Rahil Shaikh and Nilesh Gaikwad, initiated Tech Mainstay Software to help all categories of food businesses leverage technology through its cloud-based end-to-end technology solution for managing restaurants through their software, TMBill.
TMBill was established in 2014 by Rahil Shaikh. It is based out of Pune, Maharashtra. The Restaurant Management Software, TMBill, enables food businesses varying from a self-attained and self-employed food outlet to large-sized food chains.
It helps manage several roles such as billing, CRM, QR code-based ordering, analytics, inventory management, waste management, customer loyalty, menu management, vendor management, among many others.
TMBill is an outstanding company which provides a comprehensive online cloud POS solution for Restaurants on Desktop and Mobile. The idea of helping food businesses manage their operations reaped in Rahil’s mind when he went wrong to strengthen his cloud kitchen due to the absence of an efficient and cost-effective management solution.
The startup currently comprises 20 developers and over 35 support and sales executives working from across India. It has successfully registered a universal presence, with more than 4000+ customers in over 290 cities and 9 countries.

Rahil formed TechMainstay in 2014, later Nilesh joined TechMainstay as the technological head and commenced to hold the responsibilities of the co-founder in 2016.
“While trying to purchase software to manage the business, I found the prices were in the range of Rs 80,000 to Rs 90,000, and we could not afford it. To address this requirement with an affordable and robust solution, we developed TMBill as an operating system for the F&B industry,” Rahil
