Bengaluru: After witnessing the overwhelming response that the company received in Mumbai, TinyOwl, one of India’s fastest growing food delivery apps, announces the launch of its ‘TinyOwl Homemade’ service in Bengaluru. TinyOwl Homemade had attracted over 500 orders a day across the three localities - Powai, Andheri and Bandra in Mumbai.
Speaking on the occasion, Harshvardhan Mandad, Co-Founder & CEO, TinyOwl, says, “We have seen immense growth in this segment—7x since February 2015. TinyOwl Homemade will be able to provide more options to our consumers and other stakeholders in the food ecosystem. We aim to take TinyOwl Homemade to other cities as well in the near future”.
“We also believe that today’s chef is tomorrow’s restaurant and there is huge dormant talent and opportunity lying with the housewives of today. TinyOwl Homemade is the right opportunity for empowering such talented homemakers,” added Harshavardhan.
Prior to launching the service in Bengaluru, the company had conducted a pilot project in the city last month with three cuisine options and a dessert. Within the first month of its launch, the service received extremely encouraging response from the users. Currently, ‘TinyOwl Homemade’ offers only lunch services in four areas in Bengaluru – BTM, Koramangla, HSR, and Indiranagar. There are around 30-40 dishes listed on the app each day; with 74 percent being vegetarian.
TinyOwl was founded in 2014 by five IIT-Bombay students – Harshvardhan Mandad, Shikhar Paliwal, Gaurav Choudhary, Saurabh Goyal and Tanuj Khandelwal. The company’s Android app enables the users to order food of their choice through their mobile phones. The app automatically detects the user’s location and provides a list of restaurants that are in the user’s vicinity. It also provides the users with the list of dishes available at the respective restaurants and claims to fulfill 3000-5000 orders every day, delivering from about 4500 restaurants. As of now, TinyOwl has its presence in Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai & Gurgaon and is planning to extend its operations to 50 new cities by the end of this year.
