Foodpanda now covers all of Laos as first food delivery platform in the country

Food and grocery delivery company Foodpanda has announced a nationwide coverage in Laos, a landlocked nation of about 7.3 million people in Southeast Asia, calling it a “milestone” of becoming “the first and only operator” to offer food delivery services in all 18 provinces across Laos.

Foodpanda, which focuses mainly on emerging and developing countries in Asia and Eastern Europe, but also has a presence in Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, launched its services Laos in 2019. The company has since grown to a substantial number of restaurants and retail partners there, which are benefiting from additional earning opportunities via the Foodpanda platform, as do the riders.

“As a pioneer in the food delivery business in Laos, we have witnessed the tremendous growth of the food delivery industry over the past two years,” Thanyalat Chalernsouk, managing director and co-founder of Foodpanda in Laos, said, according to Vientiane Times.

Thousands of riders earning income

“We have seen thousands of businesses grow and thousands of riders earning a living via the Foodpanda platform and today, we are very proud to provide these opportunities to many thousands of vendors and riders across Laos with our nationwide coverage of all 18 provinces,” he added.

In addition to online food deliveries, which Foodpanda has been offering in Laos, in August 2021, the company eventually introduced Pandamart, which offers groceries and daily essentials within 25 minutes, with plans to expand to the country’s major provinces in the following years.

The number of restaurants within Foodpanda’s network in Laos has increased to more than 10,000, allowing local eateries to have access to the digital economy and grow with the industry, the company said, adding that orders have grown by ten times this year and this means more income for the riders as well.
