With millions of burger and pizza fans across India, there is no surprise that McDonald's and Domino's are two of the most popular fast-food companies in the country. Recently however, both have been beaten by a big margin by popular snacks company Haldiram's.
With an annual turnover of Rs4,000 crore, Haldiram's is now the biggest snacks maker in India.
