LocaLegs integrates delivery from multiple restaurants, with an online payment option
When Pratik Kumar Agrawal says that food delivery in Chennai can take up to an hour or more, we don’t disagree. But when he adds that this is the slowest in the country, we can’t help but feel cheated. “Through LocaLegs, we want to bring this down to 40-45 minutes, which is the average delivery time of the other metros in the country,” says Agrawal, about the new delivery service he has launched in the city. Hailing from Chhattisgarh, he and his partner Vivek Poddar (both IITians), have come up with what they’re calling an end-to-end solution that includes placing your order from multiple restaurants (on their website or app) and making payments online. But that’s not all.
“Our ‘food pilots’ are tracked real time and we want to be the first in the country to provide customers with real time tracking of their delivery,” says Agrawal, who has signed up more than 200 restaurants across the city in just 15 days of operations. “We have 50 ‘food pilots’ on ground right now and are looking at signing 2,000 restaurants with 300 ‘food pilots’ over the next three months,” he shares their plans for Chennai. Post this, LocaLegs will look at establishing itself in other cities like Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Chandigarh.
