The pandemic and the community quarantines have affected many food businesses and restaurants nationwide. With people being restricted from dining in restaurants, many restaurants have turned into partnering with food delivery services to continue their operations. Fortunately, there are food delivery companies, such as foodpanda, that help vendors keep in touch with their customers.
foodpanda did not only help these entrepreneurs survive the worst of the lockdowns, it even helped them grow amidst the challenges–connecting them with customers, expanding their reach, and allowing them to grow their businesses. For retail shops and food businesses, foodpanda is a reliable business partner that they can depend on through thick and thin.
Leylam Shawarma is a restaurant that sells Turkish-inspired products. Its directors wanted to acquaint Filipinos with Turkish cuisine. Initially, it was difficult to sell the wrap to the Filipinos but eventually, Leylam became a hit when it introduced Leylam Rice. The company tied up with foodpanda back in June 2020, and for a partnership duration of only a little over a year, Leylam now has more than 100 outlets enrolled with foodpanda. Their management mentioned that this partnership with foodpanda really helped their business grow in terms of sales increase and better customer reach, especially in this new normal. Their business’ continuous success gives them hope that they’ll be able to have more outlets in the Philippines. More than this, however, they also said that the best part of this partnership was making customers happy and satisfied, and also helping their people grow with the organization.
Cindy’s Bakery and Restaurant
Cindy’s Bakery and Restaurant, which has been around since 1972, started out as a bakery in Tarlac. It quickly gained popularity for its fluffy breads and buttery pastries. Eventually, Cindy’s grew into a full-service eatery, expanding its menu to include more savory dishes like its bestselling Palabok and Chicken Barbecue. Today, it has 29 outlets on the foodpanda network, and expressed satisfaction at how the partnership provided an opportunity for Cindy’s to reach more untapped markets. This not only led to an increase in customer visits but also led to a 30% average sales growth, which the company hopes will be sustained.
Kanzen Sushi Roll
Kanzen Sushi Roll, which joined foodpanda as one of its pioneer partners, acknowledges how foodpanda has helped it sustain its business and serves as a bridge to unreachable customers. foodpanda has also allowed the company to bring affordable Japanese cuisine to the market.
