POKHARA: The online food delivery service Foodmandu has expanded its business in Pokhara as well. It is the first expansion of the service outside Kathmandu Valley.

Marketing manager Shyam Ratna Mali shared at a press conference that the online food delivery service was brought to Pokhara in view of the growing need of customers. "We have come here with quality service. Now, people in Pokhara can order food online and relish it at home," he said.

For the expansion of the business, Foodmandu has established collaboration with more than 30 local restaurants and hotels, which Mali said, would increase gradually. Similarly, company founder Manohar Adhikari said, although they had planned to launch business in Pokhara quite earlier than this, Covid-19 caused the delay.

"We had planned for the business expansion in various cities within 2020 but Covid-19 forced us to deviate from the goal," he stated. He further shared that 2021 would be the year of business expansion for Foodmandu.

At the press conference, Chairperson of Restaurant and Bar Association of Nepal (REBAN) Pokhara, expressed belief that the online food delivery would not only convenience the customers but also help restaurants expand their services and enhance quality.

Pokhara denizens are provided 30 percent discount till the end of January.
