The platform will invest the raised funds in expanding the presence of Kitchen Garden in Mumbai by opening potential outlets in Colaba, Andheri, or Versova, among other locations, later this year.
The company stated that the part of the capital will also be used for establishing a cloud kitchen to cater to food deliveries.
“We are very excited to reinforce our collaboration with DSG, which has supported us since the beginning, and to welcome Yuj onboard. These two amazing investors will help us to develop our footprint in Mumbai and to enhance customer experience through new formats and channels,” Antonia Achache, co-founder of Suzette Gourmet, said.
Suzette Gourmet was founded by Antonia Achache, Jérémie Sabbagh, and Pierre Labail in 2011. The platform is the owner of Suzette brands and operator of Mumbai’s organic salad cafe chain, Kitchen Garden.
“We are very excited to continue backing Jérémie, Antonia, and Pierre on their journey as they continue to build the Suzette and Kitchen Garden brands. Both brands have a very loyal customer following. The menu also has been designed to cater to a broad spectrum of today’s health-focused consumers who have adopted specific dietary regimes, including non-dairy, vegan, keto, paleo, and gluten friendly,” said Deepak Shahdadpuri, Managing Director of DSG Consumer Partners.
Madhav Soi of Yuj Ventures added, “Yuj Ventures is pleased to support Suzette, and their mission to provide healthy, fresh, and tasty food options for India’s increasingly health conscious customers. We are impressed by their passion and their ability to channel it into driving exponential sales growth with an unrelenting focus on quality. We look forward to working with them to drive their next phase of growth.”
