This process is done by connecting restaurants and customers and delivery agents through an online platform. Apart from food delivery services, Zomato runs a subscription program for its customers and it supplies rich food ingredients and products to restaurant partners. Currently, Zomato serves 24 countries and 10000+ cities across the world.
