Online food ordering and delivery platform Foodpanda India is planning to hire 60,000 delivery riders in the next two months to ensure seamless delivery experience.
In order to increase its order volume, the company has also launched a slew of discounts and offers across desserts, snacks and biryani. The delivery firm expects that the discount campaign will boost its order volume by over 10 times.
Pranay Jivrajka, CEO of Foodpanda India, said, “We understand that there is a constant need to scale up logistics to meet the growing needs of the business and to address that, we will be hiring 60,000 riders in a short span of 2 months. We also aim to establish strategic and long-term relationships with our partner restaurants and constantly add more restaurants to the platform.”
Earlier, Foodpanda, which was acquired by ride-hailing firm Ola in December 2017, was looking to add 25,000 delivery executives by mid-2019. But, it decided to advance and scale its resource sourcing and allocation given the steep demand in the market.
