Hospitality is one of the fastest growing sectors and I found B-Dubs to be the right choice for reaching another milestone in this exciting industry.

This flagship restaurant will lead the way for more B-Dubs in Hyderabad, Bangalore by mid 2018 and expand into more cities inSouth India. We have already invested Rs. 100 crore in M Kitchens and will look to raise more funds to expand our portfolio in the Hospitality business including the expansion of B-Dubs.”
