KHRA Launches Food Delivery Platform ‘Rezoy’: Revolt Against Zomato, Swiggy?
Rezoy has been launched recently and is available on Google Play Store and App Store. The KHRA has announced that Rezoy will be available in parts of Kochi city. As per KHRA, the app will also be available across the Ernakulam district, and other districts will follow.
The major feature of this platform is the low cost of the food, as compared to its more renowned counterparts. As per Manoharan, Liaison Officer of Rezoy and Ernakulam District Secretary of KHRA, the other food delivery apps charged heavy commission from the restaurants, as much as 25 to 30%. This has become a non-profit factor for many of the restaurants, which makes them hike the prices of the dishes to have a profit margin.
He said that in this app, only a nominal commission is charged, which is around 8 to 10% and restaurant owners will be able to sell food at lower rates.
Officials have also said that the online price of the food will be the same as that charged in the restaurant.
Rezoy’s Services To Be Extended To Other Parts Of Kochi
As of now, Rezoy is available in MG Road to Kaloor stretch in Kochi city, and the 43 restaurants that have initiated the project are already a part of it.
By March, it is expected that the app will be active in some parts of Kalamassery and Kakkanad and involve around 400 restaurants. The KHRA officials have also stated that the service will begin in districts such as Malappuram, Kottayam, and Palakkad in the following months.
As per Manoharan, “Some aggregators are already on work to start their own kitchen to sell food. From the service of all these years, they have the precise data on people’s demands. So when this is rolled out, the restaurants are going to incur major loss. That is another reason why Rezoy was started.”
As per reports, even restaurants and hotels that are not a part of the KHRA will be able to avail of the app’s services. Rezoy charges a one-time fee from the restaurants and hotels, which will decide the commission rate.
