MAY 19, 1999
A red letter day PACK N CHEW started as a small shack with a handful of employees as a takeaway joint. There was a small sit out area with funky music and affordable but delicious food on a busy Vidhan Sabha Marg. But just the way it started with a big bang, PNC was struck by a bigger bang. It had to shut after nine months of operations. With no place to shift to and office deliveries to be taken care of, the kitchen operated out of a garage for the next three months.
JUNE 14, 2000
Came a new rustic looking PACK N CHEW the open-air restaurant at Gokhle Marg. Known for the detailed flawless BANQUET ARRANGEMENT, PNC as it was fondly called become an addiction for people. Big open spaces with small shack like huts gave a feeling of the beaches of Goa. Surrounded by trees and greenery, a cozy grove where one could hear birds chirping, leaves rustling, wind blowing and rain drops singing.
Another blow, the area that proudly housed PNC over eight long years was to be vacated. PNC had to move again…. This time the not so young entrepreneur in me was scared…
MAY 10, 2008
The gates of PNC opened at Gomti Nagar…Hard work began… all the fears and troubles got submerged in the very busy schedules. This time there was another feather in the cap… along with open air sit out there was an air-conditioned dining room too. Not to forget change in name…PNC is now called PACK N CHEW RESTAURANT… and not open air restaurant.
