The ride-hailing app Grab has launched its food delivery service, GrabFood, in Bali, just as the clouds have come rolling in for rainy season.
Much like Go-Food, the similar food delivery service of the app, Go-Jek, GrabFood allows you to pick nearly any restaurant or warung you want and order delivery from it for a small fee.
Because not all places have delivery services or sometimes you just want to order something from a place where you’re outside of their designated delivery zone, these food-ordering apps are everything to us.
While we’re big fans of Go-Food ourselves, since it popped up in Bali two years ago, it’s not always easy finding a driver at times, so GrabFood’s entry into the market will certainly provide a nice cushion when we’re desperate with the midnight munchies.
Before its announcement yesterday that GrabFood has come to Bali, GrabFood hit Indonesia first in Jakarta last year.
Grab started in Malaysia but has quickly spread throughout the region, with notable success in Jakarta, its first Indonesian city.
Grab launched its motorbike taxi service GrabBike in Bali in Oct. 2016.
Worth noting, as they just launched, GrabFood is running a promo in Bali for a IDR10,000 (US$0.74) discount for new users with the code “MAKANENAK.”
Payments are currently only accepted in cash.
At this rate, perhaps UberEATS will be the next delivery service to hit the Bali market?
