It is said age is just a number and mind is everything. The adage has been proved correct once again by Pratibha Kunoi from Mumbai who is a granny and the founder of Mommy’s Kitchen. Spare a few minutes to know more about her entrepreneur journey.

Lockdown brought mixed results
Lockdown throughout the country had led to the loss of lives and employment but it also fostered entrepreneurships mindset worldwide.

Granny turns entrepreneur
Pratibha Kanoi, from Mumbai, the owner of “Mommy’s Kitchen” started her entrepreneur career at the age of 67 doing this COVID-19 lockdown period.
Pratibha, in spite of having been a housewife had a wish for a source of income for herself but it was pretty difficult for her to look for the opportunities of employment along with taking care of her 3 children as well as husband.

How the idea came?
Pratibha was conscious of her family- both the sons, their wives, and her grandchildren. When lockdown took place in the month of March, it became very difficult for the grandchildren who were living without having street food from the market. That’s why she started to make their favorite street foods at home which also included Pizza.

Her sons Vishal and Vikas Kanoi, being impressed by the taste and quality of their mom’s pizza, encouraged her to start a small business using her culinary skills. Now a dream of having her own income source was on the way to becoming true.

Launching Of Mommy’s Kitchen
On May 2, 2020, she launched Mommy’s Kitchen which serves vegetarian pizzas to the customers.

Mommy’s Kitchen menu includes a large variety of pizzas. Some of those are -Margherita, Primavera, Diet- Pizza, and “Mommy’s Special Signature” pizza.

Even her pasta is also served with the number of varieties like- Cheese Spaghetti, Spaghetti Arrabbiata, and Aglio E Olio, etc. All these pizzas and pasta items are priced between Rs. 425 and Rs. 555 for the large size (for pizza, it’s 14 inches).

She makes all her recipes
The homemaker makes the ingredients herself -the gravy, dough for a pizza base and paneer, etc. She puts hygiene on the top priority.

Her in-house team assists her a lot which includes stay-at-home cooks. Delivery across only Mumbai city is done via dedicated chauffeurs, bikers, and services like Dunzo.

As her pizza is getting popular day by day, the production level is being increased. Pratibha’s daughter is now in charge of getting online orders

Corporate gifting orders
Most of the orders are for more than one pizza. They usually get corporate gifting requests. Those who want pizzas as the gift for their loved ones, those orders are provided to them gift-wrapped. On the weekends, they get usually 100 plus orders in a day.
