    Samrat Reddy, Founder, Drunken Monkey

  • Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision, Peter Drucker. Er. Samrat Reddy, Founder of Drunken Monkey is one such courageous leader who decided to quit his job at Infosys when he was placed in Australia and be an entrepreneur. During his stay in Australia, he observed that the number of places that serve coffee is far greater than places that serve smoothies. He felt if given a chance to experience smoothies, a huge number of people would turnover and incorporate them into their lifestyle. Being a fitness enthusiast himself, Samrat wanted others to include a healthy beverage as a part of their meal. Looking to fill the huge gap in people’s lifestyles as well as in the market he conducted extensive research on the potential of the smoothie market and subsequently came up with a business plan. In 2016, he inaugurated the first outlet of Drunken Monkey in Hyderabad. Ever since then there was no looking back. Today he owns 110+ outlets across Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Bengaluru & Kolkata. The Young Turk has worn many caps all under which he has nurtured different dreams only because of his habit of never giving up on learning. Let’s hear it from Samrat.
