In addition it operates stores of certain other brands including Vaango, Food Street, Masala Twist, Amreli and Ckrussh Juice Bar. The company derives 5.28% of revenue from these other operations, as an FY21.
The company believes the QSR channel is expected to witness a significant rebound in the future due to rapid urbanisation and proliferation of internet and scarcity of time for meals owing to busier lifestyles played key roles in the growth of popularity of western fast food in India.
Quick-service restaurant is an eating establishment primarily focused on the provisions of meals or soft drinks, with limited or no table services.
In 2020 particularly, home deliveries drove revenues of these players, amid the pandemic. However, much lower footfalls in their venues made them close several of their outlets. Domino’s Pizza shut 100 of its outlets in the third quarter of 2020, showed the company’s DRHP filing.
The company plans to repay its borrowings with ₹357 crore with the net proceeds of the IPO.
Moreover, the pandemic has accelerated the growth of online food ordering through food delivery apps, as consumers turned to online platforms to avoid spreading or being infected by the coronavirus in public places.
Besides the pandemic, increasing internet and mobile penetration in India and the advent of food delivery apps are also key factors leading consumers away from traditional dine-in experiences and towards convenience-driven options, as per the DRHP.
