We invest in restaurant brands that people love for more than just a menu

“I founded INDAY to serve the food I grew up with: light, bright flavors that make for balanced and nourishing meals. Our cuisine is built on a four thousand year old Indian tradition centered on the belief that food is the best medicine.”

Our Story

We provide capital, connections and know-how to help brands bring their story, ethos and recipes to eaters everywhere.

Authentic Experiences.

The best concepts offer an experience which makes customers feel like they are part of something special. These are the brands people love, and they are the only ones we fund.

Connected Capital.

While capital creates opportunity, our most valuable resource is our expertise. We bring a network of tried-and-true industry partners and colleagues that can advise and guide each brand on its distinct journey.

Purposeful Growth.

Our brands grow by amplifying their true voices—not by conforming to fit every market. Whether they have one location or thousands, each of our concepts refines and expands with the same DNA that made it great in the first place.
