Glovo was founded in 2015 in Barcelona and has since then expanded operations to 3 continents that is Europe, Africa, and South America. The service is present in over 20 countries and more than 100 cities. In Africa, Glovo currently operates in Kenya, Morocco, Egypt and Ivory Coast with plans to expand to Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania.
The on-demand delivery app that launched operations in Nairobi late last year has announced that it has partnered with Java House Africa, Zucchini Greengrocers, On the way supermarkets and Naivas supermarkets. This is in a bid to expand their market footprint within Kenya.
The partnership with Java House Africa will involve connecting customers to the nearest Java outlet enabling them to order right from the app and enjoy delivery in less than 45 minutes. Glovo’s partnership with Naivas and On The Way will see Glovo expand the reach of the supermarkets to online customers seeking the convenience of ordering from the comfort of their homes and workplaces, with delivery in minutes.
William Benthall, Glovo’s General Manager for Kenya, had this to say, “Glovo is committed to providing our customers with any product from Nairobi within minutes. Today Glovo is launching partnerships with Naivas, Java House, and Onn The Way, adding these Nairobi institutions to the list of Nairobi’s best loved stores and restaurants that are already on the platform. Glovo is the only platform where consumers in Nairobi can access such a breadth of content within minutes and we are happy that the Glovo platform is helping our partners to access new customers who they may not have been able to access to date.”
