Director, Shantai Hotel

Kunal Mhaske is the man responsible for the revamp of Pune's definition of good times. Graduating from the renowned Royal Holloway University of London, he came back to the city he calls home and joined his family business in 2009. Within three years, he had his goals ready to give Punekars an experience of good hospitality. He opened the doors to Pesto Pesto and Penthouze in 2012.

Ever since he has been coming up with ideas that are creating trends of their own. Raasta today is a leading franchise with 4 outlets around the city. The most recent being Coco- Sushi and Bar, a place to redefine culinary and ambience expectations of all. With such refined taste in this industry, his company's core lies in franchising and consultancy for F&B. With plans of providing the city party goers with the best places to hang out, he is now gearing up for the opening of one more outlet of Penthouze soon. Reinventing the culinary and nightlife of the city with changing times is what he does best.

Today his ventures are scattered in the most prime locations of the city with regular additions of fresh ideas popping up every year.
