Autumn Singh, vice president of marketing and operations (and Amar's wife), notes that the decision to close and relocate was based on a kitchen layout that didn't work for the new franchise model. The company's website also notes that "we were constantly battling parking issues."
A new space has not been announced, but Autumn states that "the location where we relocate will better fit our business model and also deliver the true Taja experience in a hip modern restaurant with an ethnic touch."
While the original Bombay Bowl sported bold colors in its design scheme, the two Colorado Taja spots (the other, at 180 South Union Boulevard, closed earlier this year) went with a modern, spartan model in white with lime-green and blond-wood accents. The Texas franchise, with darker woods and a more sophisticated ambience, will be the model for all future locations.
