Yumist, a food delivery startup operational in Gurgaon since Oct 2014, has raised it’s first round of funding from Orios Venture Partners.
Yumist was founded by Alok Jain (a tech entrepreneur & ex-CMO at Zomato) and Abhimanyu Maheshwari (a seasoned F&B entrepreneur) to provide easy access to tasty and homely daily-meals. A unique combination of food, logistics and tech, Yumist allows it’s customers to place orders in a few seconds through it’s Android app and the meal is delivered hot in under 30 minutes.
“The average ordering time on our app is 25 seconds and the average delivery time is 19 minutes so far. We are trying to redefine how and what people eat at offices with quality and convenience being at the top of our agenda”, said Alok Jain, Founder & CEO at Yumist.
What differentiates Yumist from the other food delivery startups that have sprung up recently is the kind of meals they offer and a rather sophisticated delivery infrastructure powered by technology. With options like Rajma Chawal, Chicken Chawal, Aloo Parathe, etc Yumist is catering to the low priced daily meals market, and using technology to solve the challenges faced by customers in this market.
The investment will be used by Yumist to grow the team, expand geographically and build it’s production, technology and delivery infrastructure.
Earlier, Bangalore based SpoonJoy had raised angel funding from Flipkart founders.
