IRCTC mulls outsourcing new food outlets in Metro stations
By the end of September, IRCTC plans to operate a total of 91 food kiosks at Delhi Metro stations under the present brand name ‘Food Track’. It began in July 2011, by IRCTC signing <g data-gr-id="26">an MoU</g> with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for starting its kiosks on 130 locations, out of which 67 could be operationalised.
IRCTC Chairman and Managing Director Dr A K Manocha said the company had decided to open more food kiosks at Delhi Metro stations in view of the growing customer response.
“The revised methodology will provide <g data-gr-id="21">new</g> look to the kiosks and will also have co-branding of the firm and IRCTC’s own brand “FOOD TRACK”.
This will bring in new varieties of food items at the kiosks. We shall be able to introduce standard food items, from time to time, as per the demand in a particular location. The units will be under <g data-gr-id="22">supervision</g> of IRCTC” he pointed out.
Dr Manocha said work has already started on setting up new kiosks. “Once this process gets completed, IRCTC will be focusing on expanding food kiosks to new locations,” he added.
