Zomato receives highest ever orders per minute on New Year’s Eve

Food delivery platform Zomato’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Deepinder Goyal said Zomato recorded its highest ever order velocity on New Year’s Eve.

Our order velocity right now is the highest we have seen in our life so far (~2500 orders per minute (opm). Surpassed India vs Pakistan day wala opm. And it’s only 6pm! I hope our tech lives through this,” Goyal¬†tweeted at 6.14 pm on the New Year’s Eve.

Due to COVID-19 people chose to stay inside and celebrate the new year at home instead of dining out. At 8.22 pm, Goyal tweeted there were 4,100 orders on the platform.

With his witty tweets Goyal kept on updating about the orders. He also said that the average value of orders on the platform was seeing a spike.

The Zomato CEO recently said the company was expecting to clock its highest ever gross merchandise value (GMV) month in December 2020.
