Table of Contents

E-catering services have been gaining steep popularity among real travelers. While traditional services like railway catering and near-station food have their place, mass passengers are looking for other options for reliable, hygienic, and convenient food.

As a result, they are quickly moving towards rail e-catering platforms like Rail Kafe. In this blog, we will have a deep look at these platforms and see how RailKafe differs from all.

What is a Rail E-Catering platform?

Rail e-catering platforms like Railkafe are independent food platforms that help rail 

travelers connect to nearby restaurants. They do it in these four steps:

  1. They collect orders from the passengers on their platform
  2. Once the order is collected, they send those orders to the restaurants
  3. Restaurants then prepare the ordered meal
  4. They deliver the food to the berth of the passenger. 

The traditional food options available to the rail passengers are severely limited in terms of choice of dishes or hygiene. The train catering services have little variety or restaurants like the taste. On the other hand, station food lacks hygiene for a good meal.

These platforms solve this problem. They help passengers access hundreds of tasty and hygienic food options without spending excess money.
