Innovation has become the keyword of the hour. Companies, businesses, corporates, scientists, doctors, researchers, and almost everyone is trying to come up with ways to cope up with the situation and help find a solution for it. The latest to join the list is MMT. While you already know about the services it provides of taking you around to your chosen destinations and making your travel experiences smooth, easy, and worthwhile, it has now added another feather to its hat. They’ll now deliver food to your doorstep.

MMT recently joined hands with premium hotel chains and independent properties to roll out its online gourmet delivery services from five-star hotels in multiple cities across the country. It will begin the services in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bengaluru, where it has partnered with Roseate and JW Marriott. The services will later see an extension to Pune, Jaipur, Kolkata, and many other cities.
