Ten years ago, Mr. India Grocers was a just a small, but well-loved grocery store serving the food needs of South Asian expats. But one day, the owners were struck with an idea: why not offer harder-to-find Bollywood movie rentals alongside food items? The idea was an instant success with customers. Soon, people shopping for ingredients for chicken tikka masala or a veggie biryani would also be seen picking up a Bollywood flick or 12 on their way out. The gain in popularity not only caused the store to expand to a larger location, but soon a second, larger outpost was opened on Grand Park Drive.
That growth has let Mr. India Grocers better serve the needs of their customers, allowing them to offer a wider selection of Indian goods and more exotic fruits from India. They have also opened a new haveli-style kitchen (a traditional Indian take-out area) at the Grand Park Drive location, where chefs serve up hot cups of masala chai alongside dishes such as lamb curry and buttery wads of naan. Each meal they make is designed to be eaten on the go, subbed in for dinner at home, or kept at one’s bedside to induce passionate food dreams.
