Created by Rai Umair and Nauman Sikandar in 2012, EatOye! became a hot favorite food ordering app instantly. Now, it is being re-branded to FoodPanda. Back in 2015, FoodPanda acquired the app but it was decided by both the parties that they will continue operating under their separate names. However, after doing so for a long while, EatOye! has finally agreed to take the name of its parent company.
Since its acquisition to the present moment, EatOye! has played a key role in linking more than half a million population to 1,500 different restaurants. There is a still a lot of growth potential as the service is now in 24 countries and has partnered with more than 40,000 restaurants. To celebrate the success and add more value to it, EatOye! is not fully joining FoodPanda and re-branding itself.
Nauman Sikandar Mirza who is the CEO of FoodPanda and founder of EatOye!, the move just made a lot of sense as the app has been a part of FoodPanda for quite some time now. Both the apps were trying individually to make the food ordering experience better for the masses. Hence, it became necessary for them to work together to make the efforts more effective.
Following the rebrand, the company will also be migrating to a new website and a new app altogether will be created for the customers. This will be one of the major steps in the functioning of the company and the services offered by it. People will be given a single platform which combines the positives of both the apps and offers them the best possible services.
Some people are worried about the quality of service as the users of both the apps will now be accessing a single platform. Thus, the increased workload might become a hindrance in providing up to the mark service.
For all such people, CEO has assured that there will be no compromise on providing the best to all the customers. In fact, the service will be better than before and will eliminate the small loopholes which existed before.
Besides, the food will be from the same restaurants from where the customers have been ordering before so the rebranding doesn’t have anything to do with it. The delivery service will be carried out by the same teams so no problem will arise from that end as well.
