Bajeko Sekuwa & Chetan Bhandari
Bajeko Sekuwa is a renowned restaurant that serves its customers with authentic vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian items, especially “sekuwa” also known as skewered meat. This restaurant is known as the pioneer of the Nepali industry. Like any other successful restaurant, Bajeko Sekuwa started in a small cart on the roadside near the airport of Kathmandu before being recognized for its unique taste and the hospitality of the owner Mr Dhinanath Bhandari. Mr Bhandari saw the lack of a place that served food to people around the airport and utilized this scenario to open his own cart, where the real story of the Bajeko Sekuwa began and now it has become famous among people.
Son of Mr Dhinanath Bhandari, Mr Chetan Bhandari has been looking after the management and the growth of the big food empire for a few years now and he has totally changed the working of the business according to the demand of the people and advancement in people’s life. Now, Bajeko Sekuwa is a brand name and has 13 restaurants in different locations. It also produces and supplies different varieties of spices nationally and internationally. Furthermore, the franchise concept has also been introduced by Bajeko Sekuwa. From a small cart to owning multiple restaurants Bajeko Sekuwa has been through a lot. We can learn a lot from the hardship of the owner and can implement it ourselves. We should be able to adapt to the environment we are in and should not hesitate to improvise accordingly is a few of the learnings that can help us.
