“Currently, our average delivery time is less than 45 minutes which is the quickest in Nigeria. We are reinforcing our operations to further cut our average delivery time to guarantee that both food and pizza are delivered at best times to our customers while not compromising quality.”

On his part, the Chief Executive Officer of Marathon Restaurant Africa, which manages and operates Pizza Hut in Nigeria, Tony Ozanne, explained that as a recent entrant into the Nigerian market, they conducted extensive research to identify key players in the market and Jumia’s food marketplace was one of them, thus the partnership.

He remarked: “Jumia’s Food marketplace has the platform and the customers. We felt that since we are new in Nigeria, we can ride on their back to get the traction we want. As from today, you can either walk into our 3 locations in Lagos (Ikoyi, Ikeja City Mall and Lekki) to buy Pizza or take the convenient step by ordering on Jumia’s Food marketplace.”
