foodora, for the uninitiated, is an on-demand food delivery service that already operates in 65 cities across the globe, and now, Calgary can count itself among them.
The food delivery service is already among the top delivery services in Canadian cities including Toronto, Montreal, and most recently Vancouver, and as of today its available in Edmonton and Calgary too.
“foodora has been working hard over the past few years to provide fast and fresh delivery to Canadians and we are excited to expand our service even further into Calgary and Edmonton,” says David Albert, Managing Director, foodora Canada in a press release. “We look forward to bringing even more restaurants on the platform in the coming weeks and providing users with convenient access to popular food spots and world-class delivery.”
While the plan is to deliver food from over 50 curated restaurant partners in each city, for now Calgarians can order from Po-ke, Meat & Bread, Freshii, and Würst, and to celebrate its launch, the company is offering free delivery on all foodora orders for the first few months of operations.
Endearing itself to locals further and celebrating the company’s expansion into western Canada, the company is also offering $1 menu items on Friday, October 6 (limit of two special items per order).
In Calgary, the $1 deal is available on Po-ke Special Dog (Japanese style hot dog) from Po-ke.
Delivery zones in Calgary, extend North to 27th Avenue, East to Deerfoot Trail, West to Crowchild Trail and South to 26th Avenue. Customers need just download the app or visit the foodora website to place an order.
