a situation, many employees suffer from depression. But in such a situation it is necessary to look forward to a new opportunity by awakening more courage and confidence. In today’s situation, one should always be ready to face such a crisis. In the same way, it is thrilling to know how two friends, who were victims of the recession of 2007, got bored with the terrible conditions.
two friends Sujay Sohani And Subodh Joshi The story of the start-up of ‘Shri Krishna Vada Pav‘ is something like this. Circumstances had prepared to drown them in the trough of despair, but where were these two to give up. Sujay and Subodh are doing business of 4.4 crores turnover after recovering from the time of crisis. In London, he established Mumbiaya Vada Pav as a quick fix snack. Today, ‘Shri Krishna Vada Pav’ has 4 outlets in London. Where domestic and foreign customers get taste satisfaction from Vada Pav.
In 2009, when the global economy was in a recession, many small and big countries had come under the grip of it. This economic recession also affected employment and many were removed from work. Sujay and Subodh, working in London, also lost their jobs. Sujay was the beverage manager at a five-star hotel. After leaving the job, the financial problem started increasing and the shortage of money troubled him. Subodh on the other hand was also looking for a job. Frustrated Sujay talks to Subodh. Both friends studied Hotel Management in 1999 from Rizvi College, Mumbai, Bandra. Sujay lived in Thane while Subodh was a resident of Wadala. Both worked in London. In this conversation, Subodh said that he does not have the money to buy even ‘Vada Pav’. And this ‘Vada Pav’ became the key word for both of them and this is why they got the idea of Vada Pav’s business in London.
On 15 August 2010, he started ‘Sri Krishna Vada Pav’. At that time it was very difficult to choose a good site in a low budget. But an ice cream parlor owner hesitantly offered him a place for a monthly rent of ₹ 35000 (400 pounds). He started selling Vada Pav ₹ 80 (1 pound) and Dhabli for another type of Mumbai snacks for ₹ 131 (1.5 pound). But it could not give a tremendous start and profit was negligible. He concluded that he would have to do some marketing for Vada Pav. Both the young businessmen came on the road with their vada pav and started identifying it as Indian burger. It is cheaper and tastier than a regular burger and that is really it. Where the burger was in 4 pounds (₹ 440), the Indian burger was less than half in 2 pounds (₹ 175). The visitors were given a taste to taste it for free. His strategy proved to be very effective and the benefit was that Vada Pav soon became very famous among Londoners.
Now the café began to shrink for their business. And they felt the need for a bigger place. Then a Punjabi restaurant came to him with an offer to work. Both Sujay and Subodh found the proposal beneficial and both agreed. The ‘Shri Krishna Vada Pav’ stall started 7 years ago has taken the form of a restaurant and has 4 restaurants in London itself. 35 employees work with him in his business having turnover of 50,000 pounds (4.4 crores). Which includes people of Indian, Romanian and Polish origin.
“Don’t be male, don’t disappoint the mind, do some work, do some work.”
We all use this poem of Maithili Sharan Gupta ji in Amuman colloquial mode at one time or another. But the one who adopts its feelings in real life, never lets despair get around in any situation and by his effort and labor, he gets his pride, honor, respect and becomes an inspiration for all those who are immersed in despair. Occur. Sujay Sohani and Subodh Joshi’s success story is a living example of this.
