Bite Club was launched in late 2014 by Prateek Agarwal, Aushim Krishan and Siddharth Sharma. The startup was conceptualised to make home-style food accessible to everybody.

It acts as a marketplace connecting chefs and consumers. The portal has daily-changing menu that customers can order from through their mobile or web app. The food is prepared by a curated community of home chefs, amateur chefs, and professional chefs.

The food delivery platform brings a mix of offerings in the gourmet and comfort food segment across regional Indian and world cuisines within the price range of INR 100-300 (under US$5) per person.

Bite Club claims to have already served over 100,000 meals within one year of its inception, and is currently delivering almost 1,000 meals a day.

Earlier this year, the company had raised an angel round of funding from Powai Lake Ventures with participation from angels, including Aneesh Reddy (Capillary Technologies), Ashish Kashyap (Goibibo Group) and Alok Mittal (Canaan Partners).
