I am an Entrepreneur and own a restaurant in Mumbai. The idea of the balancing cart stemmed from my own personal observation in my restaurant. In spite good inventory control there is always leftovers. And Like me there are many restaurant owners who face the same challenge. So I asked myself a question "How do we get a balance"?
To have a balancing cart. An app which lets you see the restaurants of your choice, the cuisine of your choice. The leftovers would be segregated into buckets of different cuisine and you would just need to pay a nominal delivery fee. This is mainly targeted to those who are in need or someone who is having a budget constraint.
Some of you might be wondering what if the food is stale, how will we come to know how old the food is , What if I get food poisoning etc
To find a balance to those questions I will have to tell you what a balancing cart is and how it works?
What is a Balancing Cart ?
It will be a mini refrigerated Van with branding of all the restaurants it has tied up with and it would roam across the city.It will be a CSR initiative for the restaurant and would also give them a free branding platform . The refrigerated cart will have day wise leftover stocks of all the restaurants its tied up with . The food would be stacked inside the van as per the cuisine it belongs to.If a particular food from a particular restaurant is not consumed within 3 days, it will be used as a bio waste to generate energy.
How it Works?
1) Download the app from Play store. ( Note : Its not yet developed)
2) Select the area you are in or switch on Auto detection
3) You can see and track the balancing cart in real time
4) Select the cuisine of your choice
5) Pay a nominal delivery fee . The food is for free!
6) Relish your food
Note All stocks >3 days will be highlighted in red and would not be up for consumption.
