Swiggy has gone live with its food delivery service in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman & Nicobar Islands. After serving millions of customers in hundreds of cities in India, Swiggy has partnered with leading restaurants and hired Delivery Executives for its maiden operations in Port Blair. With this, Swiggy is creating both direct and indirect local employment in the Union Territory while bringing great choice and convenience to consumers.
For locals and tourists in Port Blair, Swiggy is bringing the finest cuisine and delicacies to their doorstep, from over 50 restaurants in the city. These include Indian, Continental, Chinese, Italian, Thai, and a variety of biryanis and desserts among others.
Commenting on this launch, Sidharth Bhakoo, VP, Food Marketplace, Swiggy, said, “Swiggy has always been on a mission to provide its users with unparalleled convenience. With our entry into the Port Blair market, we are delivering this commitment to a new set of customers, who are eager to enjoy our world-class delivery services.
