Just a click away

The City is known for the variety of food it offers and also the booming number of foodies it has. Thanks to advanced technology, even food nowadays is just a click of a button away.

Many people here order food online from the comfort of their home and a large number of food-based start-ups and websites have come up to cater to their demands. These come as a blessing as they save you the trouble of cooking as well as give you a range of options to choose from.

Just like the ‘dabbawalas’ of Mumbai, there are many families, small partnership firms and youngsters busy delivering ‘dabbas’ to various places of the City.
These businesses are flourishing thanks to the booming MNC culture in the City and the little time that the professionals have because of their  busy work schedules.

‘Chulha’, a seven-year-old tiffin delivery service, delivers 300 to 400 boxes everyday to corporates and also takes individual orders.

Says Farhana, one of the owners, “The main challenge is the traffic in every corner of the City due to which we get late sometimes. Due to this, we also have to limit our services to five or six kms and this affects our business further.”

Thanks to the cosmopolitan culture of the City, people can also order a variety of cuisines from different parts of the country and world in the comfort of their home.

Online delivery services are also a safe option, especially for the many college girls and working women living in the City as they don’t have to step out for food late in the night.

Anjana, who works in an event management firm, says, “I find online shopping and home delivery system very helpful. I have been living in Bengaluru for three years now and the home delivery system here is way more efficient and timely when compared to the other places I have lived in.” She adds, “This system is a blessing for working people like me who hardly have time on working days.”

Even Arathy Ajay, a young professional who resides in CV Raman Nagar, has benefitted greatly out of the system. “Since one has the option of online payment on these websites, there is no need to search for change. Even during the weekends when I am going out, I log onto these sites and book the table at the restaurant I plan to go to in advance,” she sums up.
