Chennai: Zomoto has launched a new service called ‘Intercity Legends’. This service will provide inter-city food delivery service.
That means you can order Kolkata’s signature rasagulla and Hyderabad’s famous biryani from Chennai. Special dishes from popular restaurants in other cities of India can be ordered from other cities. But, if you order today, the food will be delivered within a maximum of one day. Deepinder Goyal, founder of Zomoto, said that mostly packaged foods will be delivered.
In this regard, he said on his website page, “The Intercity Legends project will help customers to order and taste unique dishes like Rasagulla from Kolkata, Biryani from Hyderabad, Mysore Pak from Bangalore, Kebab from Lucknow, Butter Chicken from Delhi”.
As of now, only residents of Gurgaon and South Delhi can avail this service. Zomoto is planning to expand this service across the country soon following the response. Kolkata, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Jaipur, Bangalore, Mathura, Chennai, Agra and Bhubaneswar are among the cities that residents of Gurgaon and South Delhi should order from.
Not all restaurants in every city are shown. However only some of the oldest and famous restaurants in the city are allowed for delivery.
How is food distributed?
Under this scheme, food is freshly prepared in restaurants and air-freighted to customers who order it. The food will be packed in reusable and tamper-proof boxes with state-of-the-art mobile refrigeration technology to keep the food safe during flight. Zomoto explains that once customers receive the food, they can heat it up in the microwave, air-fry or pan-fry. It has also announced that the service will be expanded across the country in the next few weeks.
