Swiggy hit a rough patch in 2020
When the worldwide pandemic hit, nearly every kind of business was impacted. While delivery services were in high demand, the number of business closures and people who were unemployed hit all segments of the economy in India as well as throughout other parts of the world. Swiggy had grown large in the size of its network and had employed thousands of workers in various parts of India. Because of the lack of businesses in operation, the Covid-19 pandemic forced Swiggy to lay off more than 1000 of its workforce.
