Appeti – Marketplace for Specialty food

About Appeti:

Appeti is a newly established independent business in the online food industry delivering regional delicacies, sourced from origin and getting delivered right at the doorstep of customers. It will provide a market place to both customers as well as suppliers where they will be involved in buying and selling of regional delicacies and specialties.

Appeti Story:

The CEO of Appeti, Nitesh Prajapat, like many of us has felt the pangs of hunger, specifically for home food while being away from home. Instead of taking the occasional leave to go back home to enjoy one’s home town culinary delights, his innate foodie made him look for a solution that caters to his constant cravings. And an absence of a satisfactory solution made him take the plunge to be the service provider that provides inter-city delivery of local culinary delights 24*7. From there, the birth of Appeti has taken place. Bootstrapped and started in January 2015 by Nitesh along with Rakesh Garg (fellow seed investor) and Narendra Prajapati, the co-founder trio mentors a team of 5 other members to handle various functions of website and app development, marketing, finance and operations.

In Nitesh’s own words, “Appeti is an online marketplace that promises to deliver authentic Indian delicacies right from the place of their origin to any part of the country connecting the connoisseurs of food with purveyors of delicious Indian delicacies. We aren’t just ‘selling’ delicacies, we are delivering experiences and sentiments attached with a place. What better than authentic food? Also, partnerships with multi-geography logistics firms ensures speedy delivery to avoid any compromise on taste or freshness. Customer experience is of primary importance to us”.

If you are in Chennai looking for Agra’s Pethas, in Kashmir looking for Kerala Banana Chips, or in Ooty lookin for Hyderabad’s Karachi biscuits, Appeti’s users can find and buy all eateries, either by geography or categories such as Sweets, Snacks, Pickles, Bakery Products, Namkeen, or even Health food. These are just a few of the wide variety of packaged experiences Appeti is currently delivering pan India every day. To order up, visit
