Whoever buys Shanta's is getting some good intellectual properties. The name is worth alot of money because it could be used in other parts of the country and Caribbean and if these people are smart and they write down how they make their food and they have a way to make it fast. All of this is intellectual properties that comes with the business. If you fellas doubt me then ask Safraz. He is an intellectual property lawyer.
You think so? I believe that’s where the opportunity was lost. It had developed into a good name a while back but never moved beyond that one location.
While the owner was alive, They should have opened up multiple locations with specific formulas and recipes, then you have substance behind the name.
I think it will disappear in the relics of local history!
Just buy the damn place and hire the original owner and cooks. End of story.
Is it still a household name in Guyana?
Yes, especially for visiting overseas Guyanese.
The court battle is not the reason of selling. Property values have spike in GT.. what the owner will get now, will take him, maybe two generations to make selling food.
