Given that the consumer demand for online gourmet food delivery services is on the rise due to COVID outbreak, many leading hotels are either tying up with food aggregators or are launching their digital platforms to leverage on their F&B offerings. Riding on the digital wave is South Asia’s largest hospitality company, Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) which has announced the launch of its digital food delivery platform - Qmin. The new delivery platform by IHCL will be rolled out in phases.

In the first phase of the launch, IHCL will commence with delivering dishes from a repertoire of culinary experiences curated by IHCL's restaurants, at the guest's doorstep. Guests can order from eight iconic and celebrated restaurants in Mumbai like Golden Dragon and Souk from Taj Mahal Palace; Thai Pavilion and Trattoria from President; and Ming Yang from Taj Lands’ End, to name a few. The launch will cover top ten markets in India including Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru etc. over a period of five weeks.

The Qmin mobile application will be launched on July 25th, followed by the gourmet Qmin Shop in August and the loyalty platform in September.

Talking about the announcement, Puneet Chhatwal, MD & CEO, Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) said, “This addition will augment the group’s F&B offerings leveraging a digital platform to address a growing consumer demand for online gourmet food delivery services. Qmin will scale up in the months ahead to include the gourmet Qmin Shop with delicatessen-based food choices. Taj has been home to our guests for more than a century. With the launch of Qmin, we bring Taj to their homes.”

Qmin will give guests a differentiated delivery experience with an enhanced focus on maintaining stringent protocols of safety and hygiene. This includes contact-less delivery and the mandatory use of protective gear for delivery executives in extremely sanitized vehicles. The packaging will be eco-friendly utilizing bio-degradable materials, and with customized insulation boxes to preserve the food whilst being delivered.

Qmin will expand its scope and bring Taj@Home to other cities in the near future. The gourmet Qmin Shop presenting epicurean specialities and authentic artisanal brands will open in August. Qmin will be integrated with IHCL's loyalty program in September, where guests can earn and burn points using Qmin services.
