Biryani has been an integral part of Indian cuisine for more than two decades now and according to a Swiggy yearly report, Biryani has been the most ordered item since 2017.
During November 21, Dindigul Thalappakatti has generated over Rs 21 crores of revenue from 75 outlets in India and 50 per cent of the sale has been contributed by biryani, making the brand the largest player in the country. The brand is known for its heritage and authentic Thalappakatti biryani that consists of artfully blended spices that trace back to over 60 years.
The coveted recipes consist of special homemade spices and a unique taste for different taste palettes. Dindigul Thalappakatti opened their first outlet decades earlier than any other brand in the market today and their strong brand equity was built over the decades on local culture, folklore and word of mouth.
Speaking on the occasion, Ashutosh Bihani, The CEO of Dindigul Thalappakatti Restaurants said, ''We are thrilled to be recognised as the largest biryani brand in South India.
