Quick Questions with Conan Gomes
What inspired you to start Yo India?
I've always known I wanted to run my own business. I started seeing food trucks around parks and after a few months of working at a friend's food truck, I told my dad this is a good time and idea to start a small food business.
What started as a small food truck parked at a local park, with a lot of hard work and time, we found ourselves being asked to cater at well-known festivals and cater to beautiful weddings and events. Now, our next challenge it to open a shop.
What have you learned since starting Yo India?
I think the most difficult thing is to admit that you'll make some mistakes along the way. The industry is challenging as it is so having to open a restaurant in a time when things are completely different is a different type of challenge.
Anything else you want to add about your time at Angliss?
