It’s been 45 days since we launched Zomato Treats in multiple cities, after a month-long pilot in Gurgaon. Treats is a membership program specially crafted for our users who love using Zomato Order to get food delivered home. As a Zomato Treats member you get a complimentary dessert, handcrafted by the restaurant’s chef, every time you order a meal from one of our partner restaurants in India or the UAE.

Why treats? Ever since we launched Zomato Gold for our users in the UAE and Portugal back in March, we’d been getting requests from our loyalest users in India asking what we had in store for them. While we’re lining up the launch of Zomato Gold in India soon, we wanted to start off by introducing something for our food ordering users first.

Buying a subscription in India lets you use it in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Pune, and Ahmedabad. Buy it in the UAE, and you can use it in either Dubai or Abu Dhabi. That’s the beauty of Treats – you can order a meal online from a partner restaurant in any of these cities, and you will receive dessert with it. These desserts are, most of the times, the most popular desserts in a restaurant’s menu.

And to sweeten the deal further, Treats is priced at just ₹299 per year in India, and 39 AED for six months in the UAE! Zomato Treats is one of those things in life which are too good to be and true.

How’s it going? Today we’re delighted to announce that we’ve hit our first milestone with over 10,000 paid subscribers for Zomato Treats, and have already served over 80,000 complimentary desserts as part of the program! From Phirni to Brownies and Oreo Shakes to Detox Juices – our 2500 partner restaurants are delighting users with sweet surprises every day 🙂

We have already seen a ~25% jump in order frequency for members subscribing to Zomato treats and see this trend holding over time.
