Indy Chatwal is a young (23 Years old) British Businessman based in London. Indy went straight into Sales after school. He advanced up the ladder rapidly, doing very well for someone his age. However, it was only a matter of time before his business buds began to emerge and he wanted to be a successful Entrepreneur like his father Baldeep Singh Chatwal.
Indy opened Barossa Fulham in Feb 2013. Barossa Fulham is an Independent Coffee House & Australian Kitchen that is located at 277 New Kings Road, Fulham, London, SW6 4RD. Barossa Fulham is recognised as one of the leading Coffee Shops in the UK for its high standards in service, food, coffee and decor. Inspired by the cafe life so prevalent in Australia; Barossa prides itself on excellent, professionally made espresso coffee and loose-leaf teas.
In the short time that Barossa has been under Indy’s ownership he has worked hard to ensure this business is reaching its full potential. This has earned them a mention in London’s TimeOut Magazine as one of the best 20 Coffee Shops in London. An incredible achievement and testament to the hard work, passion and commitment Indy and his team have put in. Indy’s plans are to open a chain of Coffee Shops around West London using the same successful concept.
Building a sense of community within the business has been Indy’s focus and has paid off with 90% being local repeat business. His customers say ‘This is a great place; friendly staff with brilliant food and drinks on offer.’
Indy’s advice for any other budding entrepreneurs is “Nothing motivates you more than working for yourself. Its an amazing feeling. Just make sure you have a clear business plan and stick to it. Set yourself ambitious goals and strive to succeed them. It’s a lot of hard work and graft, but the rewards are endless…”
Barossa is also available to hire for functions.
