So we are enjoying while building a beautiful platform for Food and beverages, its fun.

So who wants to get their food reviewed, bring it on and we will write a honest review (so your food must be lip smackingly good before you send to us).

DONE Platform as a service for Food and Beverages

Our journey started off when we build first mobile app and web app for our customer “poncho” who did not want to invest in capex as well as technology but still wanted their orders to flow and manage digitally.

We wanted our business to become a B2C thinking that we will own the customer. We soon realized that preparing for a B2C model from day one will involve quite a bit of heavy lifting and we wanted to stay lean.

We added our call center and CRM service to the mix. To our surprise, this had more engaging response from restaurant then ever before. Today, everybody wants to focus on their core business of preparing food and scaling their outlets. So all restaurant brands are looking at partner who will manage all their ordering as well as provide insight in to their customers.

So we now have developed DONE as a platform to serve restaurant brands end to end to manage their online, on mobile and call orders.

Engage customers through mailers, SMS, push notifications, discounts to up sell.

An excellent value to them at great price points. So here is preview of what we are and have to offer (till our website is live)

While restaurants prepare YUMMY FOOD, we make the YUMMY ORDERING!

Free Ice Creams are Good

 So here is the biggest advantage of servicing clients in F & B industry. You get to try different types of Foods.
And I would be surprised if anyone did not like ice creams 😉

You got that by NOW! We found a new prospect. It was none other then Naturals Ice Cream of Juhu.

There management as well as all the staff is as good as their ice creams – HUMBLE!

We managed to get a children’s visit to their factory.  And we got a very good insight in to ice cream making process.

So I have figured a process of making ice cream but making with such accuracy is where Naturals wins the game.

Over all process involves following –

1. Milk..Milk..Milk – The milk is processed and all the water is sucked out of it to make it as thick as possible. It is heated to several degrees for several times. There are huge machines for the same. It is then cooled and filled in a tank.

2. Fruit..Fruit..Fruit – The fruits are nicely cleaned, separated and made ready for the pulp. Pulp has just the fruit and sugar. These are very neatly packed in air tight packs.

3. Ice Creams – The Ice cream is a mix of just 2 things – Milk, Fruit pulp (any chocolates of any). The mixer is a machine which mixes this milk while it is going down in temperature and the fruit pulp. The outcome is softest and freshest ice cream you would see.

Few things that I need to highlight –

1. Quality Control of highest order.

2. Hygiene of highest order.

3. Ingredients of highest order.

Leads to making ice creams of highest order.

Kudos to Naturals for giving it’s consumers the best ice cream in town.

done-logo-1

2020 will have 8 billion people across the globe. The figure doesn’t really matter. Point is- People are local! They have always been and will always be! They’ll have a local fast food joint to eat from, a preferred local restaurant to dine at, a local pharmacy to quickly deliver stuff, a local branch to bank with, a local language to communicate in and their list of ‘favorite locals’ is endless…

People are Local because they want it NOW! Local is NOW!

DONE is a local commerce company that allows consumers to discover, explore and order food and beverages from their favorite local outlets using App, Web & Call.

It’s QUICK, It’s WOW, It’s DONE!

Why the name Done?

Done is a very commonly used term when you get things “done”. Even in a normal conversation, we use the term like “Done hain sir”, “Done hain Done”, “chalo Done hain phir” and so on.

So in our daily language Done word is used to signify something which you “complete”.

And that is exactly what we stand for “Complete”.

So you may want to ask, how are we doing it exactly?

Well, For that you got to stay tuned. We will soon see the magic of curtains.

Till then done dana done done!
