About Curry Up Now

Curry Up Now is known for taking traditional Indian offerings and presenting them in a way that is accessible and approachable for the American consumer. Indian staples such as tikka masala and naan are transformed into Mission-style burritos (a San Francisco signature), poutine and flatbread pizzas - formats that are known and loved in the U.S., but largely unseen in traditional Indian cuisine.

Headquarters: San Francisco, California

Industry: Food & Beverages


Established in 2009, Curry Up Now strives to deliver their food that is authentic in taste and flavor at its core. They have managed to take traditional Indian flavors and present them in a friendly and recognizable format.

Business Challenge

In light of their upcoming expansion plans, Curry Up Now sees the need to cater more time into business planning and away from essential, yet time-consuming tasks like hiring. There was also a need to start hiring more blue-collar workers to support daily operations across their various outlets. Yet, qualified applicants were not seen applying for these openings . As such, Curry Up Now has to spend extra time to hire and train their employees to ensure that the quality of their work is up to standard. Still, the biggest pain point for Curry Up Now is that every step of hiring is manual and this could have been minimized if there was a single platform that can automate the entire hiring and on-boarding process.
