Glovo, one of the world’s leading multi-category delivery platforms, is expanding its operations in Africa, to include Ghana and Tunisia, bringing its current operations to a total of seven countries on the continent.
Following the expansion, an estimated 6.5 million more people will be able to access Glovo’s app, as the company continues its mission to make everything, within all towns and cities, available to everyone.
Glovo’s investment in the region to date is worth a combined total of $30million and the company expects to invest an additional $60m over the next 12 months to further accelerate expansion.
The company believes there are a number of key markets in Africa that are currently underserved and recognizes the unique opportunity for the platform within local communities by supporting independent businesses and helping them reach new customers online.
The Glovo app is already available in Morocco, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria, offering its services to more than 40 cities, over 300,000 users, 8,000 restaurants and 12,000 couriers.
