E-commerce firms are fast gobbling up conventional platforms with their own menu to success. The food business is no exception. In Hyderabad, several online websites are rushing to supply food at your door steps on a click .

The city has seen the rise of many websites that offer food deliveries. The idea of having food delivered at your doorsteps is amazing.

Food sites like foodpanda, Eatz, Get Me Food, Swiggy, FAASOS are some favorable sites to order food. They put up a list of restaurants available near your location or producetheir own food. They might give you some discounts and you just have to select and order. “I use foodpanda a lot. I have placed order from Swiggy, they are like the blind escape when you don’t want to cook plus too lazy to go out,” says Ramya Vedicherla, who is preparing for her UPSC exams.

But sites like Kitchen’s 652763-soup-desktop-wallpaper-1920x1200Food and Hello Curry have taken the competition a notch higher. They deliver home cooked food at reasonable prices. Kitchen’s Food launched in June 2014 started as a food ordering website but later upgraded to serving a list of home cooked food items of different cuisines. They have enrolled a number of chefs, and the website is used as their meeting space.

“Return on investment is extremely high and there are many advantages of e- commerce,” says Rishi Raj Singh, the owner of Kitchen’s Food. E-commerce is a fast growing industry; it is time and cost effective.

For a beginner, it is the right place to develop a brand.
