Already established as a popular ride sharing and the biggest e-commerce delivery service company, this year, Pathao wanted to expand their business by providing more solutions. The logical next step for Hussain M Elius, CEO, and Shifat Adnan, CTO (both co-founders of Pathao) was to launch their own food delivery service, which they did on January 16. The service is called Pathao Food.
With new restaurants and cafes with a variety of cuisines opening every other day in Dhaka, it gets hard for us to keep tracks and visit every single one of them. Moreover, as the traffic situation is getting worse every single day, it gets impossible to go outside just to grab something to eat or even wait in the queue. So the only way out is to make use of these food delivery services. And although there are renowned companies providing the same service, they don’t always cover all the areas or restaurants. And especially when you’re ‘hangry’ and can’t find your favourite restaurant after going through the list, life gets kind of meaningless (if you ask me).

This is where Pathao Food stands out in the lot, having over 300+ restaurants on their platform, in areas such as Gulshan, Banani, Mohakhali and Barishara. Pathao Food is here with the largest collection of restaurants in each location, for their users to enjoy and live their foodie life to the fullest, from within the comfort of their homes or offices.
Foodies can now use the Pathao App to order their favourite food from any restaurant within their region. Users will just have to select their preferred local restaurants and hotels and then choose their favorite food items from the detailed menu on the app. They can search, locate and place orders from the nearby restaurants with a tap from the app and the nearest Pathao food courier will place the orders for the app users and deliver the food to their doors.
“From beating the traffic, to beating your hunger we are always trying to make the life of our app users as comfortable as possible. Through this new platform, we are not only meeting the culinary cravings of our food loving users, but at the same time we are also creating new ways for our riders to earn more on our platform. Pathao Food is a local solution, for local people and local businesses, made in Bangladesh,” said Hussain M Elius, CEO.
At present, they have launched Pathao food in the tri-state area, and hoping to launch it all over Dhaka soon, giving their riders more opportunities to earn some extra cash.
