Do you like to explore new flavours and tastes? Do you like to be surprised occasionally with a ‘gift’? Then this post is for you!
Thanks to online stores, gone are the days when all of us had to visit store after store to find what we need. And at times we returned unsatisfied, wondering, “Did I miss out on something”? Today one can sit in the comfort of our homes, or buy ‘on the go’, any and everything.
In today’s world of immediate gratification many are turning to online shops as the go to place even for their monthly food supply needs. The latest trend in online shopping is food subscription service, also known as food subscription box.
What is a Subscription Box?
A popular trend in the US, the Subscription model is just about entering the Indian market. As the name suggests – one signs up to receive a box on a regular basis, with content that you may have picked yourself (for example monthly supply of basic cleaning supplies for a house or an organization etc.) or choose an option where you are ready to be ‘surprised’ by the supplier. So, all you need to do is just subscribe to your favourite collection or “box” and they’ll be delivered to you on the same day, every week or month, as per your choice
As per ecommerceinsiders – “Subscription box, often referred to as subcom, is a business model in which the subscriber pays a flat, monthly fee to receive some type of “box”. Such boxes can be filled in with samples or actual, full sized products. Quite often these are new products or even a random selection, whereby the receiver doesn’t know what they have got until they open the box, adding a form of an element of surprise to it.”
Subscriptions boxes are making an entry in the Indian market too. With several sites offering gourmet foods, groceries and even handmade artisan preserves and chutneys, not surprising that one is seeing the entry of subscription boxes of food related products too.
