Pranshul Yadav and Arun Suvarna are the 2 co-founders of Frozen Bottle. What started as a team of 2 has now 5 full-time members for their smooth and effective organization.

They started with a clever campaign, called "Shake the Original" in 2017. It began with two 210 sq ft stores in Koramangala. Now the brand has 40 company-owned stores with 60 franchise outlets.

THE STORY BEHIND SUCCESS AND THE IDEA BEHIND THE NAME:

When Pranshul Yadav and Arun Suvarna met through common friends a few years back, who knew that they would team up for an entrepreneurial journey.

They then combined their experiences and sorted the ingredients of their business. They further tied up with an ice cream vendor to ensure quality and consistency. All that was left to do was to make it a brand name.

By the end of 2017, they began to offer to franchise. Frozen Bottle is in 18 cities including Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Pune, Surat, Manipal, Kochi, Coimbatore, etc. The majority of its revenue is earned from online delivery platforms like Uber Eats, Swiggy, Zomato, etc.

The idea behind the name was to bring in the concept of serving milkshake in a frozen bottle as according to them, there is a vast difference in taste between milkshake served in a normal glass bottle and that of a frozen bottle. They also wanted people to experience the difference. So, they kept the name Frozen Bottle.

MOTIVATION TO START THE PLATFORM:

Pranshul had his passion and heart lied in the F&B space. He started a series of franchise outlets of Cream Stone and made it the Number 1 ice cream brand of Bangalore.

"They promise an experience worth remembering and a recall value for all its customers to the good old days."

The sole focus since the starting was "to serve memories encapsulated in frozen bottles of delight." They wanted to make every client nostalgic by the taste and of course the outlets that looked so beautiful and unique.

Their first clients were their family, friends, and all the people who passed through the high streets of Kormangala. As people, for the very first time saw something different from Keventers. For the sake of trying People came, tried, and loved it. This is how it all started.
