Pankaj Poddar, Group CEO, Cosmo Films

23 Feb 2022 , 01:02 PM

In an interaction with Mamta Maity, indiainfoline.com, Mr. Pankaj Poddar, Group CEO, Zigly, Cosmo Films, Cosmo Ferrites & Cosmo Speciality Chemicals said “Zigly will also prove to be an effective platform for people who wish to be fastest trained for all pet-related activities like behaviour training, grooming, pet walking, and more.”

What was the idea behind Zigly?

With Zigly, we aim to bridge the gap of the growing market demand for expert services and quality products as the pet care industry is one of the growing industries. We are providing several unique services like grooming, veterinary care, behaviour training, pathology, and pet products, all under one roof. Zigly will also prove to be an effective platform for people who wish to be fastest trained for all pet-related activities like behaviour training, grooming, pet walking, and more.

We envision becoming one stop shop for all pet care products and services not just in India, but across the world.

What are the products and services offered by Zigly?

At Zigly, we provide a wide array of Products, Vet consultations, & quality grooming services via offline and online channels. While there are several other players in the pet care industry, our USP lies in the fact that we are India’s first tech-enabled platform which will prove to be a one-stop solution for pet parents for any of their needs, be it grooming, products, or veterinary care. We take pride in understanding what a pet parent truly wants – to have their pets lead a life brimming with health and happiness – and are passionate about making that possible.

What makes Zigly different from others in the Indian market?

Zigly is India’s first tech-enabled Omni-channel pet care platform, and we are using the power of technology to change the current pet care industry in India. While we are available offline in Delhi, and will soon open stores in different metro cities as well; our website is a one-stop solution where one can easily buy products, book appointments for Veterinary services, book grooming sessions for their pets, and much more. We are also soon coming up with an app, which will include all the features mentioned above and some value-added features for our customers. 

Till now, how many stores have you launched?

We have launched our first Experience Center in Delhi and a website pan India. Spread over an area of 6,000-sqft, the experience center is inbuilt with a retail area for wide-ranging products, including nutritional supplements and hygiene products, treats and toys as well as accessories and, dedicated sections for grooming, spa, consultation, pathology, vaccination, and pet treatments.

What are your future plans?

In the past decade, India has seen an increase in pet ownership, owing to rising disposable income largely in the middle class, more nuclear families, rapid urbanization, and the changing attitude of people towards humanizing pets as part of the family.

This growth is going to play well with us as well, and we are looking at healthy growth with more offline stores in major metro cities already in the pipeline. We are looking at revenues close to 400 – 500 cr. in the coming 5 years. Very soon we will have a Zigly App and experience centers across all metros. We plan to open 150 stores across the country in the next five years.

Tell us more about the free online vet consultation provided by Zigly to all pet owners across the country.

We started the free online vet consultation amid increasing Covid-19 cases in the country where physical consultation may be difficult to access for some people. Our goal is to assist the pet and the pet parents to get access to high-quality vet care even if physical access is a barrier.
