Cricketer Yuvraj Singh has reportedly invested in online restaurant reservation platform EazyDiner. He will also be the global brand ambassador of EazyDiner.
Founded in 2015 by Vir Sanghvi and other top hoteliers, EazyDiner is a restaurant table reservation platform. The app allows users to book reservations in eight Indian cities and Dubai. Currently, the app has about 53,000 restaurants listed on the platform. EazyDiner claims to have 15 Lakh unique subscribers every month.
EazyDiner also counts Sue Reitz, Rohit Dasgupta, Sachin Pabreja, Shruti Kaul, Ruchika Dhamija, and Manish Kutula as founders. The reservation platform offers reviews, recommendations, insiders’ tips, dining concierge services and deals, for every reservation.
At the time of launch, it was reported that EazyDiner had also roped in several eminent people in its advisory council like Oberoi Group Joint MD Vikram Oberoi, The Leela Palaces MD Dinesh Nair, Speciality Restaurants founder & CEO Anjan Chatterjee, among others.
EazyDiner CEO Rohit Dasgupta said: “We felt that Yuvraj and his personality resonates well with our brand and what we stand for”.
Yuvraj Singh has been closely associated with EazyDiner right from its inception, the company said.
“I am pleased to be associated with a brand like EazyDiner which is contributing to India’s restaurant business in such a significant way and creating memorable experiences for diners”, Yuvraj Singh said.
In August 2015, the startup raised $3 Mn in a new round of funding led by Saama Capital and its existing investor DSG Consumer Partners.
EazyDiner is currently live in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Goa in India and Dubai.
In April 2017, YouWeCan Ventures invested an undisclosed amount in Gurugram-based Startup Buddy. With this move, Yuvraj will join the company’s Board. Till date, it has invested in wellness platform Vyomo, edtech startup Edukart, automotive service marketplace Cartisan, online marketplace for private jets and helicopters JetSetGo, brand licensing startup Black White Orange Brands, among others.
