Review of How HungerBox App Accomplished Digitization of Cafeterias?

July 18, 2019 by Reshmi Abhijith  

HungerBox is arguably India’s first app to digitalize cafeterias. It brings three sections of an organization together- the cafeteria vendors, the employees (customers) and the Company (the administration group). This B2B food tech start-up was founded by Sandipan Mitra and according to HungerBox app reviews, it was founded in order to make things easier for all these three sections of people.


People working in large companies would often know about the painstaking process of ordering food in their company cafeterias. HungerBox reviews that, the long queues, the mix ups that takes place and the confusions during payment, all make it a very lengthy procedure. Sandipan Mitra states that the problems of all three sections are different. The companies have no idea what exactly is going on in cafeterias. The employees find it tiring to wait for long durations to get their food and for the vendors, they literally have no control over the business. Various statistics suggest that around 18- 20% of the business income is not recorded at all. There were even instances where almost 50% of the sales were not recorded.


How it works?


HungerBox reviews show that using this app, resolves all these issues by digitalizing the entire process. According to HungerBox review, all the employees of a particular company would be given apps, which are accessible through mobiles or computers. They can then scan the number of providers, select the type of menu they want and order food by mentioning the time and place of pick up. HungerBox app reviewssuggest that, since the entire process is online, there wouldn’t be any rush or queue inside the cafeteria, making the process easy and simple.


Future Plans


India’s first digital cafeteria was launched by HungerBox along with it’s first customer, which was First Source. HungerBox app reviews show that their present clientele includes companies like GE Digital, Cognizant, Capgemini, Wipro, TCS, IBM, Qualcomm and HCL.  They presently manage around 200 cafeterias in 10 cities and deliver 2.40 lakh orders every day. Their aim is to increase it to 3.5 lakhs a day. HungerBox has now started tie up with restaurants outside the companies so that it would be able to serve employees who work late and enable them to order food to their office.
