Residents of Yaba, Surulere, Ilupeju, Gbagada, Ikeja and other parts of Lagos Mainland can now order food from the comfort of their homes and offices through the leading mobility platform, Bolt Food.

This is because the company has expanded its operations to the areas after initially concentrating on customers in Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, and Lekki.

Bolt Food, which launched in 2021, has provided top-notch services to residents of Lagos Island by delivering daily essentials such as food from over 100 restaurants to their doorsteps.

Those on the mainland of Lagos have asked for similar food delivery services and in response to these requests, the company has decided to expand to the mainland side of the state.

To place an order, users can download the Bolt Food application on their smartphone, with an array of different restaurants and available menu options to choose from.

The application also provides customers with various price ranges and an estimated delivery time. Payments can be paid like the Bolt ride-hailing platform, and customers can specify the location for contactless delivery drop-offs upon order arrival.

“When we launched Bolt Food in 2021, we wanted to help Nigerians order food from their favourite restaurants and receive it quickly and safely at their home or office.

“This expansion is an extension of our commitment to providing easier access to essentials such as food to Nigerians.

“We are looking to expand quickly and ensure that our partner restaurants benefit from our loyal customer base. This is also a way for us to augment the earning opportunities for Nigerians by ensuring that it is worthwhile for couriers on the platform,” Bolt Food Manager, Sola Masha, said.

With over 30 million customers worldwide, Bolt has built its ride-hailing and food service platforms efficiently to offer the best services, positioning the company as a leader in Nigeria’s mobility sector. The company extended its expertise to food delivery to advance the sector with innovation and technology.

Bolt Food was first launched in Estonia in August 2019. The service is also available in South Africa, Ghana and Kenya.

Restaurants and couriers can sign up on the website food.bolt.eu. The expansion of Bolt Food in Nigeria will help restaurants have a broader reach to customers, with Bolt acting as a reliable platform for affordable delivery and efficient service.
