Food discovery and delivery platform Zomato has invested an undisclosed amount in Hyderabad based home-cooked meal service platform Tinmen.


Without disclosing the amount of investment, Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal wrote in a blog post, “We are working on a bunch of exciting tech-led initiatives to build better accessibility to great and hygienic food for our users. In tandem, we are also exploring alliances with existing players, big and small, to help surface a larger variety of healthy meal options to our users.”

"In that spirit, we just made an investment into a startup called Tinmen – an efficient and modest little company which provides easy access to home cooked meals at affordable prices, for thousands of people in Hyderabad,” he added.

Started in August 2015 by Mukesh Manda and Chaitanya Degala, Tinmen offers home-cooked lunches to working professionals in Hyderabad. It provides office lunches with a scheduler built into its app available on both Android and iPhone.

Tinmen currently serves 10 major areas in Hyderabad—Madhapur, Hitec City, Kondapur, Gachibowli, Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills, Begumpet, Miyapur, Manikonda and Kukatpally—the blog post said.

The food-delivery platform is already delivering over 30,000 orders a month, it claims, and is looking to steadily multiply this number over the next 6 to 9 months. Zomato and Tinmen will work together initially in Hyderabad and then the rest of the country.
