Our offerings varied unit to unit with mixed results – both in terms of quality and financials. They gave us a foundation that helped take our vision from a hand sketch to execution on a national level within months.”

“Masala by Marigold products have given us the confidence to tell potential clients and existing clients that we can deliver a high quality and authentic Indian program – as a dedicated venue or only as a weekly rotation – as the population dictates. The program works operationally. It can work with standard equipment sets, making retrofits and refresh projects very easy. While training is required, the products and the program guides make it possible for us to execute without any specialized staff or outsourcing.” 

– Division President, Contract Foodservice

“The Masala program gives us the ability to create an authentic and consistent Cultural Cuisine experience for our guests on a mass scale while still giving the in-house made feel and flavor. It's flexible and allows for multiple derivative dishes utilizing a core of base products. It also allows for customization based on wellness or population preferences. With the recent addition of the 3 Southern Indian influenced sauces now gives us the ability to key in on regionality of customer base. Financial benefits include higher check average, better productivity and increased sales.”
