Spanish delivery firm Glovo, in a bid to expand its geographical reach within Kenya, has officially launched its service in Kenya’s second city, Mombasa.
The move will now see residents of Mombasa experience faster on-demand deliveries on categories such as food, groceries, drinks and courier services from different outlets within the town. Glovo already has partnerships with outlets such as Chicken Inn, Java House and Naivas supermarkets which operate in Mombasa.
Speaking during the official launch of the new city, William Benthall, Glovo’s General Manager for Kenya, expressed his optimism towards the new venture. “Our expansion to Mombasa was informed by our wider goal to have a presence in all the towns in the country,” said Mr. Benthall.
“We are continually onboarding more partners so as to serve our customers better and offer the best delivery services in the country,” he added.
Mombasa becomes the third major urban center where Glovo has established its services, after launching its service in Nairobi, Kitengela and Nakuru with plans to launch in other towns in the country.
