HipBar begins home delivery of alcohol in Odisha


Bhubaneswar: HipBar, India’s first specialised alcoholic beverages delivery app has started services in Odisha.

At present, the delivery service is live in Cuttack, and it will be launched in the towns of Sambalpur, Berhampur, and Rourkela very soon. Bhubaneswar is also expected.

HipBar’s delivery app is 100% compliant with the Government’s regulations and adheres to mandatory user authentication and age verification process, for every delivery.

Consumers can conveniently place their orders using the HipBar app, available on IOS and Android, and delivery will be done in fixed time slots.

For orders placed between 7AM – 4PM, orders will be delivered within the next available 2 hour time slot on the same day. If placed after 4PM, it will be delivered in the first slot the following morning.

HipBar is currently establishing a network of retailers across Cuttack and Odisha to cater to the demands of their consumers, and are confident that their prior experience of operating the home delivery service in the city of Bengaluru will add to the improved experience for customers.

As the service becomes more popular, HipBar aspires to converge all the licensed retailers to be an integral part of the network in Odisha. The company is also in talks with several other states that are looking to set up a home delivery service.

Commenting on the development, Prasanna Natarajan, Founder & CEO, HipBar, said, “At HipBar, we strive to create a safer, more responsible drinking environment across India. Customers in Odisha will enjoy the simple and easy ordering experience that our app provides, without having to step outside the safety of their homes.”

“We are certain that this move will empower the licensed retailers whose businesses have been impacted due to the Covid-19, and will definitely be a great way for them to service their captive audience through technology. We earnestly appeal to the retailer community to join hands with us in this win-win partnership,” said Natarajan.
