Do you know the story behind your favourite sweet place?

Sweets and savories – the bread and butter of any festivity. Time to hit the sweet shops in town to load up on the celebratory delicacies. Here is our round-up of stores you could visit for your sweet indulgence.

This sweet shop was a small establishment back in the early 80’s and how the shop got its name is an interesting story. One of the customers then commented that the sweets tasted really ‘grand’. Once that adjective stuck, the name came into being.

The Grand Sweets and Snacks was founded in 1982 by Mr. G. Natarajan, at Gandhi Nagar, Adyar in Chennai, utilizing Bangaruamma’s culinary skill. Traditional recipes made and handed down by the old ladies of the house – Mysore pak , Laddoo as well as the crunchy, savoury ‘mixture’ made it an instant hit. Grand Sweets is well-known for their quality and taste. Slowly and steadily, this brand has grown into a store of global fame. The best ingredients are sourced with no compromise on quality and prepared painstakingly by specialised staff who have decades of experience in preparing traditional sweets and savories.

For over 25 years, The Grand Sweets and Snacks has been the most sought-after outlet for all festival needs. Customers from far and wide throng the store for their favourites. In response to the growing demand of customers, the store has opened outlets across Chennai. A centralized factory in suburban Chennai prepares the sweets and snacks with reputable quality and hygiene. Their specialties you should have on your list are the Adhirasam, Bahusha, and Laddu among the sweets,  and the savouries include special mixture and the kai murukkku.
