After MBA, a young man started a paan business and opened 200 outlets across the country, employing 350 people
P.N. Thakur, who started his paan business in 2015 says – “Not only in Varanasi, even while living in Hyderabad, I notice that even though people like to eat paan here, this business is scattered in India, and does not work in an organic way.”
He also shares that he got inspiration from a statement he heard during a seminar in his internship days. He shares that after doing MBA from Banaras University when he was doing his internship with shines.com of Hindustan Times in Hyderabad, he attended a seminar where professionals said that “making unorganized things organized, is called the business”, and that is what inspired him of doing a paan business.
He shares how in India, people think that eating paan is a bad addiction, it is only tobacco based and only men can enjoy it. He tried changing peoples perspective and also he told how he used recipes of Banarasi paan, he also shares that he tried to bring a change in a way that women and children too can enjoy his paan. Not only this but, he presents his paan with a hygienic and an attractive environment.
