Australian food delivery service Menulog expands and convenience partner listings to over 2200 as consumer demand surges.
According to the company, Menulog continues to grow its grocery and convenience service across all corners of Australia, experiencing 232 per cent partner growth since January 2021.
Amid surging consumer demand, with annual Menulog order growth in this category “rising by 100%,” trading partners are seeking to leverage Menulog’s established networks and nationwide presence.
Menulog has welcomed major trading partners including BP (over 270 stores), IGA Supermarkets (over 130 stores) and Quickstop United Petroleum (over 190 stores), and anticipates additional locations from these partners will be added in coming months.
“Independent businesses represent 37% of Menulog’s grocery and convenience partners to-date. Thirty-five per cent are also based in regional Australia, a key differentiator from other market players solely focused on inner city suburbs.”
Menulog Managing Director ANZ Morten Belling says: “On-demand delivery of groceries and convenience items is a growing market sector, one in which we are well-established and continuing to boost our offering. Menulog’s point of difference has always been our breadth across Australia, fully servicing metro areas, and with a strong courier and partner network spanning suburban, regional and rural areas.
“We’re seeing exponential demand for convenience and grocery deliveries across all parts of Australia, in part driven by changes in consumer buying habits that started as a result of Covid restrictions. Even though there are very few retail restrictions in play right now, consumers continue to embrace our platform for convenience items as they’re needed and craved, whether that’s fresh fruit and vegetables or pantry essentials. We’re delighted to make it even easier for Australians to support their local, independent supermarkets and convenience stores.”
Grocery and convenience will continue to be a priority for Menulog in 2022, with ambitions for further growth within its partner and delivery networks, as consumer demand is expected to continue rising.
