A bit of Blinkit’s History & Revenue Numbers

Blinkit formerly called Grofers, was acquired by Zomato last year, 2022 in an all-stock deal of ₹4,447 crores. On the acquisition of loss-making Blinkit, co-founder and CEO of Zomato Deepinder Goyal had said, “I know that most investors currently ascribe zero value to the Blinkit business, and that's understandable. But I am confident this will change in due course of time”

After the acquisition of Blinkit by Zomato in August 2022, the grocery-delivery platform’s revenue rose by 48% by September 2022. Despite the losses, Blinkit has been actively looking into the expansion of its dark stores.


Blinkit recent launches

The quick grocery delivery app also recently started the delivery of printouts in select cities. However, the brand is not just limited to grocery shopping. Tobacco, Paan, Rolling Paper, Hookah, Candies, and Gums are also available to order on the grocery 8-minute delivery app.

Zomato’s CEO and Co-founder, Deepinder Goyal has also stepped down from the Urban Company board of members most likely due to a conflict of interest between Blinkit and the Urban Company.

The Urban Company is a similar home-services company offering professional home services on demand such as plumbing, electrician, AC repair, salon, spa, pest control & others. It is backed by Tiger Global & other investors with the latest funding of USD 188 million and has a presence in other countries like USA, UAE, India & more.
