Launch Of ‘Foodpanda Express’
The initial launch of the service will deliver orders from 12:00pm to 4:00pm, during lunch hours, from the aforementioned restaurants and the meals will be packaged in high grade round plastic containers, eliminating the need for the plating. Speaking about the launch, Saurabh Kochhar, CEO of Foodpanda India, said, “We are excited to be announcing yet another innovative offering for our valued customers through the introduction of Express Meals. The thought behind this originated with the desire to make available pre-set portions of favourite combos within 30 minutes of ordering. We are also cognizant of the fact that most of our corporate users prefer ordering meal combos instead of separate meals. We are doing a pilot run in Gurgaon with 3 restaurants and are confident these curated meals will be enjoyed by our customers and also help us in the conquest of new customer base.”
