The chapter will give fillip to locally developed brands to go national and global.

Jayesh Ranjan said, "Hyderabad is known as a food hub, the city is reputed for its rich culinary tradition not just in India, even abroad. The restaurants and hospitality sector contributed enormously to the city gaining recognition as a global and cosmopolitan destination. An association of national repute like NRAI establishing a Hyderabad Chapter is an important milestone for the sector. The industry is also generating employment for locals and for workers coming from all over India."
