This shop was started by Ganesh Chandra Mullick. He came to Calcutta from Konnagar took up a job in a sweetshop in North Calcutta as a karigar (worker).But being an entrepreneurial guy decided to startup in the then sparsely populated Bhawanipur. . His decision to start a shop in Bhawanipore was a smart one as North Calcutta was overcrowded with sweet shops. The shop became established quickly and found many patrons including Sir Ashutosh Mukherjee. The legacy of Ganesh Chandra Mullick was carried forward by his brother Balaram Mullick and his son Radharaman Mullick.
With the passage of time the Balaram’s has become a throbbing venture of five generations.
