The Grand Sweets and Snacks was founded in 1982 by Mr. G. Natarajan, a first generation entrepreneur, who after a series of business setbacks, started this food business in a small way at Gandhi Nagar, Adyar in Chennai. by capitalizing his wife Bangaruamma's culinary skill, dipped into her personal recipies and started making and selling the generic snacks, traditionally made by the old ladies of the house - the sweet Mysore pak and laddoo as well as the crunchy, savoury 'mixture'. The marketing had a personalized touch the elderly Brahmin would hand out religious booklets to bigger customers. As the business grew, he hired more staff, mostly women, and expanded the variety of foods on offer.

Grand Sweets' offerings are legendary for their quality and taste. The manner in which the shop got its name is an interesting story. This sweet shop was a small establishment back in the early 80's and one of the customers commented that the sweets tasted really 'grand'. That's how the name came into being 'The Grand Sweets and Snacks'

Slowly and steadily today it has a grown into a store of global fame. The world wide clientele was built on a strong foundation of tradition, hygiene and simple home atmosphere.

What keeps this kitchen running like a well-oiled machine are the 50 or so master cooks who have been with the company for more than 20 years, each a specialist in his/her product. Take for example Rukmini mami a.k.a. Poli mami. The soft-spoken septuagenarian has been making polis - Mangalore and Thengai polis at Grand Sweets and Snacks for the last 25 years.

The best ingredients are sourced with no compromise on quality and prepared painstakingly by specialized staff who have decades of experience in preparing traditional sweets and savories. We never use any preservatives or artificial flavouring in any of our items. Our products are prepared fresh everyday.

For over 25 years, The Grand Sweets and Snacks has been a single outlet to keep up with tradition and quality. Due to the growing demand of customers and to save the customers trouble of commuting from other parts of Chennai to Adyar, we decided to open a few baby steps and open a few outlets across Chennai. A Centralized factory in suburban Chennai is where the sweets and snacks are prepared to maintain highest quality and hygiene. Items are prepared on a daily basis and delivered to our outlets in Adyar, Sastri Nagar, Anna Nagar and T. Nagar outlets.

In each of our outlets, there is an open kitchen which serves traditional items like adai- avial, appam-stew, kuzhi paniyaram, thanjavur poli etc. Our main products are the traditional Indian sweets like laddoo, jangiri, jilebi, poli, Bengali sweets, pedas etc, and savouries like murukku, thattai, cheedai, mixture etc., along with ready made rice mixes like pulikkachal, paruppu podi and thokkus ( a thick pickled sauce) of onion, coriander, curry leaf, tomato, kadambam(mixed vegetable) etc., which have a shelf life of 3 months.

In April 2011, Grand Sweets and Snacks launched their one of a kind Pure Veg Restaurant offering meals and snacks from noon until 10:00 PM at the newly opened outlet in Bazzula Road in T. Nagar.

Our customers get to taste the prasadam in leaf bowls called 'donnai' along with free booklets on culture and traditions. These prasadam are given soon after their morning prayers and evening prayers to all our customers.

Our quality is a reflection of the way we take care of our employees. All permanent employees get good compensation with proper allowances, health and retirement benefits.
