Hi, what are you looking for?

Burrp users can now book a table, plans for food delivery

burrp

Burrp, the restaurant discovery platform, has tied up with Times Internet’s Dineout to allow users to reserve a table on its website and app.

Burrp said that its users could reserve tables on 1,300 restaurants commonly listed on both Burrp and Dineout. Dineout currently claims to have 2,500 restaurants listed across 8 cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.

It seems that the table reservation feature is not yet live, since we were unable to reserve a table on some popular restaurants listed on both Burrp and Dineout in Pune (see here and here).

Interestingly, Pradeep Prabhu, co-business head at Burrp, said that the company was planning to expand its services and become an all integrated platform for selecting, recommendations, table reservations and food delivery in the future. Burrp is currently present in 12 cities, with plans to expand to 35 over the next 2 years. It claims to have 65,000 restaurant partners and 500,000 app downloads. In March 2009, Infomedia18 acquired Burrp for Rs 4.25 crore.

Dineout history:

Dineout had raised angel funding worth Rs 60 lakh from the founders of Travel Boutique online in 2012. In April 2014, TimesCity acquired Dineout for an undisclosed amount. TimesCity had tied up with the company in 2013 when it introduced the table booking feature on its website. In June 2014, Times City introduced table reservations via Twitter. In July last year, the company was split into three separate services: Dineout, Whatshot and Filmipop.

inResto acquisition:

In September last year, Dineout acquired Bangalore-based restaurant management company inResto for an undisclosed amount. Dineout would offer an end-to-end restaurant management with inResto’s product which offered hotels a dashboard to manage table reservations, home delivery, takeaways, customer feedback, mobile payments, and loyalty programs.

Developments in online food delivery:
– Last month, Snapdeal added Zomato in its platform to order food from.
– In June, Zomato said that instead of trying to delete all biased reviews, it would delete some of the obviously biased ones and hide some of the others from most users. It would do this by rolling out an anti-bias algorithm to clean up biased reviews even retroactively. Zomato reported operational revenues of Rs 184.97 crore for the fiscal year 2015-16, Info Edge’s financials showed.
– In the same month, Carthero Technologies, the parent of logistics and supply chain company Roadrunnr acquired food delivery app TinyOwl for an undisclosed amount. Both the companies were expected to merge into one.
– In May, Rocket Internet owned foodpanda reported revenues of  $11.13 million in Q1 2016 (74% growth), as compared to $ 6.35 million in the same quarter last year.
– In the same month, TravelKhana let its users place orders on its mobile app without internet by forwarding order details as an SMS to the restaurant.
