Our Business Overview

I (Kuldip Singh Uppal) came to Hong Kong from India three decades ago. My father, Tarsem Singh Uppal, once served in the former British colony’s police force. Then came 1985, when things took a different course. He began serving a different institution - he opened Jojo Mess, which later proved to be a success.

Inspirited by the rewards of my father’s brainchild, I have been involved in the business since; enabling me to explore my potentials and ripen my experience with hands-on management.

The immediate success of Jojo Mess gave my family a platform to launch several chains some years later. My frequent travels across the globe have been inspired by the vibrant cultures from people to places, which have touched my heart through the food on my plate.

In 1996, JoJo opened in Central. In 2003, Jashan, which is a celebration of Indian cuisine, opened for business in a prime location in Central. This success of Jashan resulted in the opening of over a dozen new ventures between 2006 and the present. Bacco, which opened in 2006, is a contemporary restaurant & bar in Sai Kung. And then we have Subway - a chain of sandwich makers in Soho, Star Ferry and Central the following year. Recognized as “the best Indian restaurant in Hong Kong”, Jashan went under a major facelift in December 2011, reviving an even more innovative menu and a dynamic team.

And so the celebration of this success continues, with the opening of Fresco, in 2013, - "Deliciously Fresh"- a new chain of sandwich, salad, pizza and coffee in Bank of America. Uppal Hospitality Group has become one of the most prosperous groups in Hong Kong and we share this honour with our patrons, who have become the heart of this ever-wonderful and exciting journey.

We are also proud of our association with Cathay Pacific Airline for providing a five-star service and the quality food catering of UHG to its valuable passengers.
