Most recently in June, ShopeeFood Indonesia also announced that it was expanding to cover more cities in an Instagram post. The service is now also available in Bandung, Jogja, Surabaya, and surrounding areas.

That same month, Shopee adopted the same strategy for its Malaysia market. It uploaded on its Facebook page a post looking for “ShopeeFood delivery partners in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor”, along with a list of requirements.
