The couple had been married for five years and decided to dive into the world of entrepreneurship as Shikhar had been having a calling to start a venture with the popular Indian snack samosa. The couple resigned from their jobs and moved to Bengaluru, where they opened “Samosa Singh” in 2016.
Despite coming from a well-off family background, the couple launched their business with their own savings. They even sold off their dream apartment for ₹80 lakh, where they had stayed for only one day, as they needed funds to expand their kitchen. The Singhs bought a factory in Bengaluru with the money and as expected, their business boomed.
The couple now sells around 30,000 samosas every month, bringing their daily earnings to around ₹12 lakh, the report said. The duo have introduced several innovative samosas in their menu, such as Manchurian samosa, kadai paneer samosa and more. They are currently mulling an expansion of their business to the next phase.
