foodpanda, one of Malaysia’s main online food delivery site, has just launched its service in Ipoh and Malacca.
As we get busier each day with our lives, sometimes our schedule control us. Sometimes we just cannot afford the luxury of eating out and we have to call for food delivery.
Foodpanda, in case you are unfamiliar with it, is a online food delivery site which has been growing in popularity. If you want to order food online, you can just head on to their website and choose the dish you want, and get it delivered to your office or your house. The service is available around the world, and in Asia, the countries they are operational in is in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan.
Foodpanda is easy to use: just choose your location, order your food, and you can get it delivered to you, after which you can pay the cash on delivery. Foodpanda takes a cut from each restaurant orders.
Earlier last week, Malaysia’s Foodpanda has just announced its official launch in Ipoh and Malacca, on top of Johor, the Klang Valley, and Penang. Previously, the web portal only offered restaurants with their own delivery service, but that has changed now, and delivery service is extended to even include restaurants without delivery service.
With a soft launch last Friday, foodpanda has already received some very encouraging feedback from residents of Ipoh and Malacca. “We never thought they would be bringing food delivery to our quiet city of Ipoh” says Shawn Lim, a local Ipoh resident and new foodpanda customer. “I am pleasantly surprised and find this service very convenient – plus delivery is free!”
“We are very happy to add Ipoh and Malacca to our list of cities that we provide delivery for – this is in line with our mission of making food delivery accessible to all Malaysians,” says Claudio Abitante, MD foodpanda.my. “We see a huge untapped potential in these cities and we think customers would appreciate the choice of food they can now get delivered to them for free,” he adds.
Starting with household brands such as Chatime, Kenny Rogers Roasters, Starbucks, Taang Shifu, A&W and Sakae Sushi, residents of Ipoh and Melaka can expect to see many other great restaurants including local favourites within the next few weeks. Delivery to Ipoh and Malacca is currently free. Delivery orders are taken via their website and mobile application on iOS and Google Play.
foodpanda.my currently operates in the Klang Valley, Penang, Ipoh, Melaka and Johor.
