Who We Are
Gourmet Hub is the brain child of an Entrepreneur Taarun V Jain of Legend Group, who has nearly 15 years of experience in retail real estate, Taarun could see the changing habits and trends of regular shoppers and, being in real estate his whole life, estimated the downturn of the on-foot retail shopping in India. Thus, came the idea of Gourmet Hub, a Mall Business Concept that drives itself through by creating a channel of unique restaurateurs & retailers by combining them with appropriate strategic locations.
Concept of "Gourmet Hub"
Taarun of Legend Group has modelled a successful business venture. It is a concept that can today be implemented by any builder or construction company that looks to optimize its profits after commissioning a mall or a large retail space.
The gourmet hub is a turnkey venture by which a builder can convert their new mall / old mall with fallow space into a mega profit making venture. With a multitude of solutions, Legend Group acts as the perfect bridge between the retailer and the mall owner.
As a builder it can be a tedious task to get together a cartel of over 200 restaurateurs & retailers or for that matter manage with all their demands and even collect regular rent from all, especially in these times of unsure profits owing to lower footfalls in pure retail malls.
So, if a builder signs with Legend Group, they provide the mall owner with the right retail mix. This would mean the exact mix between high end retail brands and budget brands combined with the right mix of fine dining restaurants and simple fast-food joints.
Legend Group works on a very clear cut strategy of recognizing the potential of the market, based on the surrounding locality and income profile. This can be seen in cities like Delhi NCR region where traditional areas like Punjabi Bagh would have a higher clientele for Mughlai, Indian or Punjabi cuisine compared to say areas like South Delhi where people are ready to experiment with Mexican, Lebanese or even Japanese cuisine.
The Gourmet Hub will basically be an "all in all mall" concept where all elements of fine dining and entertainment would have been amalgamated perfectly, with more focus on attracting the gastronomes through their varied array of eateries. The gourmet hub would comprise of everything from multi ‐cuisine restaurants like ethnic Indian, American, Japanese, Lebanese, Mexican, Italian, Thai, Spanish, Chinese, Oceanic, Continental, Asian, African and world dining. Whether it is a food court or health food mart, this venture will give deep thought to every fine detail. Authentic international cuisine mixed with a fine environment is a natural recipe for success. .
Why a Combination Concept is Needed?
Gourmet Hub will be a Chain of Malls which are going to be opened all over India - a chain that combines the perfect restaurant, retailer and entertainment mix. For e.g., if one Gourmet Hub opens in Punjabi Bagh, their restaurant mix would be more inclined to the Mughlai, Chinese, and Italian cuisine with an average dining cost of approx Rs. 1000 per person; and retails options like Zara, Levis, Bossini etc.
Legend Group set out 2 years ago to create a group of approx 300 restaurateurs and 200 retailers to come on board to create this concept. Today the Legend Group has collectively signed all major brands and has created strategic themes all across the country. Today, let's say if a builder has a mall in Noida, they can contact Legend Group who will do a turnkey solution and establish the complete mall with the perfect retail food and entertainment mix.
With approximately 5 Locations already signed in Delhi and ready to launch, Legend Group wishes to create about 50 Gourmet Hub Destinations in North India itself.
