FoodPanda launches premium delivery service in Singapore
By Digital News Asia May 1, 2015
- Covers 50 outlets in CBD district, delivery charges cut by up to 50%
- After three years in Singapore, now has 400 restaurant partners
FOOD delivery marketplace FoodPanda is celebrating its third anniversary in Singapore with the launch of a premium delivery service for nearly 50 outlets across the city-state’s Central Business District (CBD) area.
In a statement, FoodPanda said it now has over 400 restaurant partners in Singapore, with the latets additions being Burger King, Chicken Up, Hardrock Café, Manhattan’s Fish Market, Nando’s, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks, Shin-Sapporo Ramen and Timbre.
The premium delivery service, which started May 1, allows patrons to receive their food within 60 minutes after placing their order via the foodpanda mobile app or the website, while cutting the delivery charge by up to 50%.
The new service comes a month after FoodPanda announced a funding round of US$110 million. The funding came after FoodPanda announced it had fully acquired competitors in seven Asian countries, including Food Runner, which operates the Room Service business in Malaysia and Singapore.
“As the leading platform in offering the widest selection of deliverable food options, we strive to ease the lives of our customers by simply delivering the food you love to wherever you are,” said FoodPanda Singapore marketing director Cassandra Ong.
“We constantly listen to the feedback of our customers as well as delivery riders. So besides welcoming additional restaurant partners to the FoodPanda family to give our customers an even greater choice, we followed the call for shorter delivery time at a lower price tag,” she added.
