First-of-its-Kind Concept to Offer Wholesome, Customizable Indian Fare in a Fast Casual Setting 

with Expansion in Metro Atlanta

ATLANTA (Oct. XX, 2021) – Sankranti is a fast-casual dining restaurant that aims to bring Indian cuisine to the Atlanta area and beyond with franchising opportunities. Restaurateur Srinivasa “Nimms” Nimmagadda is deeply passionate about sharing his culture through food and is now sharing that passion with several other communities. 

Sankranti, which is bringing a healthier fast-casual option to the Dunwoody area in December, plans for 10 additional locations throughout Atlanta. The brand aims to make high-quality Indian fare accessible to all with customizable Indian dishes that are sure to please every customer.

“The goal is to make Indian food mainstream,” says Nimmagadda. “We’re bringing Indian food to everyone.” 

The company is currently focused on franchising in and around the Atlanta area and is looking to attract franchisees with an entrepreneurial spirit and love for Indian cuisine and culture. Nimmagadda is primarily seeking multi-unit franchise deals with an initial franchise fee of $30,000 and $22,500 for each additional franchise location.

Nimmagadda has already established himself as a leader on the Indian restaurant scene in Georgia with his fine dining restaurant and banquet hall in Johns Creek that also is called Sankranti. He is filling the void of Indian food offerings in the quick-service sector with a first-of-its-kind model he refers to as the Indian version of Chipotle or Panda Express, where guests place orders at the counter and build their meals. Sankranti’s franchising program will offer more health-conscious, quick-dining options well beyond the Dunwoody area.  

“We’re going to continue making really good food and offer our franchisees the opportunity to invest in a unique concept and grow their own businesses,” says Nimmagadda, who says Sankranti is currently focused on franchising within the Atlanta area with plans to expand beyond Atlanta in the future.
