The Chapati Man story
Chapati Man was created by husband and wife team, Chris and Andrea Rai in back 2007. The idea came from Chris taking left-over curry in a wrap to work, which soon evolved into the Chapati Man concept. We started our journey by selling Spicy Indian Wraps at major music festivals and events in the UK. We are now mainstay at festivals and events such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Lakefest and The Handmade Fair.
Chapati Man was voted No.1 food caterer at Glastonbury Festival 2007 by Virtual Festivals.com (achieved in our first year of trading). More recently, we were voted in the top three ‘Essential Eats of Glastonbury 2017’ (out of 300 on-site traders!). Chapati Man’s chicken saag wrap, with fresh mint chutney and a cachumber salad also won the National category at the British Sandwich Designer of the Year Finals 2011. We made our retail debut with a national supply deal with Morrisons (successfully trading within the supermarket for over 2 years), and we followed this up in 2013 by launching our Indian snack range in Waitrose.
Over the past three years, Chapati Man have brought our spicy Indian wraps to London’s’ premier pitches of Broadgate Circle, Paddington Central, Chiswick Park, White City Place and Finsbury Avenue Square, serving lunch to city workers across London on a weekly basis.
Our vision was always to change the way we eat Indian food in the UK from a sit-down meal to tasty, hot and easy-to-handle fresh food on the go or at your desk and we feel that Chapati Man has achieved this.
After eleven consistently successful years, we now see a natural transition from a single trailer to a ‘herd’ of franchised Chapati Man trucks. Having extended our fan base from all the major UK music festivals to the London street food scene and into the chiller shelves of major multiples such as Morrisons and Waitrose, we feel its the right time to bring our freshly prepared ‘festival-style’ wraps to the rest of UK (including London), Europe and worldwide.
