Biryani By Kilo - Competitors

The competitors of the company are Bright Cellars, Paradise, Charcoal Eats, Biryani Blues and Behrouz . Let's see a few comparisons below!

  • Biryani by Kilo vs Bright Cellars

Biryani by kilo is a food services and delivery company found in the year 2015 whereas Bright Cellars works in a different way. They offer the subscription facility to its customers. This company was founded in the year 2014 a year ago. Both are private organizations but have got different tags. Biryani by kilo serves food and liquids within India and have got 443 Twitter followers whereas Bright Cellars serve manufacturing and industrial items along with food and beverages headquartered in Milwaukee, USA and have got 30.9k Twitter followers. Can you imagine 30.9k? It's a big deal to manage to achieve so many!

  • Biryani by Kilo vs Biryani Blues

This company is Biryani by Kilo's another rival which was found in the year 2013 before Biryani by Kilo in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. It generates a revenue of $3.1 million which is more than BBK.

  • Biryani by Kilo vs Paradise

This company lies in the top competitor list of BBK. It's headquartered in Secunderabad, AP, India. It was founded in the year 1953. Long ago than BBK. Researchers say that this company raises 1724% of the revenue of BBK.

  • Biryani by Kilo vs Charcoal Eats

This company is also BBK's one of the top competitors. Both the companies were found in the same year that is 2015. This company is headquartered in the western part of the county which is Maharashtra, India. This company operates in the food processing space especially and what BBK deals with you all know very well. It's a bit different but relatively same because they have the mutual word 'food' within them. It has got inferior employees than BBK.

  • Biryani by Kilo vs Behrouz

Everyone's taste and the choices are never the same. You will often find videos on Youtube with arguments that Behrouz is better than BBK. Do all actually believe? I guess firstly we should taste and then comment. I am saying this because I have seen certain videos where I found unbelievable stuffs. Prices of both the companies are almost equal. Yes it's a bit high. Some says BBK is the best biryani that we get online. Some says no. Sometimes there are complaints that the delivery is arriving late. Common man! That's not a big deal. Behrouz provides you with raita and sweets as well. Ratings for BBK is 3.6 and Behrouz is 4.2.

Biryani By Kilo - Future Plans

The company is aiming towards achieving a sales run rate of more than $5.8 million that is Rs. 40 crores in the coming years. The company plans to export it's Handi Biryani to UAE and UK. They are researching varieties of healthy items like quinoa biryani and brown rice biryani. They are opening soon 40 to 50 outlets of their brand in North India. I would personally like to say the future is holding a lot for this company and they will become more successful one day.
