Global same-day food delivery company Delivery Hero has expanded its Asian foodpanda brand into Japan.
Hot food is core to foodpanda operations, but the company will also offer convenience store products that include groceries delivered to customers’ doorsteps. The company is beginning operations in six cities – Kobe, Yokohama, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima.
Niklas Ostberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Delivery Hero, said: “By entering the Japanese market, we reinforce our commitment to strengthening our position in Asia. Following the successful launches in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar at the end of 2019, we are now excited to bring a delivery service that is focused on choice, speed, safety and convenience to Japan. The Japanese market offers a lot of potential for future growth, and we are looking forward to bringing amazing experiences to our new customers.”
Eric Wei, CEO of foodpanda Japan, said: “We are extremely excited to launch in Japan. This is a market we have long admired, and the expansion is an important step in making food and grocery delivery accessible to everyone in Asia, offering greater choice, speed and convenience to local consumers and business partners.”
