Amazon delivery boy starts own company, rakes in a lakh every month


Who doesn’t want to sit back home and get everything at their doorsteps without hassles. After all it’s a dynamic world full of advancements. Here’s when e-commerce giants enter to ensure smooth online delivery for clients. A lot of startups have entered the industry who are offering food delivery services. Most of these are currently catering only to the urban corporate cities, leaving maximum other cities uncovered.

Knowing about this gap, Raghuvir Singh Chaudhary founded a startup which offers tea and snacks at doorsteps in Jaipur.

Raghuvir hails from Jaipur and belongs to a poor background. Owing to his difficult financial circumstances, he was only able to complete his schooling and then he had to give up higher education. He had to earn his living therefore he started to work as a delivery boy in Amazon. There he was paid Rs 9000 per month. Since he did not have a bike, he travelled by a cycle to deliver at doorsteps of each customer.

Travelling by cycle was tiering for Raghuvir, and hence he often used to take tea breaks to unwind. The most challenging thing for him was to find a good tea place. He realised that there will be many like him who would struggle to find good tea after a hectic day of work. This triggered him the idea for his startup.

Raghuvir then started working on the idea along with three other friends of his. Eventually he started building his network with the nearby vendors, soon interacting with over 100 vendors. Now his tea and delivery service is so good that there are a number of vendors who now order tea from him. One of the biggest achievements came when he could buy a bike for himself.

Presently Raghuvir has four tea delivery centres in Jaipur, and receives over 500-700 orders on an average every day. He earns Rs one lakh every month, and is now a proud owner of four bikes used for delivery purposes.
