Grofers Will Deliver Your Order In 10 Minutes! Launches Operations In 10th City
The business of online grocery delivery is getting a lot of traction in recent times. With players like JioMart trying to make huge strides into the segment, existing players are also ramping up their operations. With everyone trying to woo customers to use their own platforms, the companies are using different strategies. One of the most effective strategies to attract customers is faster deliveries. Moving ahead of one day and same-day delivery, the world is inching forward to 10 min delivery. And Grofers, the online grocery delivery service, does not want to lag behind in this race.
Grofers opens up in 10th City
“Today, we launched our 10th city with the promise to deliver groceries within minutes to your doorstep. While our average delivery times are still hovering around the 15-minute mark, our eventual vision is to be below 10 minutes for every customer in India,” said, Albinder Dhindsa, co-founder and chief executive officer, in the company’s blog.
He further added, “As we sign up more partners and keep building out our network, we are confident we will be under 10 minutes for the majority of the customers within the next 45 days.”
Currently, Grofers is offering services in Delhi, Gurugram, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Ghaziabad, Noida, and Lucknow.
