A high-profile CEO can add spice to a restaurant business but it needs other ingredients too: like the taste of the food it produces and the quality of the staff who work there.

Mowgli Street Food combines all three. It was founded in 2014 by Nisha Katona, the food writer and former lawyer who is often seen on TV cookery shows; the restaurants serve what it calls “the smash and grab zing of healthy, light, virtuosic herbs and spices”; and the workforce has helped it expand from the original site in Liverpool to cities including Manchester, Cardiff and Nottingham.

This large company, whose menus are based on Katona's favourite Indian dishes, has 11 branches with more planned, notwithstanding the challenges currently posed to the hospitality industry by the pandemic.

As an employer, it has a culture of making sure team members feel nourished, purposeful and fulfilled. It achieves this through its pay rates, benefits packages and wellbeing programmes.

Mowgli's mission of "enriching the lives of the cities we go to" applies to both staff and customers. A strong sense of purpose also drives the company's charitable arm, the Mowgli Trust, supporting three big international charities and the work they do in India.

Each restaurant also helps a local charity, such as Maggie's, Nottingham Children's Hospital and Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in Sheffield, which the teams support through volunteering and fundraising initiatives.

Featured Workplace Factors

Wellbeing

83% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Restaurant managers received training so that they could support teams with their mental health during lockdowns. The company also raised awareness for World Mental Health Day. All team members had access to a My Wellbeing module directing them to sources of support.

Fair Deal

82% of staff agreed

I am paid fairly for the work I do relative to people in similar positions in similar organisations

Team members who are nominated by colleagues, based on their performance and how they have been ambassadors for Mowgli's values, are taken on an all-expenses-paid trip on which they experience the culture and sights of India. The visit allows them to see the impact of the trust's work.

Giving Something Back

87% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

The company takes seriously its responsibility to the environment and the communities in which it trades and last year joined the Sustainable Restaurant Association. It partners with Neighbourhood Coffee to support direct trade agreements with farmers and introduced the Mowgli app to reduce the use of paper menus.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
