Nothing is impossible in this world if you are willing to achieve something in your life. This is correctly proven by the founder of ‘Love & Cheesecake bakery, Ruchyeta Bhatia who started this bakery in 2012 from a small 300 sq. feet kitchen in Bandra. Now, it has grown into a chain of premium cafes and full- service restaurants. The founder of this venture, Ruchyeta Bhatia, now manages 8 outlets of Love & Cheesecake in Mumbai intending to include 8 more this year.
Let’s know something about her background
The premium bakery has been started by Ruchyeta Bhatia who is an Economics graduate from Mumbai’s Jai Hind College. She has seen a dream of starting something of her own and she always desired to dive into the food industry.
She started her business at the age of 22
She also worked at an international market research firm where her job was to analyze survey results. She was not that much interested in doing her corporate work and she took leave within five months to start working towards her dream. She started at the age of 22 with no previous experience.
She learned a lot during her internship
To make her dream venture a reality, she also decides to go through a course at the Culinary Institute of America to sharpen her skills. But before she could join them, she has to invest six months in a culinary kitchen.
During her internship at Mumbai’s Marriott Hotels, she has learned about the different shades of desserts and realized that Western desserts are a tough category. She explained that even small alterations in temperature could completely vary the taste. This was undoubtedly a challenge from a business prospect, but it only helped to arouse the entrepreneur within her.
Finally, she came out with finding ‘Love& Cheesecake
During her internship, she has got the idea to start her business. Not only this, but she has also been introduced to a brilliant pastry chef and now her co-founder, Amit Sharma. He has a good experience of working with Taj and Marriott. They both have worked hard to build this venture.
They saved a lot to start with this
They have saved a lot to start their business. They took a small place at the back of a building where a few people would just come by sometime and try some of their stuff. Things however changed when they got featured in some local blogs.
And then they got a huge success
Soon, they started receiving huge footfall and which led to the success of their venture. This way, they have also managed to expand its chain into multiple cafes and restaurants. The journey was extremely challenging for her when she was expecting and side by side she was managing her business also. But she has succeeded in what she has wanted which led to the emergence of such a premium brand that has more than 250 workers as of now.
