June 30, 2020 // Franchising.com // SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Curry Up Now, the nation’s largest and fastest growing Indian concept that is best known for its innovative Indianeats, will officially launch its new Tandoori Fried Chicken Sandwich at all Bay Area, Calif. restaurants on National Fried Chicken Day, July 6.
