Commenting on the business, Mr. Kayum Dhanani, Managing Director, said: 

“Our performance during the quarter was modest despite prevailing subdued demand scenario. We recorded a  topline growth of around 15% primarily driven by growth in dine-in segment. During the first nine months, we  have added 31 new restaurants. Currently, we have around 14 restaurants under fit-out, which gives us  confidence of achieving our guidance of adding 40 new restaurants in FY23. We remain focussed on growing each  of our 4 business verticals to build one of India’s largest food services company owning its restaurant brands.” 

Commenting on the performance, Mr. Rahul Agrawal, CEO and Whole Time Director, said: 

“Our revenue growth during the quarter was primarily led by growth in dine-in business. The performance of  delivery segment was encouraging with around 15% sequential growth. Our delivery transaction volumes  continued to increase and with stable AOVs. This improvement was primarily driven by recent initiatives such as  menu re-engineering, new combo meals and launch of new Biryani brand, ‘Dum Safar’. Dum Safar is now available  at over 50% of our network and continues to generate strong traction from customers. We remain focused on  strengthening and accelerating our core dine-in business, growth in the delivery vertical, unlocking the growth  potential of Toscano and calibrated international expansion.”
