LetaFood, Swahili for bring food is set to be the first online food ordering and delivery service based in Eldoret in Rift Valley, Kenya and is targeting to sign up over 500 hotels then expand to its second town Nakuru.
LetaFood aims to deliver food to over 10000 customers before the year-end and its team is also working hard to expand to other cities like Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa and taking the battle to the big giants like Jumia food and Yum.
“We are a startup based in Eldoret and are focused on Edoret now,” said Apps:Lab Team led by Marvin Collins, Evans Wanguba, Emmanuel Magak and Gloria Jemutai.
LetaFood has not explained if it has its own fleet but it certainly will need to work with courier firms as logistics partners before it buys its own fleet of motorcycles if it has to. Food ordering and delivery is picking up in Kenya, with the increasing rate of urbanization and the internet penetration.
