Spanish quick-commerce start-up, Glovo, plans to scale its services to the Ashanti region, specifically Kumasi. Glovo hopes to ensure its services are available in other parts of the country, asides from Accra and Tema, through the expansion.

Founded in 2015, Glovo is an on-demand courier service that purchases, picks up, and delivers products ordered through its mobile app. It offers multiple services, with food delivery being the most popular offering.

The initiative will birth an injection of 3.5 million euros from the company. According to Sacha Michaud, co-founder, the company has identified Ghana as a growing market for the digital delivery business, hence the decision to increase its investment.

The expansion will also increase the employment rate as the company seeks to employ more youth and local partners to support the economy.

“Ghana is a very exciting market not only for Glovo, but other retail business operations moving faster in terms of business growth and also as I said, the government believes in digitalization especially for the SME sector. So, we found ourselves as a facilitator in this area and ready to inject some more into the Ghana operations”, Sacha Michaud.

“We plan to double our investment in Ghana, and for 2022, we are looking at about 3.5 million euros investments,” Sacha Michaud disclosed.
