“ShopKirana is working on sustainable value creation by simultaneously increasing efficiency in the supply chain and aggregating purchasing power of small businesses. I believe that the team has collectively exhaustive skill sets with a very firm focus on areas where startups seem to fail: execution and consistency in service quality,” says Pragnesh Podar, a lead investor from Lead Angels group.
“We have already tested services in 2 cities with 5000+ Kirana stores, delivered 200+ orders /day and achieved sales of over Rs. 10+ lakh/day. We will reach 10,000+ customers and will be delivering 1000+ orders/day soon,” says ShopKirana co-founder Deepak Dhanotiya.
