Australian food-delivery service Menulog has added more than 2200 convenience and grocery partners as demand surges.
The company says it has experienced 232-per-cent growth since January last year with demand booming in suburban and regional markets as well as metro cities. Independent businesses represent 37 per cent of Menulog’s grocery and convenience partners.
Menulog has signed on IGA supermarkets, BP and Quickstop United Petroleum as new trading partners, with plans to add more in the near future as it continues to expand.
Menulog MD, ANZ, Morten Belling, said Menulog’s point of difference had always been its breadth of coverage across Australia, fully serving metro areas, and with a strong courier and partner network spanning suburban, regional and rural areas.
“We’re seeing exponential demand for convenience and grocery deliveries across all parts of Australia, in part driven by changes in consumer buying habits that started as a result of Covid restrictions,” said Belling.
Customer demand is expected to rise this year and Menulog wants to prioritise its grocery and convenience delivery services even though retail trading restrictions have eased.
