The journey dates back to 1996 when Mr. Amit Mankani set up a small sweet and bakery shop, "Sweet Hut" at Boring Road, Patna with a few handpicked staff. He incepted the knowledge of providing the best quality of sweets to people at a pocket-friendly price from his father, Late Mr. Harilal Mankani who imparted the wisdom of making sweets in 1976 by setting up a sweet shop, Kamdhenu in Benaras. The entrepreneurial journey of Mr. Amit Mankani started its evolution in his teens where he helped his father in operating the retail business. He developed a keen interest in being an entrepreneur while discovering the purpose of building the best food service provider brand which offers quality food.
As a part of the market expansion strategy, he entered the fast-food sector and even started a new outlet of Sweet Hut. At the same time, his young and dynamic brother Mr. Sandeep Mankani also joined with fresh ideas and business expansion strategies after completing his studies. Soon, more expansion got drafted by both of them. The sudden demise of Mr. Harilal Mankani in February 2010 came as a setback for the family and business. At this time, both brothers Amit Mankani and Sandeep Mankani decided to dedicate their business to their late father by rebranding their Sweet Hut and other fast food outlets as Harilal’s. Ever since then the brand name Harilal’s has earned huge acknowledgment, reputation, and trust amongst the people in Bihar.
