Foodpanda and the global convenience store chain 7-Eleven have formed a partnership, which will see 2,500 7-Eleven stores across Southeast Asia added to the delivery firm’s app.
A partnership that underscores Foodpanda’s dual focus
The delivery service will be rolled out in four countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines. An average of 1,000 SKUs will be shoppable from the app with delivery times averaging 20 minutes. The agreement follows a six-month trial which saw orders via the Foodpanda app grew by 50% month-on-month.
The partnership is also said to underscore Foodpanda’s dual focus on growing its core food delivery business as well as its quick-commerce offerings. According to Foodpanda, quick-commerce represents the next generation of ecommerce, where consumers can purchase their necessities on-demand, to be delivered within half hour.
