    Marriott International announced on Friday that “Marriott on Wheels”, their home delivery service will now be available in more cities through an agreement with Zomato.

    Zomato said this association expands Marriott’s home delivery services across India, while allowing outreach and exposure to thousands of customers using the platform. Marriott on Wheels has also branched out into providing corporate out-door catering services and bento box meals.

    The partnership will start with close to 30 hotels, in cities such as Bengaluru, Gurugram, Delhi, Pune, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Raipur, Chennai, Kochi and Surat. Zomato said every hotel has curated a compact Marriott on Wheels menu consisting of their signature dishes. This facility will extend to additional cities, as more hotels join the service provider.

    “Revolutionizing the way food delivery works and elevating the service elements, we have partnered with an established brand like Zomato. This will help us provide seamless end to end solutions that involve quality, speed with all the necessary protocols followed," said Neeraj Govil, senior vice president, South Asia, Marriott International.

    "We are happy to partner with Marriott International and feature Marriott on Wheels on the Zomato app. As consumers look for new ways to indulge and celebrate special occasions in the 'new normal', we believe this partnership will be important in rendering premium food experiences," added Mohit Sardana, COO-Food delivery, Zomato.

    I think the big hotels trying to sell deliver are going to fail miserably . People go to 5 star hotel restaurants for the food food but more importantly the ambiance and service . Why would you pay a high price for 5 star food on delivery ! I think any sensible promoter of the hotel should shut down kitchen and remove the staff for another 6 months ... as it seems it will be a year before people start tracing to hotels also that will be only urgent business travel ... and seeing our economy only few business are going to survive
