Restaurant food delivery company Foodpanda Malaysia has announced that it has entered into a partnership with convenience store chain giant 7-Eleven.
To bring more convenience to consumers in Malaysia, Foodpanda Malaysia will now offer delivery services of snacks, beverages, confectionery and prepaid reload cards from 7Eleven stores in the Klang Valley, Subang, Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Johor Bahru and Penang.
What this means is that consumers can now go to the Foodpanda Malaysia website and order 7Eleven items, which includes the popular telco prepaid reload cards, and have them delivered to the consumers’ house.
Ronan Lee, General Manager (Marketing) of 7-Eleven Malaysia says “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. This is in line with 7-Eleven’s Malaysia tagline of being “Always There For You” – by providing added convenience to people on the go looking for everyday items. We are very happy to work with Foodpanda and leveraging on their delivery platform to bring 7-Eleven right to our customer’s doorstep.”
“We think customers will appreciate the convenience that both Foodpanda and 7-Eleven will be providing with this tie-up” says Claudio Abitante, Managing Director of Foodpanda Malaysia. “We currently see an increase in demand for convenience store items – as we see customers requesting for snacks on top of food delivery orders”
To celebrate this unique collaboration, any orders via Foodpanda for 7-Eleven offerings will have no delivery fee for 11 days beginning 7th February 2014. They will also be offering RM10 rebate vouchers with no minimum purchase condition for new Foodpanda customers – just visit 7-Eleven’s and FoodPanda Malaysia website and Facebook page for more details.
Foodpanda operates between 10AM to 11PM daily. You can order your favorite convenience store items for delivery from Foodpanda.my via their website, iOS and Android application. Payment can be made via Credit Card, PayPal or cash on delivery.
Foodpanda and its affiliated brand hellofood is the fastest growing online food delivery marketplace worldwide currently operating in four continents.
The partnership with 7Eleven shows that Foodpanda might be exploring the online grocer delivery services, a new form of generating more revenue for the group.
