Marriott International partners with Swiggy for food delivery initiative

Marriott International announced that their ‘Marriott on Wheels’ delivery service initiative will now be available in more cities through an agreement with Swiggy. Marriott secured preferred placement on the Swiggy network, making it a mutually beneficial tool that allows outreach and exposure to thousands of customers using the platform. To start with, over 20 hotels in cities such as Bengaluru, Kolkata Chandigarh, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Agra, Pune, Mumbai, Coimbatore and Goa will be listed on the food aggregator’s platform. Each hotel has introduced a thoughtful and compact ‘Marriott on Wheels’ menu consisting of their signature dishes, most suited for safe consumption and secure deliveries.

Neeraj Govil, Senior Vice President, South Asia, Marriott International said, “The overall lifestyle changes and the manner in which we do business will have us taking a step out of the box, to ideate and create new experiences that are meaningful, valuable and convenient for our customers. Swiggy’s strong market credibility and advanced distribution network allows us to offer a satisfactory experience in this ever changing and sensitive environment.”

Vivek Sunder, COO, Swiggy, said, “This association will deliver curated assortments from Marriott on Wheels to customers (of both Marriott & Swiggy) and bring their favourite cuisine and delights right to their doorstep.”

Swiggy will execute “no-contact” deliveries on all pre-paid orders, which involve a delivery partner leaving the food at the doorstep rather than an in-person exchange. Both companies also have plans to expand this service to more hotels in other cities.
