Story behind Hitech Crackers :
“Like all the other youngsters with loads of excitement and enthusiasm, we waited for the most awaited festival , Diwali during 2013. As usual, I was given 500 bucks by my Dad, who wanted me to get lump sum crackers to enjoy for the whole night. I ran to the ground where all the Diwali crackers stalls were installed. I returned home with crackers filled in a 1 Kg polythene and felt very disappointed. I took another 500 bucks to get few more crackers but I went to another shop, where I got crackers that filled a 5kg polythene. I was amazed and this made me analyse to what extent cracker dealers are filling their pockets. I started digging more into the pricing part and learnt that the manufacturing cost and selling costs are hugely disproportionate and customers are at the mercy of the pricing the shop sellers quote. All this makes it so difficult for a middle class family to enjoy Diwali with the retail pricing of Diwali crackers.”
This experience had lead to an urge in Vishwajeeth to start Hitech Crackers and offer crackers at the best retail prices possible and make the Diwali experience affordable to people. He teamed with his best friends Vishnuvardhan and Naveen and started in August 2014. They started offering online purchase and delivery service in 3 cities; Hyderabad, Warangal and Karimnagar.
“We launched our website in September 2014, tried social media and several other marketing techniques, but were very disappointed with the response. We offered the maximum discount holding only 5% to cover maintenance and operations . Still, people didn’t care. We realised, this may not work out. Then we thought, why not do something useful to the society along with running a business. We came up with two initiatives for a greener nation and a social cause. We donate a part of the order amount to charity on the customer’s behalf and plant a tree on behalf of them for every order we receive. One week before the festive day, we received our first order and made us jump in air with happiness and we felt so proud to serve the customers using our own brand name. Our beloved customers didn’t leave us disappointed.” quotes Vishwajeeth.
And since then there was no looking back for these youngsters.
