Iftar Move: They make it before you break it5 years ago Shalini B
Ramadan Mubarak! India, being known to accommodate multiple religions and numerous festivals, among all of these Ramzan is considered to be the holy month, where devotees follow a religious custom of fasting and eating only after their ‘Iftar’ prayers.
While people fast the entire day, it is quite a normality for them to get restless when it is time to break their days fast – in this, wouldn’t one dread the thought of being a part of the crowd in the city, to order food? Understanding this, 4 members came together to serve Iftar/ Suhoor conveniently to people of all generations. Iftar Move is the technology based startup with the main aim of using technology and this era of Internet to make serving of Iftar/Suhoor convenient for people of all generations.
What is Iftar Move?
Iftar Move is a Food Delivery Service that runs for a month in a year. It uses technology services like chat bot on messenger, application on platform, dynamic web content & phone call as a service. It started to operate for the very first time in Hyderabad on 6th June 2016. Iftar Move has received wide recognition for its magnificent Hygienic Food Production & on Time Door Delivery in the city from Major newspapers to media personalities.
The Birth of Iftar Move
The idea originated back in 2015 on the day when Umair Abdullah’s (Co-founder) mother was away and he had to prepare Iftar on his own. He neither knew how to cook nor did he have the energy left to search for variety items after the day long fast. That’s when he began to wish if there was a food delivery system that delivered the right food that is required to break the fast. From then on, he took up the task to research about this and in May 2016 when he was just a month away from Ramazan, he was doing a group study for finals and just like the usual procrastinating talks, he happened to discuss this idea with his friends. They seemed interested to, and that’s how the startup was born.
The startup is the success story of two pillars –
- Umair Abdullah – Executive Iftar Move
- Shahbaz Khan – Executive Suhoor Express
The startup was started with 4 Members initially on Day 1 of Ramazan 2016, and today they are a combined group of 30 members along with Suhoor Express (that debuts this year 2017).
