According to Ashish Nichani, founder of Place Of Origin, "Whenever we travel, we buy specific foods from specific places to bring home for our family, friends and colleagues, Every time I travelled, people asked me to bring them chips, Kakra and pickles from all over the country".
Ashish and one of his colleagues, Sudarsan Metla got an idea to make a business out of it when a friend of his was conducting a wedding in Mumbai. He wanted this particular sweet called Dhamaka which is made with rose petals, raisins and pistachios from Evergreen in Delhi. He wanted to give them out with the wedding invitations. That’s what convinced them that people want special food, and they’re willing to pay for it.
