Mr. Gaurav Ahuja
COO, Red Ginger Hospitality India Pvt. Ltd.

An IIT -IIM graduate with interests as diverse as mountaineering and event management after having worked with the Global Markets Group at Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore co- founded Red Ginger Hospitality India Ltd alongwith his wife Neha Ahuja in 2007. He left his cushy job to do something he was passionate about- having a Restaurant of his own. Organised Retail has just started to grow in the country in 2007 and Gaurav could clearly sense the huge opportunity that it posed as there was no national restaurant brand in India.

The first restaurant was started in 2007 and Gaurav hasn't looked back since then. With 24 operational outlets and 27 in the pipeline in India and the United States, he has set Red Ginger Hospitality on the national retail map in a short span of 4 years. Gaurav is a prominent and regular speaker at TiE, India Retail Forum, Asia Retail Congress,Franchising Expos amongst others. Known for his participative style of leadership, Gaurav has been able to craft a very seasoned senior management team at Red Ginger Hospitality, which is making waves in the hospitality industry in India

Having recently been awarded as “One of the most inspiring entrepreneurs of recent times” by IIM Lucknow, Gaurav is working towards making Red Ginger Hospitality India’s largest chain of Quick Service Restaurants.
