Mirah Group, owner of well-known resto chain ‘Rajdhani Thali’ and QSR chain Falafels, is planning to raise PE funds to expand its Citrus chain of hotels, which would mark the first such fund raise for the group as stated by Mint.
The group also plans to expand its F&B business through own funds and MD Gaurav Goenka did not reveal the amount of funds that will be raised.
He added the company’s plan to add nine more Citrus hotels to the existing eight for which the land has been acquired and that cost of construction for a single room in the hotel comes up to around R75 lakh.
SAIF Partners, one of the early backers of BSE listed local search directory, Just Dial has sold close to 2.4% stake in the company for a total of INR254 Cr. The part exit fetches the fund, a 30x returns on its seven year old investment.
