Daily, the new online initiative by Talabat, ensures grocery goods are delivered to doorsteps in just 15 minutes
Talabat, the largest food delivery service in the Middle East, is set to disrupt the grocery business model with the launch of the first dark store in the region.
Daily, the new online initiative by Kuwait-based Talabat, ensures grocery goods are delivered to the customers’ doorsteps in just 15 minutes.
Daily by Talabat stands out for its lowest time to deliver goods and its affordable price point, the company said in a statement.
It added that Daily combines the convenience of a local shop with the price point and variety of a supermarket with deliveries within 15 minutes.
Customers can access Daily through the Talabat App, available on the Apple Store or Google Play.
The company said Daily has been launched to address customers’ needs for a fast service that delivers everyday goods.
Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO of Talabat, said: “When online food delivery was unheard of in the region, Talabat brought a new way of food ordering that has now become the industry norm. Today, with Daily, we are once again revolutionising a business sector that holds tremendous potential.
"We couldn’t think of a better place to launch the region’s first dark store than Kuwait, our birthplace and one of the most dynamic markets in the region. Kuwait is a place where new ideas can come to life and thrive. This is why we want our Kuwaiti customers to be the first to experience Daily. We are looking to roll out Daily across all markets in the next several months.
"We’ve been listening to our customers and based on their feedback and to meet their lifestyle aspirations, we have launched this new service. With Daily by Talabat, customers can order grocery goods conveniently, at supermarket prices, and find more time to enjoy the moments that matter.”
Announcing plans to expand the service across the GCC, Rodriguez added: “With Daily, we’re delivering all our user’s daily needs, from fruit to detergent to ice cream and more. We have a big offering that ranges from quick snacks to fresh produce to healthy foods – everything that a family needs.”
Since launch, the most ordered goods on Daily include water, soft drinks, and ice cream, as well as non-food items such as tissues and laundry detergent. Customers order most during the night and over weekends.transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
