Grab eyes greater expansion to more cities in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: Grab is eyeing further opportunities to introduce its other services such as GrabExpress and GrabMart to more cities.

"This in turn will further increase business and income opportunities for all across the country,” the company said in a statement.

The company's food delivery service, GrabFood, recently concluded its second round of expansion exercise in Malaysia, serving millions of foodies across 19 more new cities and major townships while creating more income opportunities for delivery partners and restaurant-partners alike.

Previously, the service was only available in selected areas in the Klang Valley, Penang, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.

The expansion now sees GrabFood reaching food enthusiasts in Kajang, Bangi, Sungai Buloh, Rawang, Ipoh, Taiping, Seremban, Nilai, Kuantan, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Miri, Bintulu, Batu Pahat, Muar, Alor Setar, Sungai Petani, Seberang Perai and Langkawi.

Grab Malaysia country head Sean Goh said in 2019 alone the company secured a four-fold average increase in sales by restaurant partners on GrabFood.

"Through our platform, smaller food restaurants, especially in the outer-city areas are now able to accelerate their businesses.

"With the introduction of GrabFood in these new cities, we hope to help even more restaurants nationwide, while giving our customers convenient access to their local and international favourites,” he added. - Bernama
