Sri Krishna Sweets (Tamil: ஸ்ரீ கிருஷ்ணா ஸ்வீட்ஸ்) is a popular Indian sweet manufacturer and eatery based in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. It is most noted for its Mysorepak.


Sri Krishna Sweets was established as a restaurant in 1948

in Coimbatore. Its founder was N. K. Mahadeva Iyer who wanted to produce "pure ghee sweets" at home and market them. In 1972, he opened a separate sweet shop at R. S. Puram to retail sweets. As the sweet shop did good business, other branches were opened in different parts of Coimbatore in 1991. In 1996, the company expanded its operations to Chennai and other cities in South India. As of 2010, it has 60 retail outlets across India and three in the United Arab Emirates. It also started serving snacks in its sweet shop and has started providing lunch to customers from 2006. The company is currently managed by Mahadeva Iyer's sons - M. Murali and M. Krishnan.[2][3][4][5]
