Love At First Bite @ Mad Over Donuts

 Kuch Meetha Chahiye? To phir Donuts try karo na. Well this was Mad Over Donuts advertising statergy to promote their product last year during Diwali celebrations. Yes the donut fever has caught attention in India also. 

As per Wikipedia “A doughnut or donut is a type of fried dough confectionery or dessert food. Doughnuts are popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty outlets. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and shaped in rings or flattened spheres that sometimes contain fillings. Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types. “ 
Why have I quoted Wikipedia is because way back in 2000 I wasn't aware of it's existence even, so I was not too much familiar with the way how donuts are prepared as in India it’s only in recent times that this snack has caught the imagination of metropolitan cities of India. Thanks to many Hollywood movies viewed in cable channels, where donuts with coffee is a regular feature, the trend to hang out in donut joints is catching up fast.

 One of the largest and well established gourmet donut producing Singapore based company in India is Mad About Donuts ( MOD) which has created a niche for itself in the F&B segment being the first concept of its kind to enter India. It’s vibrant & youthful customer friendly experience has found a strong connect with its target audience and the brand has evolved into a lifestyle choice for many, especially since they cater eggless gourmet donut is a blessing for vegetarians.

Mr Tarak Bhattacharya, Chief Operating Officer, Mad Over Donuts, during the opening of their Phoenix Market City, Bangalore, said in the release that the strategy was to focus on the ‘Love at First Bite!’ experience, which also includes the fun experience that one gets whenever the customer walked into a Mad Over Donuts’ store.  Mad Over Donuts caters to guests with an array of scrumptious Donuts and freshly brewed Coffees. The company already has more than 46 stores all over India in a span of 5 years, with expansion plans of more than double store count by the end of 2013.  

I too have recently visited this joint at Koramangala branch, Bangalore where the energy was vibrant and it’s always was buzzing with activities. Not to mention that the taste of the donuts were awesome. Their selling figures are astonishing, they sell 21,000 donuts across India per day and in Bangalore Koramangla fetches the highest number of customers and sell around 800 donuts per day ! Mr. Tarak told us that in each outlet there are 6 chefs who work round the clock and the main supply comes twice a day. First batch in the morning and the second in the evening. Depending upon the sale of first half of the day next batch comes. Since the shell life is less so each outlet tries to deliver only fresh items on the counter.
