UAE-based commission-free ordering platform, ChatFood has entered into a delivery logistic partnership with Careem Express in order to provide a plug-and-play delivery solution for restaurant partners in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

Careem Express is the logistic arm of the one-stop solution app, Careem. The company said that the collaboration of two powerhouses will help restaurant merchants access a reliable delivery fleet at the click of a button.

ChatFood’s co-founder and CEO, Mr. Benjamin Mouflard, stated that, “Thanks to our partnership with Careem we can offer our restaurant partners an easy, plug-and-play solution so that they can focus on what they love and do best: cook amazing food and delight their customers.”

“In this time of surging food costs, labor shortage, and increasing commissions for hospitality venues, we know it’s key,” Mr. Mouflard further added.

ChatFood has already empowered over 3,000 hospitality venues across the Middle East to drive more than $100 million in sales and convert more than 1 million visitors into direct customers, growing at an impressive 260 percent year on year (YoY).

According to the company statement, “Dedicated to offering its partners with the technology and solutions needed to deliver guests with a seamless experience at every meal, ChatFood and Careem have made it very easy for partners to get started on commission-free orders delivered by Careem, including a fully-handled setup with no tedious contract negotiations. By doing this, they enable SMEs access to delivery on demand, even if they cannot afford to have their own fleet.”
