Food delivery service Foodpanda is to expand into other services, including groceries, household essentials and flowers.
The company will offer delivery service for items from more than 1000 retail partners in Singapore, including Caltex Star Mart, Eu Yan Sang, Hao Mart and Mothercare, with the guarantee of 25-minute delivery time.
“Over the past year, from the feedback we’ve received from our customers, it was clear that they wanted to enjoy even more convenience in their everyday lives,” said Luc Andreani, MD of Foodpanda Singapore. “This new expansion is a natural extension of our goal to deliver services that bring even more convenience and experiences to Singaporeans’ everyday lives.”
In the last three month, Foodpanda has recruited 100 engineers to manage the new platform and aims to hire up to 300 by the end of the year.
Foodpanda has a network of more than 8000 delivery riders and more than 7000 restaurant partners in the city.
