Bolt Food has announced its expansion into inner cities in Lagos enlarging its coverage in the state and delivering on its promise to continue providing easier access to daily essentials. The leading mobility platform launched its food delivery vertical in Lagos in 2021 which provides customers with competitively affordable and efficient food delivery service while offering good working conditions to food couriers and profit to restaurant partners.
Bolt Food boasts over 1000 restaurants on its platform since its 2021 launch and its continuous expansion drive which attracts top restaurants across Lagos. The initial launch in Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, and Lekki was followed by expansions in 2022 into Lagos Mainland – Yaba and Surulere, followed by expansion to Ilupeju, Gbagada, and Ikeja. Now, customers can also place orders on Bolt Food in the Ajah, Sangotedo, Festac, Satellite Town, Egbeda, Ikotun, Ojodu, and Ogba areas of Lagos.
Speaking on the expansion, Bolt Food Manager, Sola Masha said, “Our goal is to connect every Nigerian to a service that provides effortless and affordable access to daily essentials. Since we launched Bolt Food in Lagos, we have received positive feedback from our users and partners alike. We think it is time to extend this service to everyone who wants to order food from their favourite restaurants and receive it quickly and safely at their homes or offices. This expansion is also part of our commitment to augment earning opportunities for Nigerians who are either couriers or restaurant partners that can benefit from our loyal customer base.”
Users in the new areas can download the Bolt Food application on their smartphones to place an order. Bolt Food has an array of restaurants and available menu options to choose from. The application also provides customers with various price ranges and an estimated delivery time. Payments can be made like the Bolt ride-hailing platform, and customers can specify the location for contactless delivery drop-offs upon order arrival.
Restaurants and couriers can sign up on the website food.bolt.eu. The Bolt Food expansion in Nigeria will help restaurants have a broader reach to customers, with Bolt acting as a reliable platform for affordable delivery and efficient service. Bolt has built its mobility platform efficiently to offer the best service in all the sectors it operates in, including the food delivery space advancing the sector with innovation and technology.
