• The Leading Supermarket and Departmental Store chain in Nepal.
  • History

    Since 1984 A.D, Bhat-Bhateni has grown from a 120 sq. ft. store to become Nepal’s no. 1 retail sector tax payer with more than 50,000 customers daily.

    Mr. & Mrs. Min B. Gurung started Bhat-Bhateni cold store in 1984.

    This ordinary ‘single shutter’ store has since transformed to become Thirteen(13) leading supermarket and departmental stores in Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Pokhara, Chitwan, Dharan and Butwal as this timeline shows.

    Son of a farmer with six siblings, Mr. Min B. Gurung had a successful banking career after completing his university education. He had the vision and courage to leave this job to lead Bhat-Bhateni in a full-time capacity following the expansion to a two floor (3,000 sq. ft.) supermarket in 1992.

    The opening of the Maharajgunj superstore in September 2008, then three stores opened in Koteshwor-kathmandu, Chuchepati-Bouddha , Krishna Galli-Pulchowk in 2011 A.D.,Pokhara Store opened in 2012, Anamnagar, Balaju and Kalanki stores opened in 2014, Chitwan and Dharan stores opened in 2016, similarly Butwal store opened in 2017 set the current benchmark for the business, with over 4,500 combine staff helping customers chose between 150,000 products across a 10,00,000sq. ft. sales area.

    Having achieved more than most people can hope for in a lifetime, Mr. Min B. Gurung has only just started. An ambitious expansion plan will see many new stores in Kathmandu and across Nepal over the next few years and a new warehouse unit has opened at Baluwatar. The Bhat-Bhateni story has only just started.
