Venkatesh says that all the franchise expansion has happened because people had heard of Goli vadapav, eaten it and then wanted to start it in their city.
Goli has started some new items like Sabudana vada, palak-makai vada and masala vada.
Other food introduced by Goli is the Dabba( Tiffin)– the equivalent of a combo meal. Targeted at college and office parties, these dabbas contain a vada pav, a nugget (either a hara bara kabab or aloo Chaska) and a brownie as the sweet dish.
Venkatesh claims there are many inquiries from abroad like Dubai, the UAE and the UK, but they think there is much more to be done in India itself. They want to increase their business in India and wants to compete with MacDonald and other big brands.
