Abohar, in Punjab, became the first city to cross 1,000 orders on the day of launch and has been clocking 2,000 orders a day since then. This was one of the findings of Zomato’s annual report for FY19, which highlighted the food delivery app’s performance over the last year and its plans for the future.

The other highlights of the report were:
    • A Zomato delivery rowed across the Brahmaputra River on a boat, in the city of Guwahati, to deliver Chicken Hakka Noodles. It took around 1.5 hours in total to make the delivery

    • Seventy per cent of Zomato’s regular users in Kolhapur had never tried food delivery in their life (even over a phone call), and Zomato was the first food delivery experience of their lives

    • Tuni, a town in Andhra Pradesh, is the smallest emerging city in food delivery with the highest number of cashless payment

    • An order worth a whopping ?1,84,760 was delivered in 415 boxes in Jaipur, and another massive food order was placed by a user in Lucknow worth ?16,800

    • Indore requests more midnight meals than Mumbai

    • Kota is the largest emerging city in food delivery

    • Bhagalpur and Gaya have more delivery partners delivering food on cycles than on bikes

    • Vijayawada is most likely to get breakfast than any other city

One of the key drivers of this future is its food delivery business which grew from 15 cities to 213 cities in India within a year. Now that Tier-II, III and even Tier-V cities are ordering food online, what’s interesting to notice are the unique food ordering habits across India.

Over 100 Zomato delivery partners waiting to pick up their assignments at the Bawarchi restaurant in Hyderabad. Bawarchi typically receives about 2,000 orders a day from Zomato.

Zomato currently lists over one lakh restaurants in India and has a last-mile delivery fleet of 1,80,000 partners. Globally, the food tech giant is present in over 10,000 cities, with over 1.4 million active restaurants on the platform.
