There is no love greater than the love for food. But is doing business in food loveable, fun, and exciting? What are the watch-outs when one decides to take a plunge to open a food business? The pandemic sent huge tremors in the F&B industry seeing the rise of new ventures. But what is the future of food and how technologically-driven will it be? And finally, does leadership take on a new meaning during a crisis? Is there enough conversation around the mental health of leaders?

In episode 9 of Speakeasy with Dheeraj Sinha, we explore the F&B business with Gauri Devidayal, Co-founder and CEO at Food Matters Group which includes brands like The Table, The Table Farm, Magazine St. Kitchen, Iktara, Mag St Bread Co, Miss T Delivery, Mag St Toppings, and most recently, Mag St. Café.

We talk about the vibrant restaurant business in India, its evolution, and the joys of entrepreneurship.

Join us as Gauri tells us about the hardships she faced when she switched her career into the F&B business, the evolution of the restaurant scene due to the pandemic, and her take on leadership.
