GrabFood deliveries launch in Vietnam
Grab Vietnam is the first ride-hailing service in Southeast Asia to expand to GrabFood deliveries.
Starting today in Ho Chi Minh City, the service enables consumers to order food from nearby restaurants that have signed up to the new app. Merchant partners have an online storefront, and there is no minimum order requirement. The app also features promotions and recommendations.
The roll-out follows in such cities as Hanoi, Danang, Ha Long and Nha Trang.
“Food delivery is a natural extension of our transport offerings,” says Grab Vietnam country head Jerry Lim. “Each day, millions of people in Southeast Asia rely on ride-hailing services, while food-delivery services save them time.”
Meanwhile, in Indonesia and Singapore, the company will also add UberEats, which runs until end of this month, to its business.
GrabFood was launched in Jakarta in 2016, with Bangkok having a beta test last year. It is also currently in beta phase within the Singapore CBD.
