He also shared pictures of himself on a Royal Enfield motorcycle holding a bunch of friendship bands which had ‘best food friends forever’ engraved on it.

Amused users reacted with praise and excitement about the CEO’s gesture. One person wrote, "Zomato orders over Swiggy today where people are hoping to meet the CEO.”

Another expressed a wish to receive Goyal as delivery partner asked whether he will be delivering in Chandigarh. A person thanked Zomato for being a ‘food friend’ in the absence of his domestic help.

This is not the first time Goyal has donned the role of a Zomato delivery person. On New Year’s Eve, Goyal decided to deliver a few orders received on the app and tweeted that his first drop was at the Zomato office itself. Overall, he said he delivered as many as four orders. Interestingly, his X bio reads, “Delivery boy at Zomato.”

Last week, Zomato posted a profit for the first time since its inception in 2008. On August 3, the company posted a net profit of 2 crore in the first quarter of the current financial year. Responding to a user’s quip on X that Goyal could have borrowed the 2 crore from him instead of going from house to house delivering orders, the CEO said, “Tweet of the day."

Recently, the food delivery platform rolled out on a trial basis a fee of 2 per order irrespective of the cart value. The app said it is a “small fee that helps us pay the bills so that we can keep Zomato running”.
