Any brand with a heritage instantly becomes a trusted one. It doesn’t need over-the-top publicity or flashy advertisements to grab attention. What it needs is only the mention of its name and you’d find a slew of loyal customers swearing by its quality. In Mumbai, Panshikar is one such brand that has been pleasing the taste buds of Mumbaikars since 1921. Specialising in Maharashtrian snacks and cuisine, the store has always maintained its unique taste and quality gradually building up a heritage and a loyal customer base with passing years.
The eponymous store was started by Shripad Panshikar who at that point of time, was working with the post and telegraph department. He did not want to continue because he knew that wasn’t his calling. He quit his job and started assisting at a sweet shop run by his father. After gaining experience in the field of sweet and snacks creation, he decided to expand for which friends and suppliers knowing his capability, readily helped in.
From there on, it was a journey that never looked back. The Girgaum Panshikars became a name that Mumbaikars reckoned with. Today, a lot of celebrities from the city like Lata Mangeshkar, Sonali Kulkarni, Padmini Kolhapure, Smita Talwalkar, Vikram Gokhale love their products as well.
It also is one of the most popular destinations for fasting delicacies. You’d find sabudana wada, sabudana khichdi, farali missal, Thalipeeth with white butter among others. They have farali meals too. Apart from fasting food, you’d find a range of classic snacks including barfis, laddoos, bangali sweets, pedha, modaks and many more.
