Zomato, one of India’s most popular meal delivery apps, has recently relaunched its Gold subscription in an effort to increase profitability. The company’s decision to leave 225 small towns comes as it prepares to employ for approximately 800 positions.
In its financial earnings report, the firm stated that Zomato’s food delivery service left ‘225 smaller cities in January, which contributed 0.3% of its gross order value in the December quarter’.
“Performance of these locations was not particularly encouraging in the past several quarters, and we did not feel the payback period on our investments in these areas was appropriate,” the company stated of the move.
However, it is unclear which cities have been affected by this change. The corporation also discussed the steps it is taking to increase profitability. In India, it recently revived the Gold subscription. Concerning the same, it stated, “In late January, we launched Zomato Gold, a brand-new subscription club… We anticipate that this initiative will increase loyalty and frequency of ordering in the future.” The business also stated that over 9 lakh people had signed up for the programme.
