Food app dubbed Moreki was launched on Thursday in Gaborone. The app allows customers all over Gaborone to order food from their favourite restaurants and have it delivered at whatever place they might be. The launch took place at Gaborone Indiana Spur which is one of the partners in the business. Thuto Molapo of Moreki said the food delivery apps have become extremely popular in recent years and hence they jumped at the opportunity to connect the local restaurants with the diners. She said that the ordering application consists of web application, Facebook application and mobile application where all their partner restaurants can be able to receive orders from anywhere. “We are dedicated to helping restaurants add delivery to their operation by offering our teams of delivery partners who are ready to execute on error free delivery,” she said. According to Molapo, they will be using the point to point delivery model because they have enough density of delivery partners who will use the tracking information to evaluate which are closest to a given pick up point. She said they will be offering these services at a reasonable prize with customers paying either online or on delivery.
Their restaurant partners are Indian Spurs Airport Junction, Koko Ya Setswana, Saffron, Abyssinia and the China Restaurant. She believes that in the next three months many Batswana will be able to use the service and at the moment they are also working on Moreki carrier which will be for small package deliveries in Gaborone for documents, laundry pick-up and drop-off, flowers and even medicinal items. Indiana Spur Manager Tony Naicker said they are very excited about their partnership with Moreki because their customers will have the liberty to order their favourite meals anywhere they are. He said a lot went into cementing the partnership having benchmarked in South Africa. “We are very excited about this and we want to have the same arrangement for our Spur in Francistown and not only this one,” he said. Koko ya Setswana’s Felistus Senwamadi said this is a good platform for them, especially because they do not have a walk in restaurant but prepare meals on order.
