Online restaurant discovery and food delivery company Zomato Media Pvt. Ltd has invested an undisclosed amount in Hyderabad-based food delivery start-up TinMen. Owned and operated by Vicinia Retail Pvt. Ltd, TinMen is a home-cooked meal delivery app that currently serves across 10 major areas in Hyderabad.

Zomato co-founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a blog post “Zomato and Tinmen will work together, initially in Hyderabad and then across India, to provide access to better food for more people. Through Tinmen’s unique operating model, it generates a steady stream of revenue for its home-chefs, creating earning opportunities for people who love to cook great food. Our core advertising business in India, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East – the three key regions for us – is generating enough cash to cover for the millions of dollars of investments we are making into the rest of the regions for our new businesses, such as online food ordering, table reservations, Zomato Gold and Zomato Base”.
