HOCCO's legacy goes all the way back to 1944 when our founder Satish Chona started off an ice-cream parlour under the name of Have More in Karachi in colonial India. He migrated to India post-Partition, carrying along his love for good food and great innovation. Soon, Ahmedabad saw India's first ever Have More restaurant and ice-cream parlour, which later transformed to the iconic brand of Havmor.
In 2017, South Korean conglomerate Lotte Confectionery acquired the Havmor ice-cream business for ₹1,020 crore. Subsequently, the Chona family rebranded their restaurant business to HOCCO Eatery, HOCCO being the abbreviation of House of Chonas Collaborative. HOCCO Eatery now has over 50 fast-casual eateries across eight cities in India and one in Virginia, USA — all offering a menu of comfort food classics. The parent company HRPL also runs Huber & Holly — a freshly churned ice-cream brand with 15 stores across six cities — and 1944 The HOCCO Kitchen that has over 15 casual dining restaurants offering north Indian cuisine.Learn more
