Zomato recently got listed on the market and it took us all through a journey, right from its inception to getting listed. The company has gone through quite many highs and lows and the internet has witnessed them all.
Here are a few of the iconic moments from the long journey that Zomato has endured from thinking ‘One Day’ to starting off with ‘Day One’ again.
Founded in 2008, the company started off with Foodiebay when founders Pankaj Chaddah (left) and Deepinder Goyal (right) started scanning menu cards and uploaded them online. This picture takes us right back to the start when Zomato was yet to become a startup.
Deepinder Goyal, hit fame when he got interviewed by Shereen Bhan in CNBC’s iconic show Young Turks. The video definitely was a highlight which had him in rapt conversation and in crisp presentation.

This campaign definitely caught eyes when the company took an initiative in showing the talents that their driver-partners had. These short videos definitely brought in a humanistic approach to the multiple scandals that Zomato has witnessed owing to their delivery partners.
The journey hasn’t been quite as easy too. When questions arose about Zomato’s business model, Rahul Yadav, the then-CEO of Housing.com, trolled Deepinder Goyal for just being a glorified restaurant scanner!
When the delivery boy’s smile went viral
When the infectious smile of a delivery boy went viral on the internet, Zomato decided to make it the display picture of its Twitter account. One of the most wholesome things to have been done, the boy is quite happy with his job and the amount of money that he makes.
