From Birthday Party Inspiration to Multi-Crore Business: The Journey of Special You

In the world of entrepreneurship, inspiration can strike in the most unexpected places. For Sunny Singh and Cherry Saxena, it was a birthday party that sparked the idea for their now multi-crore business venture, ‘Special You.’ Their journey from colleagues to business partners is nothing short of a modern-day fairy tale, characterized by determination, innovation, and unwavering teamwork.

The Birth of ‘Special You’:
Sunny and Cherry, both 26 at the time, were working together at a reinsurance company when the seed of their business idea was planted. On Cherry’s birthday in January 2021, Sunny organized a surprise party for her at her residence. However, the search for party supplies proved to be a tedious task, as they struggled to find all the necessary items under one roof. This experience served as the catalyst for their entrepreneurial venture, as they envisioned creating a one-stop platform for party essentials.

From Humble Beginnings to Rapid Growth:
With an initial investment of Rs 27,000 and a vision to fill the gap in the market, Sunny and Cherry launched ‘Special You’ from Cherry’s home in January 2021. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 lockdown, they forged ahead with their plans, leveraging the growing online market in India. By April 2021, they had kickstarted operations, focusing on selling theme-based kits for different events and occasions exclusively on e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Flipkart.

Overcoming Challenges and Achieving Success:
Despite facing initial hurdles, such as competitors copying their product designs and assembling a strong team, Sunny and Cherry remained resilient. They navigated these challenges by issuing legal notices to copycats and strategically building a team of 30 employees. Through organic growth and targeted advertising on social media and e-commerce platforms, they quickly scaled their business, achieving a remarkable turnover of Rs 11 crore within just three years of inception.

Looking Ahead:
As Special You continues to thrive and evolve, Sunny and Cherry remain committed to their mission of providing customers with high-quality party decoration and home décor items. Their journey serves as a testament to the power of perseverance, innovation, and collaboration in turning a simple idea into a successful enterprise. With a bright future ahead, Special You is poised to redefine the party essentials market and make every celebration truly special for its customers.
