Expansion Plans

Pahayidom is planning to expand with a two pronged approach. First, it’s looking at establishing itself as a restaurant brand. It’s opened a vegetarian restaurant in Idukkki and plans to open two more restaurants in Cochin and Bangalore.


Additionally, it is planning to export frozen snacks and Kerala feast items to Australia, Europe and the Middle East.

Commenting on the expansion, Pazhayidom Mohanan Namboothiri said “We are planning to send the first consignment to Australia in October as the response for Kerala dishes in that market is encouraging. The items exported will be frozen snacks, and Kerala traditional feast items like kalan, pachadi, sambar and so on…”
