Hyperlocal startup, Jugnoo has launched its restaurant aggregator vertical Menus in 21 cities. Within 4 months of its launch, the app-based service that enables customers to order food from restaurants in the city has been expanded into 21 cities across India and has enrolled over 5000 merchants including prominent brands like Pizza Hut, KFC, Subway, Burger King and Domino’s.
Commenting on the development, Samar Singla, Founder and CEO of Jugnoo said, “We already have a good customer base in Tier II and Tier III cities due to our Rides vertical. As we are adding more offerings to our platform, it is enabling us to grow really fast. With Menus, we are witnessing a steady week-on-week growth of 20% and plan to add around 1000 new merchants every week. Currently servicing over 2000 orders per day, the venture is a big boon for local merchants who are high on quality but don’t get enough visibility. Menus is helping them scale their business and fulfil their delivery requirements.”
Founded in November 2014, Jugnoo offers a range of services like rides, ready to eat meals, restaurant food delivery, grocery and B2B delivery. Headquartered in Chandigarh, the company is currently rendering its services in 40 cities of India and trending at 50,000 daily transactions. It has over 15,000 autos empanelled under the brand at present.
With this expansion, Jugnoo claims that it has become the only platform to offer this kind of service in Tier II and Tier III cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Vadodara, Indore and Bhopal. Further, as Jugnoo is utilising the logistics network of its B2B vertical for its restaurant food delivery segment, it is able to facilitate home delivery option for merchants who don’t have transportation means to do that. For customers, the service is not only convenient but also more economical as they can avail huge discounts while placing orders via Jugnoo app.
“We keep coming up with a lot of festival campaigns that enable people living in metros to send gifts to their friends and relatives in smaller cities. Unlike other restaurant aggregators, who hire third-party delivery partners, we ensure quick and convenient delivery through our own B2B logistics service.” Samar added.
Jugnoo’s Menus service is currently available in Chandigarh, Indore, Jaipur, Gurgaon, Noida, Bhopal, Vadodara, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Kota, Surat, Ahmedabad, Faridabad, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Lucknow, Nashik, Ludhiana, Pune, Madurai and Nagpur. The platform targets to enrol a whopping 6,000 merchants and expand its reach to 60-80 cities by end of this year.
