Zomato is soon going to launch 10-minute food delivery in competition with the ’10 minute grocery delivery’ that is promised by every food/grocery delivery app nowadays. This was first reported by The Economic Times. According to the report, the food delivery platform is looking forward to following the cloud kitchen model to deliver food within 10-15 minutes.
The entire preparation and delivery of the food will be done through Zomato’s warehouses. It will launch its trial programme on April 2022 in Gurugram.
A senior executive from a cloud kitchen startup was quoted in the report that they were approached by Zomato to set up a cloud kitchen along with them. They added that Zomato wants cloud kitchens to work in a ‘co-working’ style.
Zomato claims that they have achieved a 10-minute delivery target in an experiment in Bengaluru. According to the report, the company is in talks with its B2B supplies partners called Hyperpure for accessing warehouses for its cloud kitchen model.
Zomato has invested $5 million in Mukunda Foods which is a robotic company. The company designs smart robots to prepare food in restaurants quickly. It will most likely be used by Zomato for quick preparation of food items. The robots will prepare food 20-25% faster, however it will take a minimum of 12-18 minutes which still poses a challenge, the report said.
