MEET BIMAL BHOJANI

Many people never have the fortune of discovering their passion; others never get the chance to explore it. Bimal Bhojani, Founder, CEO, and COO of Raining Berries, has been lucky enough to do both. Born in Kampala, Uganda, he immigrated to England with his family at several months old due to political tensions in the country. There, his parents Praphul (Ron) and Chandrika worked hard to build a solid foundation for the future. When the rest of their extended family became refugees at the hands of Idi Amin's Ugandan regime, Bhojani's parents took in and supported them in England until they could get on their feet.

Bhojani's love for people, community, and coffee led him to Raining Berries. Since coming up with the idea, he has dedicated himself wholeheartedly to the project. He wants to revolutionize the industry by combining a conference room system and state-of-the-art facilities to maximize customer satisfaction while incorporating sustainable options and products. After years of working in the Sporting, Banking, and Childcare industries, this is Bhojani's passion project. He is combining his devotion to family, inclusion, and learning by bringing people together with the way he knows how: through sharing a cup of coffee. In his free time, Bhojani enjoys long-distance running, CrossFit, traveling, and following his beloved soccer team Liverpool FC. With Raining Berries, he hopes to give back to his native Uganda through the donation of 1% of profits to the creation of Raining Berries across the nation. Opening its first corporate store in Lutz, FL, in winter 2019 & St. Pete, FL late summer 2020, the company is projected to franchise over 500 stores by 2025.
