Curry Up Now is expanding its takeout and delivery service in the Bay Area, bringing its Tikka Masala Burrito, Sexy Fries, Indian Street Foods and more to the Lamorinda area. The expanded footprint is made possible through a collaboration with Local Kitchens, a delivery kitchen concept focused on partnering with exceptional local brands to expand off-premise dining opportunities. Curry Up Now has plans for several additional Bay Area and national outposts in the coming months.
“With such strong roots in the Bay Area, we are thrilled to expand our reach and offer a convenient way for more people to connect with our food,” says Akash Kapoor, co-founder and CEO, Curry Up Now. “Lafayette is a great community with a strong foodie culture, and this collaboration with Local Kitchens helps us expand ‘through the tunnel’ to serve more families and diners where they live, work and play. We are also looking at similar outposts in Southern California, New York and Texas.”
The Lafayette delivery kitchen builds on Curry Up Now’s expansive Bay Area presence, with locations in San Jose, Palo Alto, San Mateo, Oakland and San Francisco. While Curry Up Now was servicing the Lamorinda area from its Oakland location, Kapoor wanted to find an effective way to shorten delivery times. Now, locals can order Curry Up Now from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily with delivery times cut in half by serving approximately an eight-mile radius from Lafayette. Curry Up Now fans have multiple options to place a pickup or delivery order, including ordering online at www.curryupnow.com or by downloading the Curry Up Now mobile app. In addition, in-person ordering is available at the Local Kitchens kiosk located at 3455 Mount Diablo Boulevard in Lafayette.
“In addition to being a beloved Bay Area food brand, Curry Up Now has been consistently ahead of the curve on the future of the restaurant industry,” says Jon Goldsmith, founder and CEO, Local Kitchens. “In fact, I became familiar with Curry Up Now doing deliveries for its Palo Alto store as a DoorDash employee in 2013, when they were one of the earliest adopters of delivery. Flash forward and we’re now able to expand the brand’s reach through Local Kitchens and bring Curry Up Now’s amazing Indian street food favorites to a broader audience.”
The delivery kitchen staff completed extensive training with the Curry Up Now team, supervised by Local Kitchens Head of Culinary Matthew Rudofker and talented kitchen managers with experience at some of New York and San Francisco’s top restaurants. Local Kitchens uses proprietary technology to ensure every order is prepared with quality, consistency and efficiency to create an exceptional and convenient experience for customers.
