April 3, 2024

Let’s recall a situation when we forget things at home in the rush to reach the office on time. Imagine reaching the school but forgetting the lunch box. Remember the time when you were not well, and you needed someone to get you the medicines? Do you also wish to send your handmade food to your relative living in a far-off area but fail to do so due to a lack of time to deliver the same? Relax! Swiggy, a problem-solver, has devised a solution for all such situations. 

Swiggy identified the rising demand for home delivery of products and services. Two years ago, the food delivery platform introduced Swiggy Genie to leverage this opportunity of delivering daily products and services using the same delivery infrastructure that it has been using for the delivery of food for customers, which has created a revolution in the hyperlocal delivery space.

The idea of “Swiggy Genie” was to deliver anything to the doorstep of the user. It was called “Genie” because of the stories we heard from our childhood that a Genie is a wish-granting saviour. Similarly, this service fulfils the wishes of its users by assisting them in making quick deliveries from one location to another. Read on to find out what exactly Swiggy Genie is and what services are included in it.
