Zomato first ventured into food delivery and takeout order processing in May 2015. Over the past few months, Zomato launched its online ordering operations in India (14 cities) and expanded the service to Dubai, Melbourne, and Johannesburg. Its next stop is the Philippines, where it launched its online ordering services in partnership with Quick Delivery.
In a statement, Zomato noted that the Philippines is ripe for the company’s business. With per-capita spends on food at 30% to 35%, “Filipinos seem to have an insatiable appetite, often eating out up to six times in a day – breakfast, brunch, lunch, ‘merienda‘, dinner, and a midnight snack.”
“The delivery market in the Philippines has the potential to be one of the largest in Asia. We believe strongly in the leadership of Quick Delivery and what they’ve built and achieved. Through this partnership, we believe we will create real value and great ordering experiences for our customers in Manila,” said Tanmay Saksena, global business head for online ordering at Zomato.
