Zomato is testing a feature called ‘Intercity Legends’ that would allow customers to order dishes from across the country.
Craving for Hyderabadi Biryani or Bengali Roshogulla? Well, you may soon order it from Zomato!
The online food delivery platform is testing a feature called ‘Intercity Legends’ that would allow customers to order dishes from across the country. The testing is currently going on for select customers in Gurugram and parts of South Delhi, and Zomato plans to expand the service to other cities over the next few weeks.
“A jewel hides in every nook and corner of India. With over a 100 airports and a rich spread of the most iconic dishes that India has to offer, the sky is the limit to how big Intercity Legends can become,” Zomato’s founder and chief executive officer Deepinder Goyal said in a blog.
Currently, Zomato limits customers to order meals from restaurants located within the city. However, the company now hopes to deliver the legendary dishes from across the country the very next day by leveraging its vast network of restaurant and delivery partners, deep understanding of food technology, and insights into what its customers love.
“Food is freshly prepared by the restaurant and packed in reusable and tamper-proof containers to keep it safe during air transit. State-of-the-art mobile refrigeration technology preserves the food without the need to freeze it or add any kind of preservatives,” Goyal added.
Once received, customers can microwave, air-fry, or pan-fry the food.
The initiative is seeing a positive reaction from its customers.
