Bolt has officially launched its food delivery service, Bolt Food, in Nairobi, Kenya.
Bolt Food will give users access to a huge variety of restaurants and menus at the tap of a button as well as boost the customer base for various restaurants. The company has thus far over-boarded 200 restaurants on the platform, among them; KFC, Big Square, Pizza Mojo, Urban Gourmet Burger, Debonairs Pizza, Steers Ohcha Noodle Bar, The Chef House, Wings Kenya Alchemist, Shokudo Japanese, Barista & Co, Mercado, Awash Ethiopian restaurant, Charlie’s Bistro and Bao Box, among others, with plans to add new restaurants to the app daily.
To order food, the users need to download the Bolt Food application to their smartphone. One can then pick a restaurant in the app, see its menu and select the foods they wish. Before confirming the order, you will see the cost of your shopping basket and the approximate delivery time. You can then select your preferred means of payment and a receipt will be sent to your email address.
Kenya becomes the third country in Africa where Bolt food is currently available, after a successful launch in South Africa and Ghana.
Bolt will facilitate couriers with the necessary training on how the service works, operating the service and communication with the restaurants. The couriers will strictly adhere to all the requirements set forth by the National Food Safety and Coordination Committee – the institution responsible for health and food safety in the country. Currently, the delivery service is available in Parklands, Westlands, Highridge, Spring Valley, Kitisuru, Lavington, South C, South B, Kilimani, Upperhill and Valley Arcade.
