What was the overview of the project? Elaborate with some details
This project deals with the overall restaurant industry in Delhi. Initially I started by understanding the demographic position of the city where we find that the city is surrounded by NCR region which brings a huge customer to the city restaurants. I started my study initially by understanding each of its part separately and try to understand the behaviour of consumers in different part of the city in order to provide a solid business solution to our clients. First we have started by understanding the revenue model of market leader zomato. After that we try to understand the traditional foodies perspective in Delhi. Through different sources we find the growth in this industry, % wise share of restaurants in Delhi, and possibility of any new market. Together with we find a good research paper on west Delhi which is based on survey of some consumers that provide some unique findings. We also had developed survey for south delhi and east delhi which is a potential market. With the help of survey we also find some things which seems to be useful for serving our clients. We have tested them on various parameters like distance, food quality, influence, their source of finding restaurants etc
