Deepinder Goyal, co-founder, and CEO of Zomato, revealed that the firm delivered roughly 15 tonnes of biryani that evening.

For businesses that deliver food and conduct rapid commerce, December 31 shattered multiple records. Zomato served more orders on New Year’s Eve than it did during the first three years of the company’s existence, according to co-founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal.

He stated, “Fun fact: orders delivered today >> sum of all orders delivered in the first 3 years of our meal delivery service,” on the social networking site Twitter.

The same day, Goyal tweeted that he would be taking a quick vacation from his work obligations to make some deliveries on his own. Going to deliver a few orders on my own at the moment, he wrote. Goyal tweeted in the late afternoon, “Should be back in an hour or two. Additionally, he changed the bio on his Twitter account to read “delivery boy @zomato and @letsblinkit.” Goyal shared a snapshot of himself holding a few food cartons while sporting the distinctive red Zomato suit.

Later, he noted in his journal that he had made four deliveries, one of which was to a senior couple who were spending New Year’s Eve with their grandchildren.

He mentioned how stressful the atmosphere was at work that evening. Albinder Dhindsa, a co-founder of Blinkit, a start-up that Zomato just bought, revealed that the company plans to deliver 56,437 packets of chips on New Year’s Eve in around nine minutes. He also revealed that Blinkit, formerly known as Grofers, received the largest order that evening from Bangalore for Rs 28,962.

Over 2 million orders were fulfilled by Zomato on December 31 of the prior year. This year, it has already surpassed its previous record for orders per minute. Goyal further stated that the delivery startup had made that day’s delivery of roughly 15 tonnes of biryani.

Goyal and Pankaj Chaddah launched Zomato in 2008, which is now 14 years old. In June of last year, the Gurugram-based company, which will be listed in 2021, bought Blinkit, a different rapid commerce company.
