HungryForever.com is the first, and will always be our most beloved
HungryForever.com is a food blog that covers food news, trends, reviews, guides, restaurants, places to eat, chefs, interviews and recipes in Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi – India. Four on ground editors cover local content in their cities. Overall, 10 people work full time on the site. Mobile apps for Android, iOS and even Windows Phone are available. HungryForever sees a monthly million readers (half on site and half through our other distribution channels). Users spend 4 minutes on average on site and we have a 25 percent bounce rate.
The exploding food culture in India needs a food content portal to go with it. While Indians are passionate foodies by default, some of us are better at expressing food than others. Indians are also the largest consumers of recipe content on the internet. There are some dishes that need to be preserved on the internet, forever.
We started with a writer in Chennai, covering only local food content, and general “foodie stuff”. We added a focus to the content and began to cover news and other trending food-related stuff. We expanded to Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. By 2015 we had four writers on the roll in four different cities. We also began to focus on video content in 2016. We redesigned our complete web presence. We launched our mobile apps.
SocialiteCard.com is one way we’re looking at monetization. Services and video advertorials have also started coming in regularly.The future is bright and hungry.
