While most people celebrate New Year’s Eve with family or friends, Zomato CEO Deepinder Goel was out delivering orders. Food aggregators like Zomato see a heavy spike in orders on special occasions like the evening of December 31, so Goel decided to do his bit.
“I’m going to deliver a couple of orders on my own right now. Should be back in an hour or so,” Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal tweeted on December 31.

To his surprise, his first delivery brought him back to the Zomato office.
