When talking about this milestone, Mukund Kulashekaran, business head of online ordering at Zomato said, “The fact that July had five weekends certainly helped our cause. Finally, at 8:23 pm on the 31st of July, we hit the million order mark for July and then we racked up another 20,000 orders before the night ended.”
While Swiggy is doing very well, Zomato is trailing closely behind primarily due to the ‘minimum order clause’ listed for most of the restaurants.
This year alone, Zomato has partnered with Helpchat for one stop food ordering and integrated Pepsi into their online ordering and they’ve also been added to the new Apple Maps platform. They’re reaching milestones while their revenue doubles and their losses continue to mount and they’ve also pulled out of various international markets.
