Ola-owned food delivery service Foodpanda has launched services in 13 new cities including Visakhapatnam, Mysore, Coimbatore, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Kanpur, Guwahati, among others. With the recent foray, FoodPanda is now active in 20 cities across the country.

Over 3,000 restaurant partners have been on boarded to the platform in these 13 cities over the past weeks alongside 5,000 Delivery Partners. Foodpanda aims to grow the number of Delivery Partners to 20,000 in the next 6 months across these cities.

“We are thrilled to expand Foodpanda’s delivery network to 20 cities across the country. We are in the midst of a fast-paced nationwide expansion with an ambition to serve a billion Indians. We are confident that our cutting-edge technology and unique local insights will make Foodpanda, India’s largest and most preferred food experience platform,” Pranay Jivrajka, CEO at Foodpanda India said in a statement.

This comes after Foodpanda recently announced its intent to on board an additional 60,000 Delivery Partners on to its network by the end of October. Tens of thousands of Delivery Partners have already been on boarded over the past month with Foodpanda expecting to achieve this target well ahead of time.

 “Foodpanda is also learning from Ola’s extensive experience of building hyperlocal solutions to solve for unique local challenges. Being a part of the Ola platform, Foodpanda will explore opportunities to synergise its services and efforts of delivering superior food experiences to cater to a wider pool of customers across these cities,” Pranay added.

Cab aggregator acquired FoodPanda’s India operations in December 2017 for roughly $40 million, giving it entry into the fast-growing foodtech space in India and take on incumbents such as Swiggy and Zomato.  Ola at the time also announced that it will invest $200 million in Foodpanda India.

FoodPanda was also recently integrated into the Ola app to be able to reach an additional customer base on 150 million. It also claimed that it achieved a milestone of 3 lakh orders a day on the back of several recently introduced offers.
