It was the desire to achieve more than living and working for the wealth of another that began the Patel Family's journey to build their own business. After years of working in factory assembly lines throughout the city of Chicago, opportunity came knocking when a small Indian grocery store was for sale on little known Devon Avenue. A pair of brothers and their families decided to take on this new venture and by pooling meager savings they were able to purchase the small grocery located at 2034 W. Devon Avenue. In September of 1974, Patel Brothers was born.
After several years of hard work and success the Brothers noticed a growing influx of Indians arriving in America and living coast to coast. Even with the growing Indian population, many ingredients were not available or very expensive. As Entrepreneurs at heart, they decided to take the plunge and gave everything they had to building a national brand. Taking it 1 store at a time, we are humbled to say that Patel Brothers has 52 nationwide locations and continues to grow with several new locations planned this year.
Today, Patel Brothers owes its success to the perseverance, hard work and dedication of five generations. It was this commitment to tradition and hard work that marked our beginning; and, it is this commitment that has sustained our family run business for nearly four decades.
Our rich heritage is closely linked to our culinary traditions. Many Indian traditions and beliefs are directly related to the foods we eat and the dishes we prepare. With the strict vegetarian diets found in many areas of India, ingredients like dals, lentils, and rice are nutritional cornerstones of Indian cuisine. The culinary diversity of India’s various regions is tied together by a common thread; no Indian meal would be complete without the intense flavor of aromatic, all-natural Indian spices.
