Cookups shuts down its operations for app and food delivery

Acclaimed startup Cookups has announced a shut down of its operations in app and food delivery service. In a Facebook post earlier this evening, Cookups made the announcement, stating lack of sufficient funding as one of the reasons to discontinue.

However, the Cookups Facebook page will stay for their other venture, Cookups Rannaghor. Cookups Rannaghor is a delivery only kitchen serving Bangla cuisine.

Cookups released the following statement today:

Dear Diners,

It is with a very heavy heart that we need to announce that we have decided to discontinue and shut down operations for the Cookups app and food delivery service. Today will be our last day of deliveries. We are very sorry it had to come to this as we were unable to raise sufficient funding to continue. Thank you immensely for being part of that part of our journey and for believing in us and we are grateful for the opportunity we had to bring you delicious food from amazing cooks from around the city. We are however going to use this page for our venture Cookups Rannaghor going forward, which as of now you can order through Uber Eats.

Lots of love,

Team Cookups
