Food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy has announced strengthening of its presence in eight new cities namely Dehradun, Pondicherry, Mysore, Vijayawada, Nasik, Guwahati, Kanpur, and Ludhiana. Offering choicest food options in these cities, Swiggy will enable a wider number of existing and new consumers.
Vivek Sunder, COO of Swiggy said:
Over the years, Swiggy has played an instrumental role in making food ordering and delivery more accessible, reliable and convenient for consumers across the country. It has been very encouraging to see thousands of Swiggy app downloads even before our launch in new cities. Expanding to these eight new markets is very important to us. It means that even more people can have a delightful experience as the food from their favourite local and national restaurants get delivered to them at Swiggy’s lightning fast speed.
Earlier, Swiggy announced its launch in Vadodara and Surat, making a successful foray into Gujarat post debut in Ahmedabad last year.
We recently reported that Swiggy is looking to raise around $700 million from Tencent and a few other investors, for a new business, which is speculated to be in the hyperlocal delivery space.
