About a year and a half ago, Pankaj & Achal started Mr. Hot Foods in Kota with a 5 member team. Apart from them, there was one chef, one delivery guy, & one person to do the marketing. On their first day, they got 17 orders. This was back in January, 2014.
Now they have grown into staff of 57 permanent members. 300000+ orders have been placed till date. 15000+ different people have tasted their food. Those are some remarkable numbers they have achieved. But more important is to know that people are loving their food. More than 80% customers continue their subscription after the end of 1st recharge, and an average regular customer has taken more than 130 meals.
Pankaj told us about some of the overwhelming compliments they got from customers. One was this –

So what’s so unique about them ! What gives them advantage over all those mess & tiffin centers in Kota city. Let us know more their customized meals model….
Generally when you eat at Mess or ask them to send tiffin to your place. You are very limited by the dishes you can have for Lunch or Dinner. Also, you keep on getting some dishes which you never eat, but they send it anyways. Neither you can cancel a meal if you have plans to eat at some other place. These are some of the most common drawbacks of these conventional mess & tiffin centers which students & working people who don’t cook at home, have to face everyday. This is where Mr. Hot comes in !
They have come up with a single compact solution for all these problems. You can customize your every day meals with a variety of options given to you.
