The Founders

Sigri Indian BBQ is the result of the lifelong passion of our founder Jagat Parikh. With an entrepreneurial attitude and dreams of success, Jagat set foot in this line of business 15 years ago. A proud owner of Multi Concepts LLC, a franchisee owner and, 5 of his very own convenience stores later, Jagat is still chasing the dream – his dream to own his own unique restaurant. As a part of the Newark community for almost two decades, Jagat saw the lack of international food options available to the very diverse college and corporate campuses. He has set out to bring Sigri Indian BBQ’s unique taste to this ever on the run crowd. Jagat x Sigri Indian BBQ are ready to bring traditional flavors to its audiences in an approachable format.
