Swiggy, an online food delivery unicorn, based out of Bengaluru, has flagged off its product delivery services ‘Swiggy GO‘ and ‘Swiggy Store‘ in Bengaluru.

The platform, known for its food delivery services, through its new ventures, will allow customers to order anything from any retail stores in the city, and also lets run other errands.

The step, taken by Swiggy, can be said to be part of its expansion plan and a foray into the delivery services of items other than eatables.

Recently, Dale Vaz, Head of Engineering and Data Science at Swiggy, said, “The first big tech challenge was moving from a food tech stack to a platform in the hyperlocal category. Today, even though we support food, we should able to do the same for other things like buying medicines, grocery, and pet food among others.”

Swiggy was founded by Sriharsha MajetyNandan Reddy, and Rahul Jaimini in 2014. The company claims to have over 2 Lakh delivery partners and more than 1 Lakh restaurant partners spread across 200+ Indian cities.

While Swiggy Stores will provide free delivery services of household items like groceries when ordered from stores within 6 km, Swiggy Go will move parcels from one place to another.

Apart from Bengaluru, Swiggy delivers from 3,500 stores in Gurugram, and works with 200 stores in categories like kiranas and supermarkets, fresh meat, baby stores, and health supplement stores among others in Gurugram.

Some of the significant players in the foodtech domain includes Zomato, Uber eatsFood Panda, and many more.
