Sachin Tendulkar has a razor-sharp business mind. The hundreds of crores that he earned from cricket and modelling have been carefully salted away and invested in the restaurant chain called “Tendulkars“. The restaurant business offers high margins with low overheads and Sachin saw his net worth zoom to new heights. Sachin did the sensible thing of getting into a joint venture with Sanjay Narang.
Inspired by Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, the left arm pace bowler, is set to do the same. He has sensibly invested his savings in the hospitality business by starting a new venture called “Zaheer Khan’s Hospitality”. This venture has opened a restaurant called “ZK’s” and has a corporate catering facility called “Banquet Foyer”.
Zaheer Khan has tasted so much success with this venture that he has now started his third restaurant – a sports lounge in Pune – called ‘TOSS’.
TOSS offers sports lovers the opportunity to enjoy good food and drinks in a lounge atmosphere.
Now this is a brilliant move by Zaheer Khan because we know, after Sachin Tendulkar, that cricketers can make a huge success out of the restaurant/ hospitality business.
The proof is in the pudding! If you look at Zaheer Khan’s net worth now, it is in excess of Rs. 50 crore. The best thing is that the venture generates a return on investment (ROI) of over 25 percent. This means, that the net worth of Rs. 50 crores will compound at a rapid pace in the near future.
Zaheer Khan showed that he had an excellent marketing mind as well. To launch the sports lounge, TOSS, in Pune, Zaheer Khan invited all the top brass of cricket like Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle who sang paeans about Zaheer Khan’s brilliant business mind. Unfortunately, Sachin Tendulkar was not present though he has already given valuable tips on how one can increase the net worth.
