Mowgli bringing taste of India to Cheltenham
By Rob Freeman | 25th February 2021
Growing Indian street food chain Mowgli is opening a new restaurant in Cheltenham's Brewery Quarter.
The 2,660sq ft site, which is expected to open this summer and have room for 80 covers, will be the chain's 13th outlet after first opening Liverpool six years ago.
Founder Nisha Katona, a former barrister, was awarded an MBE for her services to the food industry in 2019 and the chain was named in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 the previous year.
The company's charitable trust has donated more than £760,000 to charities close to its restaurants.
She said: "Out of the ashes of a decimated 2020 ,we hope to raise this sweet fledgling Indian home kitchen in The Brewery Quarter.
"I have always been a fan of Cheltenham. To be able to take Mowgli there, to create 30 jobs, to find and support a local charity there makes me so proud.
"We exist to enrich the life in the places we go to - Cheltenham I hope we make you proud."
The Mowgli ethos is based on how Indians eat at home and on their streets.
Nikki Kontarines, asset manager of Martin Commercial Properties, managing agents of The Brewery Quarter, said: "We are delighted to welcome Mowgli to The Brewery Quarter this summer.
"We feel that Mowgli is the perfect fit alongside our other quality operators.
"With the multi-million pound refurbishment and expansion of Cineworld VIP and the new additions of The Alchemist, Escape Hunt, Hubbox and F45, we believe we're really playing our part in enriching Gloucestershire's hospitality and leisure scene."
