Hellofood is Expanding to Mombasa

Untitled5

Hellofood, the city’s leading online food delivery company is now expanding its services to Mombasa County.

Since it first launched in Nairobi 2 years ago, hellofood has provided Nairobi residents with access to the most popular restaurants in the city using an online platform that is accessible through a desktop or mobile app. Using these channels, customers can find great restaurants for the purpose of food delivery. The convenience of this service has been beneficial to those working long hours at the office, those seeking healthier options to order for the family and generally anyone looking for a great meal at a specific time of the night or day.

And now, hellofood is in the process of setting up their offices in Mombasa. This service is not only beneficial for customers but it’s also a great opportunity for restaurant owners to acquire a new avenue to generate business growth.

Speaking with hellofood’s city manager for Hellofood Mombasa Anthony Gitobu, this is what he had to say about the new expansion; “Mombasa hubs a plethora of opportunities for food delivery; first of all, the city is known for its diverse, rich coastal cuisine that is served by great restaurants and is enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. Secondly, although it is popularly known for its laid-back atmosphere, there are some people who might not enjoy moving around in the heat in search of a good meal. We are therefore very excited to set up our service in Mombasa County, where we can provide the same convenience that is enjoyed in Nairobi; we are confident that we’ll receive a positive outcome not only from residents, but it’s also a great opportunity for restaurant owners to market their restaurants as well” Anthony concluded.

In Nairobi, hellofood has managed to partner with over 120+ restaurants and the number is set to grow once restaurants sign on to the site in Mombasa. The hellofood site and mobile app displays how many restaurants can deliver to the customer once they indicate what area they’re in. After the food is selected by the customer, hellofood works with the restaurant to ensure that the meal is received to their specified area. This technology enables someone with no knowledge of the city to go through a wide range of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisines while at the same time exposing the restaurants to potential customers who wouldn’t know they exist.
