Food is happiness for so many, so let be food be our cure during this pandemic. With this deliberation, Fooza Foods Private Limited (Fooza) started its entrepreneurial journey in Kolkata in 2020.
Since then, Fooza has become a leading food delivery service with options to check reviews and ratings of restaurants and individual food suppliers; loyalty programs, and not to be forgotten, its distinct feature where customers connect with individual chefs on the app and order from them directly. In response to increased demand for its service and delicious offerings, Fooza has announced expansion plans to select second-tier cities in West Bengal i.e., Howrah, Asansol, Durgapur, and Burdwan at a Press Conference today. The announcement witnessed the presence of Mr. Kapil Lohia Co-Founder and CEO of Fooza Foods Private Limited, Ms. Reena Lath Co-Founder & Advisor of Fooza Foods Private Limited, and Mr. Kuruvind Lath Co-Founder and Director of Fooza Foods Private Limited.
In its first year, Fooza has onboarded more than 450 restaurants and has had peak days with more than 200 orders per day. The food delivery service has more than 10,000 customers and a pool of close to 50 delivery associates (riders). To celebrate this special day, Fooza is also honoured to announce its collaboration and growing relationship with Misti Udyog in the esteemed presence of Mr. Dhiman Das, Director, K. C. Das Pvt. Ltd.
Addressing the Media, Mr. Kapil Lohia Co-Founder and CEO of Fooza Foods Private Limited said, “We have achieved significant success and received ample positive responses from our customers and partners. We are now preparing to expand our collaborations in several parts of West Bengal. Fooza offers a world of food choices by bringing together multi-cuisine and speciality restaurants, experienced chefs, cloud kitchens, home kitchens all under one roof. Fooza’s dedicated delivery network allows customers to order from a much wider area, and our technology simplifies the food ordering process and incents our customers to use Fooza ahead of our competition. The advent of appealing, user-friendly apps and tech-enabled delivery networks, coupled with changing consumer expectations, has unlocked ready-to-eat food delivery as a major category. Lockdowns and physical-distancing requirements early on in the pandemic gave the category an enormous boost, with delivery becoming a lifeline for the hurting restaurant industry.”
