Their father died while the brothers were still young and left their mother to care for them. The brothers had to find a way to survive without their father, who was the primary provider for their family. The brothers would go door to door selling milk, picking up eight bottles and taking the train.
In those early years, when the other children were busy playing, Sunil and Harshad had many other odd jobs. The brothers eventually moved to the U.S. along with their mother, in search for a better lifestyle.

There, following in the footsteps of their mother’s work ethic, they also worked very hard mentioning how working 16 hours a day was common. They had multiple jobs to support themselves. Sunil enrolled in trade school, and after that he began working as a mechanic. He earned $100,000 per annum. This was possible because he had a base salary of $60,000 and made the rest by working overtime and on weekends.
Harshad, on the other hand, wanted to be a doctor but was working as a waiter. He would tell the owner every time he wanted to quit to continue his education and he would be promoted. Over time they were promoted to Supervisor of the entire restaurant. Both started saving money to buy their first restaurant franchises. Sunil purchased a Jack in the Box Los Angeles unit. He purchased many franchises over the years. Later, he would buy Burger King franchises and sell them to make money.
Sunil oversees the different companies which have today turned into 70 Applebee’s, 47 Sonic Drive in’s, and Roy’s restaurants through his company called SSCP Management.
