Bhoklagyo Food Delivery
Satisfies your late night cravings
Where is it – Lazimpat
Founders – Pratiyush Man Singh, Shejey Agyitsang, Phinjock Sherpa and Abhishek Gurung (L to R)
What is it – It delivers food at your doorstep at night from 8pm and 4am
Nightlife activities in Kathmandu are limited. The city goes to sleep pretty early compared to other cities of the world, often wearing a desolate look. Apart from some bars and pubs, there are not many places you can hang out with friends. Getting snacks after 10 at night is a hassle. If you are among those who crave cooked food late at night, Bhoklagyo is the answer.
Bhoklagyo entered the market in January this year. A relatively unprecedented concept, it is picking up business slowly. Shejey Agyitsang co-founder states, “very few people know about our service in Kathmandu. Marketing is slow but a steady yet uphill task. Generally, we receive more orders on weekends”.
A team of eight takes 10 minutes to prepare food and 45 minutes to deliver it. All the food items on the menu are fast-food but cooked in a healthy manner. Before going on floor, the team of Bhoklagyo had assumed that they would get a huge response but reality has been a bit different. “We haven’t yet achieved an overwhelming sales volume but what we have achieved is creating a new business concept. We have received huge appreciation from existing customers and are positive and excited to see where we go in the coming months,” comments Agyitsang. To place an order, call the number on their website and have your food delivered.
