About Curry Up Now

Curry Up Now was established back in 2009 by Akash Kapoor and his wife Rana. What began as a California food truck, quickly turned into the largest and fastest-growing Indian fast-casual concept in the U.S., with a total of seven brick-and-mortar locations nationwide. This new Mile Square location marks Curry Up Now’s second New Jersey outpost, with a Newark location opening soon following the Hoboken opening.

So, why Hoboken? Don’t forget, Curry Up Now is now a franchise, so this Mile Square restaurant is the second of five NJ locations secured by local franchisees, Pritesh Benjamin and Tejavsi Patel.

Benjamin and Patel are also in charge of the soon-to-be Newark location as well {which is coming to 58 Halsey Street}.

“Hoboken has always been my second home, so I’m very excited to introduce Curry Up Now’s unique and innovative Indian food to the diverse population and customers in this city,” said Benjamin in an official press release. “We secured a prime location in the Historic District that is close to the train station where many people pass through every day. We have full confidence that Curry Up Now will be an exciting, convenient option for commuters and quickly become an integrated part of the community.”

In addition to expansion planned for the state of New Jersey, plans for Curry Up Now locations to sprout up elsewhere in Cali, Georgia, and Utah are already in the works.

Wondering what’s on the menu? We’ve mentioned a few staples, but we can’t forget fan-favorites like Quesadillix {quesadillas}, Sexy Fries, and the Naughty Naan. At Curry Up Now, you’ll also find tikka masala burritos and the Deconstructed Samosa, a dish described as “an inside out phenomenon loaded with chana, pico kachumber, chutneys, mini samosas.” If you’re new to the samosa, it’s a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling of spiced potatoes, onions, peas, meat, and/or lentils.

The menu features Street Snacks tacos, sweet potato fries, lamb samosas, Indian railway cutlets, dynamite Tangra wings, and more — street food, burritos {even a vegan one!}, bowls, Thali platters, kids’ options, and more.

Beyond the Food

“We are super excited to be opening in Hoboken and Newark thereafter,” said Kapoor in the press release. “This is just the beginning of Curry Up Now’s East Coast expansion. Our real estate team in the New York TriState area, headed by Raj Whadwa at Newmark Knight Frank, is aggressively seeking sites for future Curry Up Now locations. Additionally, there’s some solid interest from franchisees in Massachusetts, Indiana, Michigan and southern New Jersey.”

Curry Up Now currently has 41 franchised and corporate stores sold and in varying stages of development. It has been recognized in Inc 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies, QSR’s 40 Under 40, Nation’s Restaurant News’ 2018 Breakout Brands, and has even been listed as #20 in Fast Casual’s Top 100 Movers and Shakers 2019, and named a Hot Food + Beverage Chain by the International Council of Shopping Centers.

For now, be sure to pop by the Washington Street location from 12:00PM-8:00PM daily to enjoy some of the delicious food offered here.
