Ride-sharing app Pathao launches food delivery service
Having food from a restaurant at home or the office has become one step easier for Dhakaites, as ride-sharing app Pathao has launched a new venture called “Pathao Food”. Now food lovers can use the new app to order their favourite food from any restaurant within their zone without the hassle of going outside and waiting in the line. “Through this platform, we are not only meeting the culinary cravings of our food-loving users but also we are also creating new ways for our riders to earn more from our platform at the same time,” said CEO of Pathao Hussain M Elius during the launching ceremony of Pathao Food on Tuesday.Users will just have to select their preferred local restaurants and hotels within 2.5km of their location and choose food items from the detailed menu on the App. They can search, locate and place orders from restaurants near them with the tap of a button on the app, and the nearest Pathao Food Courier will place the order for the app users and deliver the food to their door. “Though the service is now available at Gulshan and Banani in the city, it can be availed from all across Dhaka within a month,” said Ahmed Fahad, vice-president (Product) at Pathao. “Initially, some 300 restaurants in Gulshan and Banani  have been synched with the app,” he added “We would love to introduce a new lifestyle to the city dwellers,” Ahmed Fahad further said.
