RailRestro, which is one of the leading food tech companies in India said that it will be investing the capital of USD 20-30 million for the establishment of a strong logistics infrastructure in the nation and also announced that it would rapidly broaden its geographic footprint with an emphasis on the east, according to the statement by an official on Sunday. The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), is a licensed caterer that is busy delivering restaurant food to the passengers at their preferred railway stations directly into the trains.
The infrastructure project that is being discussed principally focuses on the delivery fleet that is owned by the company, to provide its services to all of the railway stations across the country. In all the top performing stations, currently, more than 100 stations are covered and are being provided with the direct delivery service, as the process has begun. Manish Chandra, the founder and director of RailRestro said that the direct delivery fleet service will be available to almost all the operating stations by the end of this fiscal year.

The goal of Railrestro is to make fantastic food options, with variety and selection, readily available and cooked in hygienic kitchen settings.

We have also created promotional offers and a practical and user-friendly ordering system to further enhance your dining experience.
According to Chandra’s assertions, the company will invest a lot of money in the model and plans to spend $20–30 million at the majority of the stations that are already operational to establish its own fleet at a higher level of functionality. In the present day, the company is offering its food delivery services to about 450 railway stations as a conglomerate. According to the reports, the company is also planning to double the number of serviceable stations by the end of this year. The motivation behind the fleet of company-owned delivery vehicles has significantly decreased delivery failures and increased brand trust, said the official.
