Wal-Mart is making it easier to buy Indian restaurants, and it is also changing the names of many of them.
In a major move, the world’s largest retailer has opened a website in India to help its restaurants navigate the country’s complex laws and regulations, including online purchasing and payment.
The online ordering and payment system is called Indigogo, and the company has already opened a small store in Bengaluru, India’s financial capital, to accept payments.
But its biggest launch yet came on Friday when it opened a retail outlet in Bangalore, India, the nation’s largest city.
The company, which is owned by billionaire Sam Walton, is opening a brick-and-mortar shop in India’s second city, Bangalore, as it seeks to attract more tourists to its malls.
The new store will be located at the corner of two busy streets, Mall Road and Rajarajeshwari Road, in Bengal, which has a population of 1.2 million.
“We’re just in the beginning of our business here in India, but it is really important that we make our business accessible to more people,” said Rishi Gupta, the chief operating officer of Walmart India, at the opening.
“We want to give customers in India the best shopping experience possible, so we’re working hard to do this.”
Our customers want to shop at Walmart.
They want to have their friends visit their stores.
And that’s the main thing.
We want to make sure we are doing all the right things.
“The new stores will open by the end of this year, with the aim of adding 1,000 to 1,500 stores in India by the second half of the year.
Walmart said it will spend at least $4 billion on opening stores in the country, including an initial investment of $500 million in Bengal.
The company expects to spend $10 billion on expanding its operations in India over the next two years.
In the US, Walmart’s move into India has also spurred concerns about the new rules for restaurants in the nation, which many say limit the amount of money that can be made from a menu.
The US Food and Drug Administration recently issued a warning against the use of an online ordering system for certain food products, saying it could be misused.
The new rules have yet to be finalized.
In India, Walmart has a strong presence in the malls and shopping centres.
The retail giant is also a major investor in the city’s biggest department stores, where it has a presence in more than 10,000 stores.
In 2017, Walmart said its India business generated $7.6 billion in revenue.
The Indian market is expected to grow by more than $5 billion in 2019.
