Jumia Food, and KFC have on Wednesday extended their partnership that will now enable customers in Entebbe to also be able to order online for the KFC meals and have them delivered to them.
Jumia Food Uganda Country Manager Timothy Mugume said the expansion of their partnership with KFC to Entebbe is not only a implication of how well they have both served their customers in Kampala but also their desire to make sure that all their customers enjoy the best convenience service in the country.
Expressing his optimism about the expected success of the partnership, KFC’s Operations Director Jacques Theunissen in a press statement said brands that cater to convenience now need to re-invent their service delivery to cater to consumers’ dynamic needs.
Mugume further stated that this strategy, is part of an expansion move by the company aimed at bettering customer experience through new and exciting innovations to make food ordering faster and more convenient, in this case extending delivery to Entebbe and also increasing the delivery radius for all KFC branches.
The partnership and expansion comes at the time when Zawadi Eats another food delivery company is set to launch in Kampala soon. The competition will then be tighter considering the fact that already existing firms like Jumia Food and Simba Foods have been in the market for a while.
With the recent upgrade on both its android and iOS Apps, Jumia Food guarantees a quick and convenient online food ordering process, for all KFC orders and its other partners. Its customers can pay by cash on delivery, MTN Mobile Money as well as Card Payments (Visa/Mastercard).
