Curry Up Now acquires Tava Kitchen

May 18, 2017

The fast-casual Tava Kitchen chain in San Francisco has been acquired by Curry Up Now, another Bay-area Indian concept, in an expansion move, the companies announced Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

All three of Tava Kitchen’s locations in California closed earlier this year. However, an 1,800-square-foot location in Alameda, Calif., will be rebranded as a Curry Up Now and is scheduled to reopen in June with a new open-kitchen format. The site will serve as an innovation lab to test new items and as a training restaurant, said Akash Kapoor, Curry Up Now’s co-founder and CEO.
