In a few blogs, I shall express my thanks to all the restaurateurs who have helped us shape up MeDine to what it is today with their unending support and positive influence. Here is the first in the series –
Our first restaurant where we piloted ‘MeDine’ is ‘My Tea House’ located in Banashankari 3rd stage. We got to drive experimentation at a rapid pace only because of the support of the owners (Dwivedi ji & Shashank ji). Incidentally, me and my wife used to enjoy the over 300 varieties of specialty teas here – my favourites being Irani, Jasmine, Kashmiri Kahwa & Kulhad chai with jaggery. We did a great deal of changes based on our learnings here and today when they opened a bigger outlet in Koramangala (My Tea House Koramangala), they went ahead with our solutions. It was heartening to know that they consulted everyone but decided to give business to us . Today after the successful launch of the restaurant in Koramangala and going strong, they called me to remind that we have not collected the payment so far and its due at their end. Talk about good business ethics in this age ! We were always customer friendly and knew whom we need not bother for payments since we wanted to reciprocate the support they gave us and do out bit to develop ethical business practices..
