3 Lakh Users Made Swiggy Debut By Ordering A Chicken Biryani

Swiggy also delivered over two lakh Pani puri orders post-lockdown

As contactless food became the norm in the pandemic-hit year, online delivery platform Swiggy on Tuesday said that some form of biryani was ordered more than once every second while home-cooked food was one of the most ferried items in 2020. The chicken biryani reaffirmed its place as India’s favorite dish. For every veg biryani, there were six chicken biryani orders.

Over 3 lakh new users made their Swiggy debut by ordering in a chicken biryani, according to the data from the fifth edition of Swingy’s annual ‘StatEATstics’ analysis. “While we delivered 5 times as many orders to ‘Home’ addresses compared to ‘Work’ addresses between January and March, that number rose to 9 times as many Home orders vs. Work orders in April and May,” the report mentioned.

Missing office cappuccinos and masala chais while working from home, lakhs of hardworking Swiggy users ordered varieties of tea and coffee. Swiggy also delivered over two lakh Pani puri orders post-lockdown. The company launched ‘Swiggy HealthHub’ in August, a curation of healthy food items.

People ate an average of 342 calories for dinner. Lunches ranged at under 350 calories, while breakfast, the day’s most important meal, saw people consume an average of 427 calories. Swiggy Instamart, its instant grocery and essentials delivery service, delivered over 75,000 kgs of onion.

“Our shortest delivery request came in from someone in Bengaluru and spanned 600 meters to collect an empty water can from their home and exchange it for a full one at the store”. “Meanwhile, our longest delivery spanned 39kms in Kolkata and involved the delivery of a SIM card,” Swiggy informed.
