QSR (Quick Service Restaurants) are now giving way to the fast growing IFR (Internet First Restaurants). To name a few Holachef, Spoonjoy, Frsh, Yumist, Eatlo, Hello Curry,& FreshMenu forms the early movers in the space that work on a delivery-based model. These food delivery options are a hot favorite for the working class as they give a change of taste in a very accessible manner. One just needs to place an on-line order and it gets delivered within minutes at the office space itself.
These food chains are experimenting with various models at the back end, to bring a range of innovations to production, distribution and supply chain. Some of the restaurants such as SpoonJoy have a network of 10 kitchens from where they supply lunch, dinner, snacks and fruits; they also have a vast variety of menu with 20 dishes per day while others like Yumist have a model of one central kitchen and a limited number of dishes (i.e 2 per day) for lunch only menu.
This is the result of ecommerce boom, that helped in expansion of standalone last-mile delivery logistics companies. According to industry experts this emergence of Internet-first restaurants and last-mile options for home delivery will bring a revival in the food service industry.
So yes, there are a whole lot of options to pick up from and my mouth is already watering. Do check out these new form of eating joints and let us know your favorite picks!
