Swiggy Vs Zomato: The food delivery war in India

Bengaluru-based Swiggy currently has over 250,000 delivery partners across 520 cities. The food delivery service is one of the two major players in India in the segment. Competing with Swiggy in the battle is Zomato. Also going upwards, Zomato recently acquired another food delivery platform Uber-Eats. The company will use the newly added resources to further expand its user base in the country.

In contrast to Swiggy’s numbers, Gurgaon-based Zomato currently operates in over 200 cities and has over 100,000 restaurant listings in India. In the month of March 2019, it registered over 30 million transactions.
