Zomato has been experimenting with various new services to diversify its offerings. Last month, the company tested last-mile delivery services specifically for office workers in corporate parks. This initiative aims to cater to the unique needs of corporate clients, ensuring timely food delivery during work hours.

In another recent development, Zomato introduced an all-electric “large order fleet.” This fleet is designed to handle large orders for groups of up to 50 people, promoting sustainability while catering to bigger gatherings and events.
