foodpanda, the first online food delivery service in Thailand, continued to expand its offering to its application users. Its latest partner, MK Restaurant Group, the operator of leading restaurants, appointed five brands in its portfolio, namely MK Suki, Yayoi, Hakata, Miyazaki, and Laemcharoen Seafood, to join foodpanda in delivering delicious meals to their customers.
Mr. Alexander Felde, Managing Director at foodpanda (Thailand), said, "For the past eight years, foodpanda has grown continuously. We ceaselessly improve our services and expand our restaurant partners to offer greater variety of food to our app users. Today, consumer behavior in food orders is geared towards variety from both local and chain restaurants. Our partnership with MK Restaurant Group is considered one of foodpanda's milestones in expanding our portfolio of restaurant partners to offer and deliver food from larger restaurant chains at numerous locations nationwide. This partnership will provide more choices to foodpanda customers across the country to select their favorite meals and have them delivered quickly via foodpanda."
Miss Tantawan Thirakomen, Vice President of Coporate Marketing Strategy at MK Restaurant Group said, "Our partnership with foodpanda will help deliver MK's tasty dishes to our customers nationwide.
