Nuts over Salads is a story of two brothers with a shared dream of becoming India’s premier provider of healthy salads. Born in the family of restauranteurs for Aditya Rao & Abhijeet Rao, business of food was a familiar play ground. However, it was the passion for food that ignited the spark for Nuts over Salads.
Aditya’s love for cooking took him to Australia, to pursue Culinary Arts. Spent a year after his graduation, working in kitchens of the likes of Gary Mehigan (The beloved Judge from MasterChef Australia TV Series). Returned to India and worked in a host of restaurants in Bangalore.
Blessed with abundant patience and a flair for discovering new flavors, Aditya believes that variety is truly the spice of life and that healthy food must be exciting as well as packed with flavors. A philosophy that is well translated into his salads.
Abhijeet, a health and fitness enthusiast, was always more inclined towards the hospitality business. Opened his first restaurant in Bangalore and managed another in Goa. He takes pride in setting up the very first Night Club in the Andaman Island. Along with Nuts over Salads, Abhijeet continues to fuel his passion for fitness.
A scuba diving instructor & a fitness trainer, Abhijeet, believes that a good and healthy physique is made and maintained in a kitchen and not so much in the gym. That is his way of life and helps spread this healthy approach to living through his salads.
Sometimes good ideas just happen. Nuts over Salads was one such good idea that happened, over a simple conversation with a friend at his gym. The lack of healthy food deliveries fueled the idea of a healthy food deliveries startup.
But what good is a business idea if it not viable! So viability was ensured with the decision of focusing on creative healthy salads. Started with just 2 subscribers a week, Nuts over Salads, today delights hundreds of different customers daily with their handcrafted delicious salads.
