Organized QSR Market: Serving Up Smiles

Now, let’s talk about the real heroes of Indian dining – the Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs). From crispy dosas to cheesy pizzas, QSRs are the unsung champions of fast food in India. And with a market size CAGR of 27% over FY22-25, they’re spreading joy faster than you can say “extra fries, please” (Source: Technopak).

But what’s the secret sauce behind their success? It’s simple – innovation, adaptation, and a generous dollop of desi flair. Whether it’s a spicy twist on a classic burger or a fusion of flavours from around the world, QSRs are keeping things fresh and funky, one meal at a time.
