Hungryzone is now Just Eat India!!

March 5, 2011

Hi Foodies!!

It is rightly said: “The smallest act of kindness and support is worth more than the grandest intention” and we at Hungryzone are indebted to each and every customer of ours. We would like to thank you for the immense support and belief in us. More importantly we would like to commend the efforts of the customers who walked an extra mile to let us know how we can be better at what we do.

Today, we are no more than a startup working in an apartment like in 2006, but are part of a global brand – Just Eat which is currently operating in 11 countries including UK, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Sweden and Spain. With this move of joining the fleet of a global brand, we find no better an opportunity to give ourselves a fresh image and brand identity. Thus, as mentioned earlier, we will be known as Just Eat India from now on…

Just-Eat was founded in Denmark in 2000 and is based in London. It is currently active in eleven countries around the globe. Just-Eat delivers over 100,000 meals a day and has received more than 10m orders since the site launched. There are currently over 12,000 takeaway restaurants signed up to Just-Eat’s site which uses proprietary technology to offer a seamless on-line ordering service. Just-Eat is currently generating over £200m in revenue per year for the restaurant industry and was recently listed in the TechCrunch Europe Top 100 Index 2010.

The strategic partnership of Hungryzone and Just Eat has given us a new boost in terms of technology, brand and more importantly the experience in the domain possessed by it since inception. And our dearest Aloo Patel (the Chief Food Officer of Hungryzone) has new friends – Belly and Brain. Belly is a foodie and so is Brain. But what differentiates them is the grey matter. Brain is the brainy guy who orders for home deliveries the SMART WAY, uses JustEat.in himself!!

Belly 'n Brain

We have already received few comments suggesting you love the change and the pace at which we are growing to be there in all the major cities in India. We are humbled by the wonderful response that we have got from you and that has given us hope and strength to move forward. It is with great joy that we announced the re-branding of Hungryzone.com to JustEat.in recently and have experienced a massive increase in the enquiries from customers and the restaurants as well!!

Whats more, we are now operational in Mumbai as well! We’re hoping to reach out to all the food lovers across major cities of India within the next 18 months. We have just taken baby steps towards this by launching our services in Mumbai , taking baby steps towards making our presence felt in all the major cities of India!

Hungryzone is now Just Eat India

We would also like to inform you that, this blog will be discontinued from now on. We will have a single blog that can be accessed from the link on our homepage, making it simpler for you to stay in touch with us and be informed about some exciting developments, exclusive offers and more. Please join us there to share your experiences in form of comments, compliments and harsh truths that are sure to strengthen us further and help us remain the No.1 Online Food Ordering and Table Reservation Platform.

Your support and encouragement is of utmost importance to us and we would like to take this opportunity to assure you that we will continue to serve you to the best of our abilities. Your satisfaction is our priority and we are sure that we’ll never let you down.

We are here to serve the hungry soul and as always we are proud to be doing so for the last four years. We request you for your humble support for the days to come.

The times have changed and so have we. But what’s the worry, when we are her and are better than ever!!!
Bon appétit!!

Cheers,

Team – Hungryzone / JustEat.in
