Swiggy Data: Chicken Biryani Is One Of The Most Popularly Ordered Foods Across India


There used to be a time when every family had a drawer stuffed full of takeout and home delivery menus – whenever no one felt like cooking, they would pick up the menus, flip through the endless pages and place a call. Today, the menus have been replaced by online food ordering apps and the calls have been replaced with a few taps.

One of the most popular online food ordering platforms in India is Swiggy; it has a presence in Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune and tie ups with a plethora of restaurants in each city. It has an app and website which shows customers restaurants near them that they can order from as well as the real time it’ll take to deliver the food. Customers can place their orders through the platform.

Swiggy has a large customer base in each city and caters to many customers each day. Using their data, they recently shared a few insights into their users’ eating patterns. Take a look at the food habits across India:
