Swiggy’s closest rival, Zomato is already in the dining out business.

Dineout was founded by Ankit Mehrotra, Nikhil Bakshi, Sahil Jain, and Vivek Kapoor in 2012.

Times Internet in 2014 acquired the dining out platform for an estimated Rs 60 crore.

The last two years of the pandemic severely hit the dining out industry in the country and the Dineout business was also affected.

According to the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), in FY21, the Indian food services industry contracted severely leading to the permanent closure of over 25 percent of food business operators which resulted in job losses of nearly 24 lakh people.

“In FY21, the food services industry in India declined by 53 per cent and was estimated to be worth Rs 2,00,762 crore, compared to Rs 4,23,624 crore in FY2020,” said Kabir Suri, President, NRAI.

Swiggy last month raised $700 million led by Invesco, which, the company said, will be utilized to scale its overall business.

At a $10.7 billion valuation, Swiggy joined the list of Indian decacorns (valued at $10 billion and above).

Swiggy also raised $1.25 billion last year.
