Items currently on the menu include high-in demand snacks, beverages, confectionery and prepaid reload cards with more new items to be added in the near future, FoodPanda Malaysia said in a statement.
“We are happy to announce that we are the first and only convenience store in Malaysia to provide delivery services to selected areas in collaboration, with FoodPanda, as an ‘extra convenient’ option for consumers,” said Ronan Lee (pic above, right), general manager of marketing at 7-Eleven Malaysia.
“We think customers will appreciate the convenience that both FoodPanda and 7-Eleven will be providing with this tie-up,” says FoodPanda Malaysia managing director Claudio Abitante (pic above, left).
“We currently see an increase in demand for convenience store items, as we see customers requesting for snacks on top of food delivery orders,” he added.
