So here at BoroughBox we really love to get to know and highlight our sellers. Everything we stock and sell, we’ve pretty much tried and tested ourselves. That way we can fully immerse ourselves into the products and the producers vision, therefor bringing you the best customer experience.
We took a little time recently with one of our sellers; Family Secret, a curry sauce and chutney producer. After speaking with Sunny Mudhar the guy behind the brand, we got an even better insight. Sunny’s background has been Pharmaceuticals but has always had a passion for food. With a name so mysterious, we really wanted to know what was going on back there. Sunny has said it ‘really is a Family operation here, with my wife, sisters, nieces and even my Mum and Dad all getting involved at some point.’
BB: With moving away from Pharmaceuticals, and into cooking, what are the major comparisons (and/or) contrasts in the nature of the work?
Sunny: Well Pharmaceuticals you’re ultimately trying to bring good innovative products to help people with their health, kind of similar with food, we are trying to bring healthy wholesome foods to help people and their health via their diet.
BB: You’ve said that your whole family play a part in the business, and this paints a wonderful picture of a very wholesome and trustworthy brand. I am from a big family too, and I know what it can be like working up close and side by side. What would be your advise for anyone else and their family, who are thinking about running their own business start up?
Sunny: My advise would be, be ready to work extremely hard, however, its very rewarding when you can buy things like a Tuk Tuk as we’ve done to help promote the business. Anything goes and you can call all the shots, just make sure they are good shots as when you’re small getting small things wrong can hurt.
Having the family involved means that everyone is routing for one common goal and that’s Success. However, having to work with family can have its pitfalls, just make sure everyone has their clear instructions on what they’re meant to do. Just as when you’re kids even grown ups can chuck their toys out the pram when they don’t get what they want.
