After 10 years of delivering meals to customers all around Malaysia, foodpanda will commemorate their decade-long service by hosting the panda paradise event at the Open Car Park, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur.
Open only to pandapro subscribers, the event starts from August 12 until August 14, 2022, during which you can take part in various lucky draws and contests to win exclusive prizes.
To keep everyone entertained, they will also be having exclusive performances from artists throughout the three-day event as well.
But before we get into how to join the event, let’s take a look back on what foodpanda’s milestones have been over the past decade.
Celebrating their 10-year service in Malaysia
First launched in Singapore by Lukas Nagel and Rico Wyder in 2012, foodpanda expanded their food delivery services to Malaysia later that year.
From 2012, they maintained a revenue growth between 60% to 70% year over year with the highest at 2017 at 100%.
In 2019, foodpanda upgraded their services to offer grocery deliveries by partnering up with major grocery chains such as Lotus’s, Watsons, and Guardian via shops on the foodpanda app. They launched pandamart the following year, too.
Around the same time, they also introduced their new subscription plan called pandapro. It provides subscribers with monthly vouchers, which include free deliveries and discounts on food and grocery deliveries.
Today, they’ve expanded their delivery coverage area to outside the Klang Valley, servicing Penang, Johor, East Malaysia, and more.
To support their growth, they’ve grown to have more than 300 employees, 30,000 riders, and over 25,000 participating merchants across Malaysia, they report.
