Local delivery platform Delivery Hero has launched its delivery app in Berlin under the brand foodpanda. After testing the service and scaling it up gradually, Delivery Hero’s subsidiaries in Germany (foodpanda and pandamarkets) are now covering four districts of the German capital with both food delivery and quick commerce (through partnerships with local stores as well as Delivery Hero-owned warehouses called pandamarkets).
Niklas Östberg, CEO and co-founder of Delivery Hero, said, “After testing the foodpanda app for a few weeks, we are confident to deliver on our promise to introduce a superior service to the German market, bringing food delivery and quick commerce to local customers through one single app. Our Berlin employees now have the chance to get closer to the very products they are building and experience our services together with our first customers. We look forward to entering more German cities soon to bring customers an amazing experience and work together with local shops and restaurants.”
Through the foodpanda app, local customers in Berlin now have access to a one-stop shop that covers daily needs – from traditional restaurant food to quick commerce items such as groceries and household products.
“We are thrilled to have entered partnerships with strong local vendors and restaurants, and are well on our way to hire 500 people across all functions, in addition to pickers for pandamarkets and riders for pandalogistics. Backed by solid logistical and technological innovation, we now feel ready to roll out our services in other German cities very soon, and look forward to seeing pandalogistics riders hit the streets of Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich,” concluded Artur Schreiber, CEO of foodpanda Germany.
