MBA Chaiwala, a multi-crore tea outlet across India, has announced to open an outlet in Guwahati through a tweet on Sunday.
The tea outlets are owned by Prafull Billore, the son of a farmer from Labravda village in Madhya Pradesh, after failing to pass the Common Admission Test (CAT) despite three years of preparation.
Instead of doing MBA, he then decided to follow his ambition of becoming an entrepreneur by founding a chai shop.
The 22-year-old is now a crorepati with his brand at 22 locations across the country and plans to open an international location soon. He finished 2020 with an annual turnover in excess of Rs 3 crore.
Mr Billore Ahmedabad was the original name of the shop, but because many of his visitors couldn’t say it right, he changed it to MBA Chaiwala.
MBA also served as a metaphor for his ideal degree, and he has been marketing tea under that name.
