More About Harjinder Singh Kukreja
- Post-partition most people migrated from the newly formed Pakistan and settled in Punjab, and Delhi regions, and very few families settled far in Patna Sahib, Bihar.
- His grandfather along with my father and uncles worked very hard and established Bihar’s largest cycle and motorcycle and spare parts agencies.
- Once things started coming back on track, another blow hit them hard. The 1984 anti-Sikh riots shook them and forced them to migrate to Ludhiana.
- It took them many years to wind up our businesses in Bihar and start afresh and expand in Punjab, a place where we now live and serve.
- After moving to Punjab, his father and uncle started Hot Breads in Ludhiana, often called the Manchester of India.
- At that time, the city did not have a European bakery and they were the only franchisee owners of Hot Breads, a boulangerie selling cakes and pastries.
- In 2000, my father and uncle convinced Master Chef, Sanjeev Kapoor to partner with us and open a restaurant in Ludhiana. They opened ”The Yellow Chilli”, the maiden restaurant of Chef Sanjeev Kapoor in India.
- All this inspired him to join his family business after his education.
- In 2015, he spearheaded the family’s venture into giving Ludhiana’s chocolate aficionados the city’s first ‘Belgian Chocolate Cafe’, and the Ambassador of Belgium in India, Mr. Jan Luykx, also a friend, inaugurated the cafe.
- He traveled extensively to Belgium and other European nations to seek inspiration and even underwent training in crafting real Belgian chocolate.
- He is also the first Sikh to sky-dive wearing his Turban in 2014 in Melbourne and the first Sikh to scuba-dive with his Turban in 2016 in Antalya, Turkey.
