Episode 175

#175 Nisha Katona, Founder and CEO at Mowgli, on Big Plans for Small Businesses

It was a true joy to have Mowgli Street Food founder Nisha Katona back on Hospitality Mavericks. Her restaurant is all about how Indians eat at home and on their streets, and it is one of the Top 100 companies to work for in the UK. This time round we catch up on how her life and business have been since covid.

In this episode, Nisha discusses how running a small restaurant can still make ambitious plans for the environment and be a reputable employer in the industry. We also explore the differences between being a CEO and a founder, her strategy for high retention rates, doing her own social media – and why she gets outside no matter the weather.
