Business Overview

Prashad is a multi-award winning vegetarian restaurant in Bradford that offers cuisine from Gujarat, Punjab and South India.


Bobby was running a successful family restaurant and applied to the programme to develop a clear plan, with practical and measurable goals, to enable him to achieve the growth potential of the business.


Since participating in 10,000 Small Businesses, Bobby has relocated the restaurant to larger premises, increasing both the number of covers and doubling the number of employees. He has opened a sister company called Bundobust, a craft beer and Indian street food bar with an established site in Leeds, and expansion plans across the UK in the upcoming years.
