Milkbasket expands operations to Bengaluru, to hire 2,500 employees in next two years
With offerings like no minimum order, one tap ordering, and guaranteed silent delivery by 7 am, every day, Milkbasket hopes to expand its customer base in Bengaluru.
After becoming the go-to delivery service for daily needs in the Delhi/NCR region, Milkbasket is all set to expand its footprints in Bengaluru. The hyperlocal milk and grocery delivery startup announced the news of the Bengaluru launch on Wednesday, detailing plans of adding some 2,500 more employees to their workforce within the next two years.
Shedding light on the plans until 2020, Co-founder and CEO Anant Goel said,
“After becoming synonymous to grocery delivery in NCR, we are proud to launch our second base in Bengaluru. Within the next two years, we hope to have the largest operations in the city, and will be creating employment for over 2,500 people in the process.”
Started in early 2015, Milkbasket fulfills the everyday grocery needs of a household by utilising a new-age technology platform. All this, while enabling a frictionless experience for the users with the help of features like one-click buying, no checkout and contactless delivery.
The Gurugram-based company already has a 1500-strong manpower in Delhi/NCR and Bengaluru. Further expansion plans would entail fresh hiring for the company, for both on-ground operations and the corporate office.
In Bengaluru, however, Milkbasket hopes to woo the customers with its unique offerings such as no minimum order, one-tap ordering, and guaranteed silent delivery by 7 am, every day. By that, it means no unnecessary phone calls or payment hassles at the time of delivery.
“One can keep adding items in the basket till midnight and it will get delivered next morning by 7 AM,” added Anant. “We are determined to become the favourite grocery partner for every household in the Silicon Valley of India, and are looking forward to serve the city.”
Founded by Anant, Ashish Goel, Anurag Jain and Yatish Talvadia, Milkbasket has raised close to $16 million from Mayfield Advisors, Beenext, Kalaari Capital, Unilever Ventures, Lenovo and Blume Ventures.
