ROHIT'S - Like father, like son

Inspired by Dad

Founder Rohit Walia was inspired to start ROHIT’S because of his dad, Dave. A brilliant chef, Dave had an insatiable sweet tooth and taught Rohit everything he knew about flavor, texture, and celebrating with family. 

Because of his type 2 diabetes, Dave couldn’t enjoy his favorite mithai for years. So, Rohit decided to make something better. After thousands of tests in his home kitchen, he found the perfect burfi recipe that tastes great and is truly better for you.
