HAØ NOÄI — The Viet­namese de­liv­ery mar­ket, es­pe­cially food, is at a year long high with many new busi­nesses and ser­vices prof­it­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to mar­ket re­search firm Euromon­i­tor, the sec­tor has grown around 15 per cent per year in Asia. In Vieät Nam, the food de­liv­ery mar­ket is cur­rently val­ued at US$33 mil­lion and may ex­ceed $38 mil­lion by 2020.

The per­cent­age of users of food de­liv­ery ser­vices has also in­creased rapidly, al­though it is lim­ited to ur­ban ar­eas where a large num­ber of of­fice work­ers are em­ployed .

Ac­cord­ing to statis­tics from the As­so­ci­a­tion of Viet­namese Re­tail­ers, only 30 per cent of ur­ban res­i­dents used food de­liv­ery ser­vices in Haø Noäi and HCM City last year, but this num­ber has risen to more than 70 per cent in the first six months of this year.

Nguyeãn Maïnh Huøng, man­ager of Cow­boy Jack’s Taây Sôn restau­rant, told the restau­rant was us­ing Now (then De­liv­ery Now) and Lala de­liv­ery ser­vices.

“These ap­pli­ca­tions help our restau­rant find more cus­tomers so that we can sell more food,” said Huøng.

These kinds of apps not only ben­e­fit large restau­rants but also small or street food es­tab­lish­ments.

The owner of restau­rant at 206 Khaâm Thieân Street, told the

(Saøi Goøn Eco­nomic Times On­line), the restau­rant reg­is­tered the ser­vice via the GradFood app. As a re­sult, the restau­rant had to re­cruit more staff but sales and cus­tomers in­creased.

The on­line news­pa­per quoted Jerry Lim, di­rec­tor of Grab Vieät Nam, as say­ing the num­ber of cus­tomers and stores par­tic­i­pat­ing in the GrabFood has in­creased.

On­line food de­liv­ery in Vieät Nam has been op­er­at­ing for sev­eral years through Viet­nammm.com, and GrabFood.

The Now app has the widest cov­er­age in the coun­try na­tion­wide in­clud­ing Haø Noäi, HCM City, Nha Trang, Ñaø Naüng, Hueá, Quaûng Ninh, Caàn Thô, Haûi Phoøng, Ñoàng Nai, Ngheä An and Bình Döông.

Mean­while, Grab has the ad­van­tage of be­ing a tech­nol­ogy plat­form start­ing with car and mo­tor­bike book­ing ser­vices, which have a reg­u­lar cus­tomer of 20 per cent of the Viet­namese pop­u­la­tion.

Grab launched GrabFood along with many pro­grammes con- rep­re­sen­ta­tive told

it had co-op­er­ated with hun­dreds of thou­sands of food partners na­tion­wide from street food, fast food chains to large restau­rants.

The ser­vice would be im­ple­mented na­tion­wide af­ter be­ing pi­loted in HCM City, said the rep­re­sen­ta­tive. — VNS
