Spanish start-up Glovo has announced it is expanding its footprint in Kenya. People in Kitengela and Nakuru can now use the app to buy, collect, and send any product they want to. Founded in Barcelona in 2015, Glovo operates as on-demand courier service.
In an official release, the company says they already have wide coverage in Nairobi among on-demand eCommerce companies. They say that they will capitalize on their existing partnerships with outlets such as Artcaffe, Chicken Inn and Naivas in Kitengela; and Java House and Naivas in Nakuru.
Speaking during the launch, William Benthall, the Glovo General Manager for Kenya said that the move will see the company provide convenience to customers, increased orders for partners and income for the youth in Kitengela & Nakuru through bodaboda delivery.
“This move is part of Glovo’s strategic expansion in Kenya. Our long term aim is to have a presence in all towns in the country. We are committed to helping our partners to amplify their businesses and increase sales, and providing quality service delivery to all our customers at an affordable price. This expansion will ensure that many more people experience the convenience that Glovo brings to their lives,” said Mr. Benthall.
