SWATHI K.S

Shree Vasavi Food
Partner, Project Hunger

Swathi Ks,  was handed the proud baton of running The Vasavi Condiments a few years ago, from her mother who founded the establishment and has been successfully running it for 20 years.  From a complete corporate professional to a flourishing entrepreneur and leader, she made the transition gracefully by learning and unlearning the nuance of business. She has taken on the responsibility to feed not just the patrons, but also so many families of folks who worked at Vasavi.
Being the star she is,  she kept breaking the stereotypes, handling all the complications patriarchy kept throwing at her - all while taking Vasavi up the ladder.  
Today under her amazing  leadership Vasavi is growing in all its true sense,  giving Franchises and spreading wings, once again championing the perspective of collective growth.

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style"
