Indian food delivery firm Zomato is looking to expand its Intercity Legends service to other top-tier cities in the country over the next three months.
As part of this initiative, Zomato partnered with commercial airlines and logistics partners, Firstpost reported.
The online food delivery firm did not disclose the locations where this service will be rolled out but plans to add more restaurants to its platform and further expand its service.
Delivering food from various parts of India to the customer within 24 hours, the Intercity Legends service was piloted in New Delhi in August. It is available in Delhi and Bengaluru City, Karnataka.
Customers living in these areas can place their orders by selecting from 120 restaurants in ten cities across the country.
The cost of the food item also includes packaging and logistics charges.
Intercity orders are said to be 2.5 times more expensive than regular food delivery orders.
Zomato Intercity Legends head Siddharth Jhawar was quoted by various media sources as saying: “We have a lot of clarity. Over the next three months, we want to be in all top cities.”
With this sale, Sequoia Capital now has a 4.4% holding in the online food delivery company.
