Company: Muchhad Paan Wala
History of Muchhad Paan wala:
At the gorgeous corner of Breach Candy, stands one of the most popular paan walas of Mumbai, Muchhad Paan Wala. Although, the shop is like a typical paan wala shop on the street, there is something that drags even the top Bollywood heartthrobs to him. One of them is the veteran actor, Jackie Shroff. Jackie is a regular visitor to his paan shop.
It all began since the time Shayam arrived to Mumbai from Allahabad. He was running this business on a very small scale, when his sons took the initiative and made it reach to the peak. Today, the popularity has increased unexpectedly. At present, Jaishankar Tiwari, his third generation has taken control of the business.
You will be delighted to see a variety of paans at his shop. Thinking of the shop my mouth started watering already! With the innovation and creativity in his paan, the demand went to high that today he is a Millionaire. Some of his highlights are; Meetha Paan, Kalkatta, Maggai, Banarasi, Ladies Special and many more.
It is no doubt that most customers visit this place for its splendid taste and what else would you expect than exchanging conversations on the breach candy street. The journey was almost as good as impossible. The owners never thought that they will become so popular just by selling paan and that people will relish their paan taste for years.
Today, Muchhad Paan wala takes bulk order for wedding receptions and other special events. There is one more reason why Muchhad is so famous; as the name suggests, his long moustaches (mooch) almost touches his ears and he has maintained those well. This is how the name Muchhad came into existence.
Every time you visit this paan shop, the Tiwari brothers offer you immense satisfaction as if you have visited a family. They always welcome everyone warmly irrespective of their class, status, or personality. Paan is known as beetle in English and has some magical properties. It is one of the important and noticeable mouth fresheners in many parts of India.

What motivates us from their success story?
So far, the paan shop has launched 84 varieties of paan. Despite enjoying the heights of success, they still open their shop at sharp 7 am and close by 1:30 am. In an interview with Indianexpress, “My grandfather always loved paan which is why he set up a shop for it. After that my father took over and now I look after it. I joined the business in 1987 and find working here extremely satisfying. This shop is our bread and butter.”
Muchhad brothers did not complete any marketing degrees not did any course on customer orientation, but this did not push them back to be innovative in their business. They have introduced some more flavors to attract their customers and all the flavors are a big hit! Some to mention are, Chocolate, Strawberry, Raspberry, Pineapple, and Ganga Jamuna. Ganga Jamuna has a vareity of electrifying fillings to give you a kick. Ganga Jamuna is the most demanded among the customers.
After years of struggle and hard work the company also opened their website, where they take online orders. They have in-house workers who take orders and give quick deliveries, in order to prevent the traffic on road by the car walas who wait eagerly for the paan.
Who knew that this Paanwala will get visitors from Bollywood too? A few regular celebs to be noted enjoying paans at late nights are, Salman Khan, Sunil Shetty, Amitabh Bachchan, and Govinda. One of the benefits of seeing celebs so frequently is that it is close to Napean Sea Road.
