Online food ordering service hellofood has announced its app has been selected as one of six apps that will be preinstalled on all Samsung Galaxy S5 devices in Nigeria as part of the Galaxy Gift Package.
Emmanouil Revmatas, Samsung West Africa director, described hellofood as “the fastest way to order food online from your favourite restaurants” and praised the service’s simplicity.
“hellofood has enjoyed tremendous development in Africa to become the most popular food delivery app on the continent and this latest partnership demonstrates the huge consumer demand for high-quality and easy-to-use apps. Having been operational in Nigeria for just under 18 months, hellofood is already working with over 300 restaurants across several cities, including Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt,” hellofood said.
“This latest partnership with Samsung is very exciting for us”, said James Gibson, managing director of hellofood Nigeria. “Being featured within the Galaxy Gift Package will help us to extend our reach to an even wider audience, and we look forward to being able to provide a range of new customers with a convenient and easy way to order food online.”
Earlier this year, the company announced a global deal with Nokia to make the hellofood app available on Nokia smartphones, as well as extensive pre-installation deals with four of the top five network operators in Africa.
