Zomato is a restaurant search and discovery service founded in 2008. Deepinder Goyal and Pankaj Chaddah are the proud founders of this food search engine.
Graduated from IIT Delhi, the duo once observed common people waiting for long hours to get served in the restaurants. It was then Deepinder and Pankaj developed a website which provides reviews and information about the restaurants including the images of the menus of those restaurants which have their own website. This eventually helped their users from wasting time for deciding on the menu.
Founders Deepinder Goyal and Pankaj Chaddah are leaving no stones unturned and this is the reason behind the company’s startling growth. They believe that hiring the right people is a pre-requisite for the success of a company and this is also the biggest challenge faced by them while creating Zomato. Despite, they have done this job in the best possible way and they now have a team with each member being significant in bricking this tower.
When thinking of ordering food the first question that comes to our mind is ‘what to eat’, and after a brainstorming session, once we decide that, the next BIG question is ‘where to eat’. These questions take up a substantial amount of our time, making us hungrier at the end of it all. However, from the time Zomato paid us a visit, the aforesaid questions hardly bother us any longer. This portal has made finding the best eateries in our locality an easy and fairly interesting affair. Change is constant and that is what defines their vision. Their business is ever evolving and as he said in his Reddit profile, “The vision changes every day. Part of our culture is “1% done” – this means that wherever we are, there is always so much more to do.”
