Wadi.com has announced that the Wadi Grocery app is promising a 2-hour delivery from order to your doorstep. “With a customer base of 15 million+ of Wadi.com, the grocery app was launched earlier this year in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. The app today boasts more than 2000 + daily orders from more than 20,000+ products catalogue that include fresh produce, dairy products, personal care brands, household supplies, kitchen essentials, and so on,” the company said in a statement today.
Speaking on the recent success, Pratik Gupta, Co-founder and MD commented, “By virtue of working in KSA for the past 3 years, we realized that the retail climate poses some unique challenges for the end consumer. From limited stocks, traffic jams, parking issues, the hot weather, consumers face a host of issues when they step out for their daily/weekly groceries. We recognized the need gap in the market and decided to introduce the Wadi Grocery App to ensure that our customers get everything delivered at their doorstep within two hours.”
He further added, “We received an overwhelming response from our existing 15 million + Wadi customers which enabled us to swiftly expand to top three cities of the Kingdom. Our excellent logistics network across 50+ cities and world-class technology helped us scale quickly and deliver on our promise of 2 hour delivery along with the widest range of assortment for the region. As a result, 50% of the orders being generated on the app are only via organic word of mouth. This kind of tremendous growth makes us confident about our future plans.”
Following the success of the grocery app within the KSA region, Wadi.com plans to expand in other markets like UAE, which is strategized to be introduced in early 2019.
