IRCTC to open food outlets at stations; in talks with companies

The group is also planning to take its annual earnings to Rs 50 crore from the current earning which is 30 crore annually. IRCTC is also planning to open about 56 food outlets at Delhi Metro stations across New Delhi.

IRCTC is in talks with food majors in India, like Cafe Coffee Day, Pizza Hut, Barista, Subway and Jumboking to open outlets at stations.

The group is also planning to take its annual earnings to Rs 50 crore from the current earning which is 30 crore annually.

"To begin with, Mapple hotels have been selected to run the food plaza at Hardiwar station. There are 106 other food plazas and fast food units that are at various stages of commissioning at places like Bhavnagar, Delhi Cantonment, Kanpur Central and others,” said R N Kalita, Director, Catering Services, IRCTC.

IRCTC is also planning to open about 56 food outlets at Delhi Metro stations across New Delhi.

Travel Food Services (TFS), a Mumbai-based brand which is running restaurants, cafes, food courts and manages lounges across major airports in the country, will launch similar executive lounges across railway stations like Vijayawada, Howrah and Jaipur by next April. These lounges would be anything between 1,500 sq ft and 3,500 sq ft.

"We share the common vision of changing the travel experience of passengers with the Indian Railways. Our big challenge is to organise the scattered F&B services that are available at railway stations," said Gaurav Deewan, COO, Travel Food Services.

Keeping in mind the heterogeneous consumers in railway stations, food items of all price range would be served at the railway and metro stations by the food companies.

Meanwhile, JumboKing, which operates more than 70 outlets in India has proposed 20 outlets across stations in New Delhi in places like IFFCO Chowk metro station and HUDA City Centre metro station.
