So, it turns out, that here in the Garden City of Bengaluru – we eat in! According to a report, Bengaluru makes up about 25 to 30% of the daily online delivery orders. RedSeer Management Consulting. who prepared the report, showed that Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune follow in that order with Chennai emerging as the sixth largest market for the food-tech industry, crossing the 10,000 deliveries a day mark for the first time.
The report also highlighted the fact that about 90% of the orders came from the top 6 urban cities. This point was reiterated by Euromonitor who said, “In India, home delivery is largely limited to India’s urban areas, and a large portion of the population still resides in rural regions, where there is little or no demand for home delivery. The demand for food delivery services is also limited to a very specific subset of the Indian population.”
Whatever the case may be, it seems as though we Bangaloreans value the easy accessibility of online delivery – must be our penchant for avoiding traffic jams!
