We live in a digitalised world where everything is available in just a few clicks. Today, we perform almost every task digitally. Post pandemic, we have realised the convenience even more. The hospitality sector has also taken up the trend quite fast - food apps being the perfect instance of the same. We reply on these apps on a regular basis to get our favourite dishes. Taking a step forward (towards digitalisation), India gets its first smart food court in Pune. As per reports on multiple media outlets, the smart food court has opened its doors in Law College Road, Erandwane in Pune. The place will host more than 15 popular brands across food categories. "Spread across 3,000 sq. ft. the court offers a digital customer experience," the reports read.
