Diaz club is the brainchild of foodie and techie expert Sonal Pande. After her graduation in Computer science, she worked with top MNCs. The interest, work experience and zeal to achieve the goal helped them to exploit the opportunity. Food being their interest they were always wanted to experiment something new in the city but a lack of information made them brainstorm the concept Dibz club.

We have started with the F&B segment and our geographical focus is to establish the presence in all Tier 2 and 3 Indian cities. We partner with the best brands/outlets across every city and offer deals that are lucrative for the buyers, yet sensible for the business. Dibz App offers deals at the most coveted restaurants and hotels which otherwise remain distant from discounting. We make it possible through investigation of each partner’s business dynamics, thus enabling strategic proffering.
