K Hospitality Corp was founded over 40 years ago in Mumbai, India by Mr. J.K. Kapur (or "JK" as he was fondly known). He had migrated to Mumbai from modern day Pakistan on top of a train with his sisters and a few suitcases in tow, and landed in Mumbai to build his life from scratch. Over the years he built up a movie production business, but his passion for food had defined his life and ultimately led him to start an Indian restaurant known as "Copper Chimney" in the heart of Mumbai.
Since its launch, Copper Chimney has been considered a pioneer in the Indian restaurant space, with a live open kitchen, one of the first in India, along with superlative tasty Indian food served in a high-end ambience. Guests would line up at the display kitchen to watch "Ustad's" (highly qualified chefs who had carried culinary traditions down for generations) tossing Copper Chimney's signature Roomali Rotis in the air and preparing fresh grilled kebabs.
Today, built on the foundation of providing memorable high quality food experiences to their guests, K Hospitality Corp has expanded to become one of the top hospitality & food service companies in India, privately held, with operations across:

Specialty Restaurants












Large-Scale F&B Venues Concession Management








Outdoor Catering




Sports and Corporate Catering




Travel Retail




Led by the Kapur Family and a team of professionals across its various verticals, K Hospitality Corp operates across 500+ locations in India and abroad, with a strong and focused development plan to continue to grow as a leading, well-respected food and beverage player in the global industry.
