Abhijit Saxena, CEO Zonnett
said, “Water is a precious resource that is depleting day by day and the statistics are dangerously low. As we at Zonnett always believe in betterment of our customers and the society through our initiatives, we came up with the idea of ‘Zero Water Car Wash’. This innovative solution is not only distinctive, but, also helps in preventing one of the biggest crisis of water shortage that we face in the near future. We are focusing on saving water through our ‘Zero water car wash’ campaign which is targeted towards the residential societies in Mumbai primarily. Also, we will be introducing other doorstep modules soon for our customers.”
Commenting on the business model, Abhijit Saxena said,
“Currently the automobile repair and service market is fragmented and unorganized. It is a difficult task for a car owner to find a trusted car service provider at an affordable price. We realized that there is a huge price gap between the authorized dealers and the local garages, and how difficult it is for a car owner to find a trusted service centre that does not charge an exorbitant amount. The idea of starting Zonnett was germinated due to a similar personal experience and since inception we have been receiving phenomenal response from our customers.”
Zonnett is a technology enabled platform with a hyperlocal business model which offers services through its mobile app, website and a toll free number. Zonnett plans to expand to some other cities in the next 2-3 months. The company has raised seed funding of Rs. 2.5 crore and plans to raise $10 million in Series A funding which will be used for growth and expansion.
Through Zonnett’s mobile app, website or Toll free number, the customer can easily map the best garage in his/her locality.
