Glovo , one of the world’s leading multi-category delivery players, has expanded its operations to Thika and Kiambu towns.
The move will now see residents of Thika and Kiambu town enjoy and experience faster on-demand delivery services from different outlets within their towns. Glovo already has partnerships with outlets such as KFC, Chicken Inn, Pizza Inn, Creamy Inn, and Naivas in Thika, and Chicken Inn, Pizza Inn, and Creamy Inn in Kiambu.
Glovo further says it plans to onboard additional niche outlets in those two towns to cater to its diverse range of customers.
Making the announcement, Glovo said the expansion comes at the back of the 58 billion Kenya shillings funding raised in April 2021 in its Series F funding round led by New York-based investment managers Lugard Road Capital and the Luxor Capital Group.
Priscilla Muhiu, Glovo’s General Manager for Kenya said, “Our expansion to Thika and Kiambu towns is part of Glovo’s strategic expansion in Kenya, we are excited to tap into the potential of those two towns.”
Thika and Kiambu towns are urban centers and join the likes of Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu, Rongai, Ngong, and Kitengela where Glovo has established its services in the country.
