Gagan Pradhan - Nepal

Course: Hospitality Management
Institute: William Blue International Hotel Management School
URL: www.williamblue.edu.au/
Location: Sydney, New South Wales



As soon as returned to Nepal from Australia after completing my course in Hospitality Management, I joined one of the five star hotel as the front office manager. But within a week I quit thinking that I could do something much better of my own and ended up doing the first specialty coffee house in Nepal.

Today I own about eight coffee stores and there are five more projects in the pipe line.

Beside establishing coffee outlets in Nepal, I have been able to franchise a couple of stores overseas and the demand for franchises is increasing. My company is the largest Nepalese Coffee exporter from Nepal and all our coffee beans are lab tested at Coffee Lab International in the United States. Our products are approved by FDA in the US and is a proud member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

Beside this, my company is the largest importer for commercial espresso machines in Nepal.

I have also been able to start the first Himalayan Java Barista Coffee School in Nepal, the first of its kind in south East asia and so far we have successfully trained over 2000 students.
