Jumping on the growing trend, 22-year-old entrepreneur Shashank Sharma decided to open a tea café.
"After completing my graduation, I was thinking of a business idea to start with and one day, while I was discussing my plans with my friends at a corner chai tapri, and we were talking of Cafe Coffee Day's success, I realised, why can’t I open a tea cafe?” Shashank tells in an interaction with SMBStory.
