Looks like even Thattukadas have joined the online food delivery services. And the evenings are already seeing a surge in their orders. Online food delivery services had hit the roof during the pandemic and surprisingly the demand continued even after the lockdown was lifted. The safety and social distancing factors are what seems to be keeping them invested in online food ordering.
Bakeries to Thattukada
From Bakeries, High-end restaurants, budget eateries to Thattukada, they are all ready to take online delivery services now. Usually, they are open from breakfast to late nights and offer sandwiches, burgers, alfams and shawarmas to Kuzhi mandhi and Biryanis. If the lockdown saw 40 to 50 packages being sold daily from restaurants, now the demand has multiplied. But lately more people are venturing to dine out in the evenings or for dinners.
The association of hotel owners are keen on making use of the online food delivery services and that's the intention behind the creation of the Rasoi app. “Through the Rasoi app created by hotel and restaurant associations, food will be distributed from March,” says Association District Secretary N Pratheesh.
You can avail discounts from Restaurants who have the Association registration and license on the Rasoi app. Unlike the certified online food delivery services, the Rasoi app will not be charging extra for their delivery services. The app which recently opened its services in Ernakulam has been received well.
“Compared to earlier, online deliveries have increased. We get an average of 25 orders per day apart from direct home deliveries. Usually, the demand is high on weekends. Most people prefer takeaways on Saturdays and Sundays. Restaurant owners' home delivery system is more profitable unlike food delivery apps which charge an additional fee for their services,” says Sebana Nazir, Managing Partner, Al Mouda, Kottayam.
