Swiggy launches Swiggy Go, expands Swiggy Stores to Hyderabad, Bengaluru
Food technology unicorn Swiggy has rolled out Swiggy Go, an instant pick up and drop service, in Bengaluru.
The food delivery firm, run by Bengaluru-based Bundl Technologies, said Swiggy Go can be used to pick up and drop off laundry, get forgotten keys, send lunch boxes from home to office or even deliver documents or parcels to clients.
“After enabling this with food delivery for five years and stores across the city with Swiggy Stores, Go will open the Swiggy delivery superpower to all consumers in the city,” Sriharsha Majety, CEO, Swiggy, said in a statement.
The service is currently available only in Bengaluru, the statement added.
Swiggy has also opened Swiggy Stores in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
The startup has partnered with 300 merchant-partners like Godrej Nature's Basket, Nilgiri's, Organic World, Heads Up For Tails and Nandu’s Chicken in Bengaluru and close to 200 merchant-partners like Ratnadeep, Ghanshyam, Sneha Chicken, Yellow and Greens and 24 Organic Mantra in Hyderabad, the statement said.
“By 2020, we will expand Swiggy Go to over 300 cities and Swiggy Stores to all the major metros, ushering in a new era of convenience for consumers across India,” Majety said.
Swiggy, founded in 2014, is an on-demand delivery platform. It connects consumers to over 130,000 restaurants across more than 325 cities.
Last month, it had tied up with scooter-sharing platform Bounce for a bike-taxi pilot project in Indore and Ahmedabad, The Economic Times reported.
