Ankit Mehrotra, co-founder & CEO, Dineout, said, “In the last 4 months, we at Dineout have focused on increasing our offerings for both our diners and restaurant partners keeping their safety and growth at the centre of everything we do. We are urging our users to keep distance from people, but not with food!”
“With the introduction of contactless Takeaway services, our users can now enjoy food from their favourite restaurants in the safest way possible and also help our restaurant partners increase their offerings on the Dineout app to stay relevant in these challenging times. Our goal is to make Dineout the go-to app for all dining occasions."
Ankit Chona, founder of Havmor, said, “With Dineout as our partner, we are working to improve the end to end customer experience with Takeaways because a lot of diners still are not very comfortable dining out. We are laying more focus towards food that travels well, that is value for money, fresh and delicious.”

Through Takeaways on Dineout, we are finding means to engage with our guests providing them with ways to enjoy our food as the market evolves.”
Devesh Rawat, GM, Marriott Hotel Indore, said, "Takeaway has become a significant part of our F&B portfolio in times like this when dine-in services are completely shut. It is a new revenue stream that contributes 25 to 30% of our overall revenue and with Dineout partnership we expect it to go up further."

With a network of 50,000 restaurants in 20 cities, the venture also claims to provide collective savings of more than $100 million on restaurant bills annually.
