Inception of the Idea

An innovative take on concept dining, Drive & Dine is a brainchild of the brother-sister duo, Insha and Yash Malhotra. They noticed how people were not as afraid to step out of the house if it was for drives as being in their own space made them comfortable. This is what sparked the idea! Having graduated from Cornell University in Hotel management in 2017 both of them joined the family business founded by their father, Vikas, and now they run 4 hotels, 10 restaurants, and 16 event spaces together.
