The bakery known as Concu is more of a concept than a typical establishment. This concept is all about bringing European flavors to India, for individuals who cannot or have not traveled to Europe but have always desired to taste the street side cafés at London, France, and other European cities. These people are the target audience for this concept. Concu is essentially a service similar to Zomato’s International Legends, though it avoids taking this comparison literally.
The brand has a long history of providing customers with the greatest possible products and services since it was established 12 years ago by Chef Sahil Taneja and Swati Upadhyay. The concept behind this was simple: you should be able to make people happy by providing them with delicious cuisine.
Chef Taneja pursued his engineering, only to fall in love with baking. He pursued bakery course from London and decided to give his heart and soul to it. The baker has worked in many different establishments throughout London in order to gain an understanding of the many different approaches to baking, and finally found a job at The Harrods, which is a luxury store that serves nothing short than absolute perfection. Chef Taneja is indebted to the Head Chef at Harrods, who mentored him for the better part of two years and taught him the proper techniques for baking, serving, and making customers happy.
Concu was established in Hyderabad twelve years ago, when a couple came to the conclusion that there was no bakery in the area that could provide them with the European pastries that they so desperately missed. After that, there was no turning back. Both of them put forth a lot of effort to develop the business into what it is now. This particular brand is credited for pioneering the revolutionary and one-of-a-kind concept of cake boutiques. The clientele has consistently been of the highest caliber and most refined. At Concu, everyone from celebrities to politicians, as well as the most powerful and the most modest people, was welcome. The pair, who already had more than nine locations in Hyderabad, made the decision to expand their business to Namma Bengaluru. In spite of the fact that Bangalore is home to a large number of excellent bakeries, this particular brand has already achieved widespread popularity.
