Desi Shack: Location Choice in the Big Apple
Desi Shack is a “fast casual” restaurant, started by two HBS alumni, that serves Indian and Pakistani cuisine in midtown Manhattan. The founders are looking to expand into a second location and also plan to hire a COO, and there is very little room for error in the decision-making process if Desi Shack is to continue operating. This case discusses questions of location choice and hiring decisions, and provides an example of a framework entrepreneurs might use to think about the many factors that must go in to making these choices.
