Milkshake brand Keventers has tied up with cloud kitchen platform ZFW Hospitality to scale its delivery business across Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, & other cities- as a start to a larger expansion through ZFW’s footprint in India.

“Given COVID-19 & the rapid shift in consumer preferences, we pivoted into building a sustainable cloud kitchen operating system for F&B brands- ZFW OS. ZFW builds kitchen-as-a-service for brands that wish to stay ahead of the curve & boost bottom-lines,” shared Madhav Kasturia, Founder, ZFW.

ZFW enables the growth of F&B and D2C brands without the upfront investment of setting up a physical kitchen. From an asset perspective, ZFW does not require any new equipment from brands or kitchen partners. Brands are able to full fill on-demand delivery orders at hyperlocal penetration in a short time frame, thereby reducing duplication of efforts & costs.
