Shraddha Bhansali

CEO & Co-Founder, Pride of Lions Hospitality Pvt. Ltd.

While studying at Boston University in 2010, Shraddha Bhansali conceptualized a company whose core mission would be to provide empathetic and gracious hospitality with refined service and soulful F&B offerings. Six years later, in 2016, Pride of Lions Hospitality Pvt. Ltd was born. Candy & Green is the first of many ventures under the Pride of Lions banner.

She’s a natural cook with an instinctive understanding of flavour profiles, and believes that some of the best food in the world is devoid of much artifice. 

When not experimenting with food and flavours that are healthy yet fun, Shraddha has been immersed in the world of fitness.  She believes that even the best things in life are to be enjoyed in an indulgently balanced manner and Candy and Green is testimony to that. 

This past year Shraddha has been widely recognized for her entrepreneurial spirit by the likes of Forbes who included her in their Forbes India 30 under 30 India list for 2018. Her efforts to promote green and clean eating habits have landed her prestigious publications like CNBC, Economic Times, Times of India, India Today, Travel & Leisure, Mumbai Mirror, and many more.  She has also given a TEDx talk on the importance of sustenance and sustainability in our eating habits.
