GLOVO CONTINUES ON EXPANSION PLAN IN EAST AFRICA

By Mary Kibe

Glovo, the on-demand delivery company,

announced its operations will extend to the

towns of Eldoret and Kisumu this month. This

move is part of Glovo’s strategic expansion in

Kenya, with the company intending to have a

presence in all major towns in the country.

In November, residents in Kisumu and Eldoret

will be able to enjoy free delivery for top

partners KFC, Java and Naivas as part of

Glovo’s launch campaign in these markets. The

expansion in Kenya follows Glovo’s launch in

Uganda in October. Following operations in

Kampala, the delivery platform has now

expanded its footprint across Africa, with

Uganda the second country in East Africa and

the fifth country in Africa for the firm.

Priscilla Muhiu, the General Manager for Glovo

Kenya, said: “We are very excited about the

launches in Eldoret and Kisumu, which

represents a key part of plan, to bring our world-

class delivery service to as many potential

users as possible.”

The expansion in Eldoret and Kisumu shows

Glovo’s intent to link its customers to an ever-

expanding portfolio of outlets.

Glovo has partnered with Carrefour

Supermarkets in a month-long campaign

dubbed Black Friday to offer their customers

heavily discounted offers over the weekends in

November, in a move targeted at extending its

services to Carrefour customers and also new

clientele.

Glovo is an on-demand delivery platform that

allows you to buy, collect, and send any product

or item within your city. Born in Barcelona, the

company operates in over 650 cities in 23 countries across

EEMEA, LATAM, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Glovo has more than

2.5 million monthly active users, 50,000 active couriers,

and over 50,000 associated partners worldwide.
