Analysts at Kotak Institutional Equities expect the company to grow its revenue at a compounded annual rate of 20% and the earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) by 30% by March 2025. However, the revival from the COVID-19 lockdown this year was relatively slower because many of its outlets are located within malls, which remained shut, or the footfalls remained low, for longer than in other restaurants.
