Delivery Hero SE expands its influence in Asia
Delivery Hero SE, the global local delivery platform, is launching operations in Japan.
Delivery Hero’s regional brand foodpanda will roll-out its service to six inaugural cities – Kobe, Yokohama, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima – with plans to keep expanding its footprint in Japan continuously. Beyond ordering food, foodpanda will also launch quick commerce locally, where customers will be able to get household products, including groceries, delivered to their doorstep within record speed.
Niklas Östberg, 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.”
