PUTTING PASSION INTO PRACTICE
Twenty-seven-year-old Avni Biyani is the youngest daughter of Kishore Biyani, Chief Executive of Future Group. She formally joined Future Group in 2011 as the Concept Head of Foodhall. Over the years, the concept store launched at Palladium, Mumbai, garnered immense popularity with a discerning customer base and now has presence across the high-end regions of Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Bangalore. In a short span of time, Avni has established Foodhall as India’s premium lifestyle food destination – a one-stop shop offering novel concepts from around the world on one platter. The store targets the welltravelled urban Indian consumers who love to experiment with global cuisines and promises to expose customers to the next level of food retailing.
As a connoisseur of food and global cuisine, Avni loves travelling and exploring new places and has travelled extensively across the world, which has translated into her vision for Foodhall. Observing customers inspires her in many ways to comprehend a lot of business practices and selling styles. Avni is also a part of Future Group’s Integrated Food Strategy Council and is responsible for ramping up the group’s foray into the premium food segment.
Avni studied at Dhirubhai Ambani International School and graduated in sociology & politics from New York University. Apart from her interest in liberal arts and humanities and food, Avni also has a keen interest in the fashion & lifestyle segment of the business and is closely involved with the launch of India’s first fast fashion brand – Cover Story.
