Bolt, formerly known as Taxify has announced its plan to launch a food delivery service in South Africa. This launch will make South Africa one of the three countries worldwide to kick off the service. The other countries are Estonia, which is home to the company and Finland.
CEO/Co-founder Bolt, Markus Villig has said that Bolt is built on ‘best price offering’ for its passengers and great commissions for its ‘drivers’. He said these offerings contributed immensely to their fast growth than other ride-hailing platforms.
“Now we want to bring this approach to food delivery. Combined with our technology, efficient operations and thousands of drivers in South Africa, we plan to build the best food delivery service for the people who already use our services daily,” he said.
Bolt has a bigger presence in South Africa than other ride-hailing platforms and they hope to leverage on this development to grant South Africans access to a convenient and cost- efficient app-based food delivery service.
Bolt re-branded recently with a change of name with aims to bring the brand identity in line with the company’s broader vision of transportation. Bolt’s services include ride-hailing, with cars and motorbikes, as well as scooter sharing.
