Comfort and convenience – two conditions that people especially need these days. With communities urged to take refuge in their houses for extended periods, food options become limited and inaccessible. However, with delivery service providers and riders who still persistently hail the streets from time to time, families within their homes can enjoy quality food and still satisfy their cravings.
On-demand platform foodpanda in particular, continue to highlight the 2 C's of online delivery—comfort and convenience—during these trying times with contactless delivery where the rider will place the customer's order to a specified place they agreed on, for both their safety.
Launched in the Philippines back in 2014, foodpanda reaches a new milestone with uninterrupted growth in partnerships, mission-driven advocacy, and unceasing humanitarianism. These, combined with its initiatives to bring about food appreciation and togetherness, are what make it a name worth remembering in the competitive food industry.
Just recently, foodpanda takes on a role to ease the burden of frontline healthcare workers the best way they know how – through delivering good food right to their workstations. All 18 cities across the Philippines where foodpanda caters were safely dispatched with meals, in collaboration with 80 of its partner restaurants joining in the initiative.
"During this difficult time, we would like to show our frontline healthcare workers how much we value their perseverance and hard work. We at foodpanda, along with our partners, delivered love and some food for our brave heroes in the country right now,'' said Camille Hadjeri, foodpanda's Managing Director.
As it aims to visit and send out food and refreshments to more hospitals and checkpoints in the coming days, foodpanda, together with its partner restaurants and riders, adheres to its mission of making good food more accessible to everyone and supporting the hardworking healthcare workers by delivering food they love.
Due to its consistency in staying true to its commitment, foodpanda has earned not just an immense following but also esteemed compeers who desire to bring good food on to every Filipino's plate, resulting to an ongoing nationwide expansion.
''We are very happy to continue expanding and opening new cities to the list of areas we deliver to. As we turned five this year, the team believes that the region of Visayas and Mindanao has a similar potential to Manila in terms of growth and expansion with a lot of potential for food delivery nationwide. Recently, we added operations in Baguio, Pampanga, Naga, Tagaytay, Cavite (Bacoor, Imus), Laguna (San Pedro), Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, Dumaguete, Tacloban, General Santos, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro. We intend to bring the best experience to consumers and we’re excited to see positive reactions from partner restaurants and customers,'' says Argie Muyco, Head of Expansion for foodpanda Philippines.
Over the years, countless success stories surfaced among foodpanda's business partners, allowing the influential entrance of some of the popular restaurants and biggest brands in the industry. To top it off, homegrown brands in the province heighten community-building with determined availability.
More than just rapid growth and expansion, the thriving food delivery service also champions the environment with its Go Green campaign.
Aiming to go plastic-free, foodpanda launched a ''no cutlery'' option on the app that garnered favorable reviews from partners and consumers alike. Aside from this, the platform plans on fully switching from plastic to paper bags, encouraging its partner restaurants to employ the same eco-friendly habit.
Furthermore, foodpanda adds its fleet of riders in a movement to support the sustainability efforts it is steadily imprinting in its track record. ''We, at foodpanda, are taking into account the importance of environmentally friendly delivery service by continuously increasing our group of non-motorcyclist riders. This is so we can potentially lessen our contribution to pollution and traffic on the streets,'' added Hadjeri.
As foodpanda takes on a new journey, it has persistently shown how commitment-driven strategies are the fundamentals of success in mobilizing social consciousness, operation expansion, public-spiritedness and charity.
