LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – A new restaurant in Lynchburg, Annie’s Indian Kitchen, plans to donate 60% of its profits to the community by supporting local organizations.
Annie’s Indian Kitchen opened on Wednesday, September 29 at its location on Forest Road.
State Senator Steve Newman was in attendance, along with other elected officials.
The owner of Annie’s Indian Kitchen, Dr Prince Arvind, is a former pastor from Charlotte who moved to the United States about five years ago.
According to Dr Arvind, this is one of the only restaurants in the region that sells authentic South Indian food, saying its main goal is to give back to the community.
“We want to invest this money to make this community grow and be healthier,” said Dr. Arvind. “The important thing is that I have truly been blessed because America has blessed me with education.”
The owner says he wants to help develop young entrepreneurs, help educate children, empower women and increase local employment opportunities.
