Hospitality is one of the fastest growing sectors and I found B-Dubs to be the right choice for reaching another milestone in this exciting industry.

Kedar Selagam setty, Founder & Director- M Kitchens said “We are very glad to have the dynamic and energetic Allu Arjun as our partner in this venture. With a significant percentage of customers of B-Dubs in the USA from the Indian community, we are sure that the food will touch a chord with the youth here in India too. This flagship restaurant will lead the way for more B-Dubs in Hyderabad, Bangalore by mid 2018 and expand into more cities in South India. We have already invested Rs. 100 crore in M Kitchens and will look to raise more funds to expand our portfolio in the Hospitality business including the expansion of B-Dubs.”
Sam Reddy, Co-Founder & Director, M Kitchens said, “We believe that B-Dubs menu will perfectly match our Indian palate and is indeed a true sports bar.It took us 8-9 months just to find a perfect site for the flagship location of India.
