It is a known fact that restaurants don’t sell food, they sell an experience and those who can crack the code between flavors and decor can be successful in building a loyal customer base.


Business Insider talked to two flourishing food businesses that work with Swiggy to understand how they’re leveraging this platform to its full potential.
Joseph Cherien from 48 East which is an online restaurant based out of Bengaluru said that Swiggy really helped to get his business to new heights, ‘’In the past four months since we opened Swiggy has helped us get 20% of our orders. Swiggy has helped us reach all parts of the city without much investment.’’

Another chef- Suresh from Leon’s Grill who started his own venture, found Swiggy to be helpful when he decided to go online with his already existing restaurant in Bengaluru. ‘’’We wanted to reach more people and expand, but instead of opening another restaurant, we went online to look for customers. Swiggy really helped us and so much so, that now 50% of our online orders come from the platform. We never thought we could reach so many people so easily.’’
