Food deliveries have been in demand since the beginning of the community quarantine, as it is a way for us to get our restaurant favorites without actually going out.
While some think it’s unfortunate for riders to be risking their lives at a time of a health crisis, doing deliveries is a way for them to earn amid the pandemic—and customers, on the other hand, are helping them by simply placing their orders. (Read: An Angkas Rider’s Daily Hustle Amid Pandemic)
However, the long-time concern in the Philippines is that not many areas in the country have delivery services that can provide job opportunities to riders and aid in the needs of local citizens. Luckily, food delivery services such as FoodPanda have been constantly working on expanding their service to more cities.
Just recently, FoodPanda has announced that they will soon be available in 12 more cities near Metro Manila. Their expansion will cover Malolos, Dasmariñas, Iligan, Legazpi, Butuan, Koronadal, Ormoc, Cabanatuan, Dagupan, Olongapo, Novaliches, and Batangas.
According to FoodPanda, the expansion is anchored on their commitment to providing quality delivery service to Filipinos—especially during these trying times. The project is also part of the “three C’s” in which their business is rooted on.
FoodPanda aims to provide customers with choices that are delicious, affordable, and can satisfy cravings. They say that what they want is for customers to be able to do their daily tasks without having to worry about what they are going to eat.
FoodPanda wants customers to have an easy time with ordering food or groceries through their platform. In times like this where everyone’s busy and stressed, convenience and efficiency are what we all need.
Customer Perks and Rewards
Not only does FoodPanda want quality service provided to their customers, but rewards for using their service as well. Promo codes, discounts, and vouchers are regularly available on their app and website.
