An ex-Housing.com employee is now serving a gastronomical treat to India
Indians are experiencing entrepreneurial revolution in the country. With funds and support coming from all corners of the globe, and Tatas and Ambanis showing interest in startups, one can easily say that Indian entrepreneurs are having a gala time.
So when we met Prateek Agarwal, founder, BiteClub.in, who left his high-profile job with
Bite Club: It’s different?
Carrying certain traits of both a restaurant and a Tiffin service, Bite Club is not conventionally just another food service platform.

Good food no longer a luxury
A majority of times, people in metro cities end up spending exorbitant amounts for the food they consume, which is mostly unhealthy with no guarantee of freshness or novelty. Bite Club aims to address this problem by giving them a choice to the get delectable and appetizing food made with fresh produce. And for those, who miss home-cooked meal prepared by their moms as they struggle for a living in an unknown city, there are 80+ women partner chefs on the Bite Club platform. Most of these women are housewives who the company claims make more than Rs 80,000/month through them. We don’t know how valid their claim is, but even if women are earning half of this amount per month, then surely Prateek is also giving wings to other entrepreneurs in the country. And this, we believe, is not a bad beginning at all!
