MAN BEHIND THE SCENE

Mr. Akila Ganegoda, B.Sc. (GNMGT.TU) Hon USA

Akila Ganegoda’s culinary passion was first nurtured in his native Sri Lanka, where he learnt about the importance of fresh quality ingredients and where he developed the creative flair that has become a hallmark of his healthy fast foods. Coming from a family with long and vast business background, his primary and secondary education was at Royal College, Colombo. Thereafter he completed his Higher National Diploma (HND) in Management at the Institute of Technological Studies, Troy Campus, Colombo. He furthered his studies at the Troy University, Alabama, USA where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree (B.Sc.) with a Magna Cum Laude Honors specializing in General Management and Marketing.

Akila incorporated Star Dogs with the initial aim of introducing Healthy Convenient fast food products to the Sri Lankan and other Asian markets. The movement towards healthy convenient foods is on a rapid increase and due to this fact he believes there is a market within the Fast Food Industry the world over for standardized Hot Dogs projected towards people who are on a quest for healthy but also convenient & exciting sources of meals. This is why he initiated for the very first time in Asia an international standard Hot Dog range that can be instantly custom-made to the preference of a customer. Akila views Colombo as the perfect location to further develop his passion for serving the finest and freshest food.

His recipes are created according to Original Recipes developed by his mother which for decades have been successful locally. Every Star Dog is always fresh and bursting with flavor, because Akila has been committed to the outstanding quality of his products and the ultimate satisfaction of customers.
