News, events and offers at Aagrah

The Yorkshire County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Aagrah Restaurant Group have become an official Club Partner for the 2018 season.

Following his arrival in Yorkshire last week, Indian Test batsman CheteshwarPujara dropped into Aagrah’s Leeds branch along with First XI Coach Andrew Gale and Club Captain Gary Ballance to help launch the new partnership.

Established 40 years ago, Aagrah is an independent family owned business with 12 branches across Yorkshire. It also has The Midpoint Suite, a conference and banqueting centre, seating 450 people. Their popular range of Tarka cooking sauces are available in Asda and Co-Op Food.

As part of the agreement, Aagrah will diversify the Club’s catering options for Second Test Match between England and Pakistan in June, and the visit of India in the Third Royal London One Day International at Emerald Headingley in July.

A bespoke Aagrah retail unit will also be available at Yorkshire Vikings’ Vitality Blast fixtures, selling their popular range of street food. Aagrah will be the headline sponsor of Yorkshire Vikings versus Northants Steelbacks on Friday 3rd August. As part of the sponsorship, a range of curries will be available to ticket buyers from Aagrah’s retail unit, with “Curry Night” hospitality packages available for the game.

As Emerald Headingley Stadium looks to diversify its range of catering options, Aagrah Restaurant Group believe that this partnership will be key for the group’s brand growth strategy by targeting a global audience.

Mohammed Aslam, Aagrah Managing Director said: “I am delighted to revive this partnership. We last did this with YCCC back in 2007 for the Bollywood Indian international Film Academy (IiFA). We are excited to be partnering with a firm whose vision shares our strategy for a youthful, innovative sport that promotes fair competition and healthy living.”

Mark Arthur, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive added: “On behalf of all at The Yorkshire County Cricket Club we would like to thank the Aagrah Restaurant Group for their continued support and coming on board as an official club partner for the next 12 months. This is a coming together of two big Yorkshire brands and considering Aagrah’s geographical spread it’s a perfect fit for us.

 

“We look forward to enjoying a fruitful relationship with one of the region’s most renowned restaurant groups and a business very proud of their Yorkshire roots.”

Aagrah Group of Restaurants were awarded the Best Asian Restaurant Chain for the North of England at the Asian Restaurant Awards 2018!  The glittering event was held at the Manchester Hilton in Deansgate.

Aagrah Sheffield (Leopold Sq) & Aagrah Leeds City were both shortlisted for the Best Asian Restaurant in Yorkshire & Humber.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who nominated us or voted for us!   Thank you for your continued support!

Unfortunately many communities in Pakistan still do not have access to clean safe water.  Aagrah Restaurants had the privilege of sponsoring the New Horizons charity which enabled the charity to install a water filter plant in a church in Pakistan. The New Horizons charity was founded by Yaqub Masih, a Pakistani Christian from Huddersfield. Three water filter plants were installed in Lahore which will provide clean water for 9,000 people every day.

Mr Haji Sabir, who is chairman of the Aagrah Group of Restaurants, told a 130-strong gathering of business people from across Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield: “We want to stand with New Horizons for all the good work they are doing in Pakistan.”

Aagrah’s Annual Business Dinner was held at The Centenary Business Pavilions at Leeds United Elland Road on Nov 1st. The main beneficiary was Macmillan Cancer Support. Well what a night! A total of £130,000 was raised on the evening. The Ayoub Sisters were the undisputed highlight of the night with their spellbinding performances!

The evening also incorporated the Hospitality Business Awards (North). The winners were:

New Startup of the Year – NOVELTEA, Newcastle upon Tyne

Hospitality Venue of the Year – Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, Bolton Abbey

Restaurant of the Year – Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, Bolton Abbey

Exporter of the Year – Suma Wholefoods, Halifax
