Courier service provider Glovo is making a major splash in Kenya, with a remarkable 52% increase in partners on its app and a 24% surge in total orders delivered compared to last year.
This impressive growth is driven by a thriving community of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that make up 75% of Glovo’s partner network.
“We’re thrilled to see such enthusiastic adoption of our platform by Kenyan businesses and consumers,” said Ivy Maingi, Interim General Manager of Glovo Kenya.
This growth is a testament to our commitment to providing a seamless and convenient experience for everyone involved in the quick commerce ecosystem.
Glovo’s dedication to empowering local businesses is evident in its partnership with Bargains grocery stores, which have witnessed a staggering 150% increase in grocery orders in 2023.
This partnership has undoubtedly contributed to the overall 44.9% growth in grocery orders on the Glovo platform.
Beyond groceries, multi-category orders have also seen a significant rise of 51%, with pharmacy orders leading the charge with a 44% increase. The top products ordered from pharmacies include contraceptive pills, HIV tests, and pregnancy tests.
When it comes to food preferences, Kenyans have a clear favorite: fried chicken. Burgers and pizza are also popular choices, with American and Italian cuisines dominating the top spots.
Glovo Kenya is undoubtedly at the forefront of shaping the future of the quick commerce industry in the region.
With its continued commitment to innovation and growth, Glovo is poised to become an indispensable part of the lives of Kenyans.
