Teachers eat free at Curry Up Now on "Teacher Tuesdays"Curry Up Now, the nation’s largest and fastest growing Indian fast casual concept, is launching “Teacher Tuesdays” to thank dedicated educators throughout the spring semester. Every Tuesday from now through May 25, teachers and school staff are invited to visit a participating Curry Up Now location for a free bowl or burrito.*

“I am of the opinion that teachers make the biggest impact on current and future generations and have been the unsung heroes during this pandemic,” said Akash Kapoor, co-founder and CEO, Curry Up Now. “Whether these dedicated educators are teaching virtually or returning to the classroom, giving them a delicious, hot meal every week during the spring semester is one way we can show a small token of our appreciation.”

Known for its innovative spin on traditional Indian cuisine, Curry Up Now serves one-of-a-kind takes on Indian street foods – from Tikka Masala Burritos to Deconstructed Samosas.
