Ride-hailing service Bolt to launch food delivery service in SA
Ride-hailing service Bolt announced that in a few months the company will be launching its own food delivery service in SA.
To be called Bolt Food, it was first made avilable in Estonia in August 2019, in Lithuania in November 2019, and is planned to launch in South Africa, Latvia, and Finland in the coming months, the company said.
Bolt said that South Africa would be one of the first three countries in which the service will be offered.
“Bolt’s focus on Europe and Africa sets us apart from our competitors, and the success of this strategy is clear, with South Africa now one of our top markets globally,” said Bolt co-founder and chief Markus Villig in a statement.
“South Africa is our largest country market in Africa, and Johannesburg is our largest city of operations in Africa,” he said.
