With the objective of providing its users with the option of ordering ‘ready to eat’ meals for lunch to their doorsteps, auto-rickshaw aggregator Jugnoo launched ‘Meals’, a delivery service that is part of its recently launched Fatafat app.
The user will get a handpicked menu to choose from that will change every day, which will include premium sandwiches, meal combos and exclusive desserts, among others without any minimum order price.
The orders will be delivered by Jugnoo auto-rickshaws. The new launch offers meal delivery service throughout the tricity of Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali.
This launch comes around two months after Jugnoo announced its entry into the hyperlocal grocery delivery vertical through Fatafat.
Orders will be taken between 12 midnight to 12 noon. People can choose between two delivery slots, the first one being 12:30 pm-1:30 pm and second between 1:30 pm-2:30 pm. The company is also planning to launch meals for evening snacks and dinner as well, within a week’s time.
Nitish Singh, CFO Jugnoo who is heading Fatafat and Meals verticals commented, said, “The idea is an optimum utilisation of the available resources. We have a large network of auto-rickshaws and having them empanelled under Jugnoo, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure their profitability.”
“With every new service that we have launched till date, we have ensured that our drivers have a lucrative role to play in it. We are definitely expanding, but with each expansion, we are creating new avenues for our drivers to earn extra” added Singh.
Founded in 2014 by Samar Singla and Chinmay Aggarwal, Jugnoo is currently present in 29 cities across India and it has a user base of over 120 million people. It has so far focused on four segments—auto booking services, taxi aggregation, online ordering and home delivery of meals and groceries.
