After successful launches in Morocco, Kenya and Cote d’Ivoire, Glovo, a Spanish multi-category delivery service has launched its operations in Ghana.
The multi-category delivery start-up entered Africa in 2018 and is currently present in four countries on the continent.
The expansion into Ghana makes it the second market in West Africa and the fifth African country where the firm has established operations.
The on-demand platform is aimed at making lives of Ghanaians easier by providing access to convenient delivery services.
Speaking at the launch in Accra, the General Manager of Glovo Ghana, Pearlyn Budu, disclosed that through the Glovo app, users can simply log on and order food, groceries and drinks.
She added that users can also send a courier to pick up what they need explaining that, the app has a special feature known as the “anything” category which allows consumers to order whatever they want from restaurants, grocery chains, pharmacies and retail store.
“We are exited about launching in Ghana. We are bringing a brand new service to Accra, which will make convenience a few clicks away. At this time, when it is essential for us to stay at home where necessary, our service will be a great way to get all the things you need without leaving your home or office”. Madam Pearlyn Budu stated.
According to her, the service will be a huge asset to business owners especially in Accra where traffic is a huge challenge.
“We have brought convenience and affordability to all residents in Accra. There is also a large segment of the population using apps to move around or order goods for delivery. Glovo provides a new opportunity to introduce new service with low prices and amazing user experience”. She added.
Glovo is a pioneering multi-category delivery app with a vision to give Ghanaians easy access to everything in the city. Founded in Barcelona in 2015, it operates in over 750 cities across 21 countries. The app connects users with restaurants, grocery chains, pharmacies and retail stores.
