On-demand delivery platform, Glovo, has extended its operations to Tema as part of the company’s strategy to better serve customers across all major cities.
Tema, located 25 kilometres (16 miles) east of Accra, the capital of the Tema Metropolitan Assembly, is the second city to experience the easy-to-use multi-category app.
Commenting on the expansion, the General Manager of Glovo Ghana, Ms Pearlyn Budu, said in a release issued in Accra at the weekend that the expansion would enable Tema residents to experience Glovo’s world-class delivery service.
“Since our operations in March, we have had one of the largest delivery operations covering Adentan, Weija, Osu, East Legon, Ashaley Botwe, Osu, Cantonments, Achimota, Dansoman, Spintex, Labone, Airport, Dzorwulu, and many more. We have received great feedback from customers and vendors. Also, we have on board top vendors such as Papa's Pizza, Starbites, Cheezzy Pizza, Eddy's Pizza on the app for our customers in Tema to enjoy,” she said.
According to her, “Glovo users are exposed to different categories they can choose from such as restaurants, supermarket, drinks, package delivery, and anything. The ‘Anything’ category is our most unique category as it allows users to run errands from the comfort of their location.”
“Users can also leave notes or a list of the items that they need and our Glovers will deliver. In some locations, we also have the ‘Shops & Gifts’ category which allows users to shop directly from various stores. We are elated to be in Tema, as inhabitants of the big city will be able to enjoy our world-class delivery services”, she added.
Ms Budu further noted that Glovo planned to invest in further expanding its footprint in Ghana.
“We are very excited to announce our presence in Tema in addition to Accra within the short period of operations in Ghana. We are committed to connecting more Ghanaians to an ever-expanding portfolio of outlets on the multi-category app,” she stated.
