Taking a step towards your dream can change your life! With hard work, passion, and dedication, you can surely be closer to your goals and aims. The only constant is putting effort into all the stages of the process. A woman in Hyderabad began her business of selling biryanis from her home with an unbelievable budget of only ₹80. Entrepreneurship that started with just ₹80 now earns over a lakh each month. Today, we are taking a look at Naaz Anjum’s motivational story and her cloud-kitchen business.

Meet Naaz Anjum, Who Sells Biryanis & Runs A Great Business

Taking to Instagram, ANJUM’S KITCHEN CRAFT (@anjums_kitchen_) shared glimpses of the appetising Hyderabadi Mutton Biryani.

The journey to creating “Anjum’s Kitchen” began from Naaz’s kitchen with her love for cooking. Starting back in 2016, she is one of the first women in Hyderabad to run her cloud kitchen. The USP of her kitchen is authentic homecooked Hyderabad delicacies and of course, finger-licking biryanis. She is focused on serving the best quality and this has surely helped her a lot to make a name in the industry and win foodies’ hearts by serving delectable delicacies. Anjum got inspired by people in her neighbourhood on her journey in the biryani business, according to a report by The Times of India.

It has been about 7 years of running her successful cloud kitchen business in Hyderabad and still she makes sure to give her 100 per cent to take it to another level. Anjum begins her day as early as 4:30 AM and starts preparing for that day’s orders. Standing at the end of 2023, her business has seen immense growth and success. A homegrown business that began with ₹80 now brings about 25 to 30 orders daily.

With so many food orders every day, Naaz has prepared dishes for more than 20,000 orders in her entrepreneurial journey. Today, she is earning about ₹1 lakh a single month and the credit behind all this goes to her efforts to grow her baby, Anjum’s Kitchen, to such a popular name among foodies and biryani lovers. In a conversation with The Times of India, she shared that her dedication, hard work, innovation, and commitment to quality are the biggest factors behind her successful establishment.
