If you ever ask any foreigner what’s special about India, after Taj Mahal, they’d PROBABLY say spicy Indian food. Food is essentially the most important aspect for survival. For us, it’s something which can be celebrated. Having punjabi naan in Tamil Nadu or Hyderabadi Biryani in Bhubaneswar, food unites us as Indians.
How did it start?
It didn’t start in a single day but took many days to decide that we want to do it. I was sitting in front of my computer, fixing the bugs at my previous employer when I receive a call from Amit. He said he needs to discuss something important with all of us and wants to know our thoughts. It was days of data gathering and analysing before we decided to start up. But once we did, we made sure we do it as best it can be done giving the resources we had.
Our Position: The fastest growing Food Delivery service brand in Bhubaneswar
We launched on 27th of January and since then we are constantly working to tie-up with best restaurants in the city. The city like Bhubaneswar really required an app based food delivery option and we selected Bhubaneswar after a thorough research that lasted for more than a month.
What makes Bhubaneswar best suited for us is the opportunity to bring restaurants closer to customers. The food delivery market of Bhubaneswar has not fully utilized the power of internet yet. We feel proud to help restaurants go digital and they also understand how important it is to stay updated.
Currently, we have successful tie-ups with around 60 restaurants, which is even greater than many companies working in the same segment. This growth rate is a signature of our perfect team, a perfect blend of strategy, marketing, ethics and hard work.
How Foodeterian is helping restaurants in Bhubaneswar: Foodeterian is helping restaurants to increase their reach. Everyone is aware that this is a digital age. Presence on internet is a must required thing if any business wants to stay in competition. Restaurants of Bhubaneswar are also aware of that and many of them have their own websites as well. But App based food delivery service is a requirement of Bhubaneswar. Imagine a smart city without a food delivery service that actually delivers food? Right?. That’s where Foodeterian is providing solution to restaurants as well as people who wants to order food using app. In short, we are bringing the digital wave of app based service to restaurants and people of Bhubaneswar.
What really inspired us to start: Most of us were already working with a good salary in some of the well-known companies but all away from homes. Food was a constant thought in our mind because our work schedule left us not enough time to wait for an order. It is a problem many people face. We gave a thought and found out that a whole community of around 1 million working class professionals with handsome salary lives away from home, with a constant dilemma of having a heartful of the good tasty meal.
Why Bhubaneswar? Bhubaneswar is the perfect place to launch a service-related startup for a bootstrapped startup.
