Imagine ordering food from Zomato, and expecting a delivery agent at your doorstep with the food. But they also give you a friendship band with your food. Oh! and wait, the delivery agent is none other than Zomato CEO, Deepinder Goyal himself. Well, it was a possibility for a few on Friendship Day as the CEO decided to take on the delivery agent role, himself. 

Zomato CEO Delivers “Food And Friendship” On Friendship Day

On August 6, Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal celebrated Friendship Day by personally delivering meals and friendship bracelets. Goyal shared on X (formerly Twitter) that he would be handing out these gifts to delivery executives, customers, and restaurant partners.

The food-tech giant’s founder expressed how he would be delivering food and friendship bands to his delivery and restaurant partners, and also their customers. He further went on to say how this was the “best Sunday ever!”  The CEO took to X to share pictures of himself holding a bunch of friendship bands that read “ best food friends forever.”

He also shared an image of himself sitting in a Royal Enfiled Bike, dawning the Zomato uniform. While of course, the move was a marketing bait, it didn’t stop netizens from finding the gesture heartwarming.
