If you are running a home baking business in India, you are mostly likely one of the several entrepreneurs facing the same problem - DELIVERY!
Home bakers in India, typically, get into making cakes, brownies, cupcakes, savouries, etc. for their interest and passion in creating their works of art. While this is quite often an enjoyable experience for them, getting them delivered has been equally painful. This is because, they do not have the means and capacity to provide doorstep delivery of cakes to their customers. Most often, the home baker ends up making trips in traffic doing the deliveries of cakes themselves or asking their customers to pick up. While the former limits the home baker from scaling their baking business, the latter seems like a bitter pill for their customers to swallow. There are many people who still prefer to order a cake from a home baker, as they are usually customized for a special occasion and/or a theme. They're prepared to go through the inconvenience of picking up the cakes from home bakers personally swimming through the noisy ocean of pollution & traffic.
Clearly, the absence of a reliable delivery channel for cakes in India has been limiting the home baker’s growth. This has been causing frustration for them and their clientele. That’s about to end as Whizzy, a Hyderabad based startup has launched a delivery service for home bakers in Hyderabad.
Whizzy is in the business of providing logistics and transport services via its sophisticated technology platform.
In layman’s term, Whizzy can help customers pick up and drop things from one place to the other safely and conveniently while not costing an arm and a leg. Delivery charges are calculated based on the distance between the pickup and drop points and are further subsidized with coupon codes that the company releases periodically.
Whizzy’s emphasis on providing high quality in their delivery services and their endeavour towards ensuring safety and security of goods during transport is evident from the out-of-the-box thinking that they have demonstrated in designing the delivery bags. The founders say that a lot of valuable feedback from their customers and Whizzers went into designing the bags resulting in their latest version that allows the goods to be placed and removed easily without getting damaged and by securing them inside to minimize movement during transport. Delivery isn’t limited to finished goods alone; home bakers in Hyderabad can further save their time and reduce the hassle by having their baking supplies picked up as well from their merchants.
Whizzy is a gift to the home bakers in Hyderabad and their message to the home baking industry cannot be anymore simple…“You bake, we deliver”!
