HungryNaki is the main competitor of foodpanda in Bangladesh. Basically both foodpanda and
HungryNaki are aims at delivering the food from the desired restaurant. We can see that
hungryNaki is becoming the main competitor of foodpanda and its aim is also provideing people
with food from their favorite restaurants without having to fight through traffic, bad weather or
wait in queue. They also cater to the lazy ones who never wish to leave their abodes. They make
more than 100 deliveries each day and the number is only increasing. It is an e-commerce
website, which delivers food from restaurants to your doorstep and its all just a click away.
Foodpanda is giving a good fight back. HungryNaki is a Bangladeshi business entity whereas
foodpanda is a global server. Here we can say that foodpanda have lots of experience to face the
competition. Another competitor of foodpanda is Delivery Hero which is a Berlin based startup
that operates in almost 14 countries. Delivery Hero has raised around 200 million to date and
claims it has 6 million customers, 55000 restaurants, and 500 million in annual sales in last year.

Objectives and Strategies:

Foodpandas overall aim is to deliver food to the ends of the Earth before its rivals get there.
More objectives are discussed below in details:
Procurement -acquiring business for accessing a wider customer base, diversification of the
products, services and reducing competition.
Becoming a Market Leader- increasing market share so that it may become market leader of
online food ordering business.
Awareness- increasing awareness of new food brands by 20% in next 6 months.

Encouragement- encouraging customers who havent ordered from Food panda recently.
Foodpanda is currently the most globally prominent online marketplace for food delivery, active and
rising in Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. By the end of this fiscal, Foodpanda
aims to have a market share of up to 10 per cent of the food-ordering market. The market place growth of
Foodpanda is driven by expanding its services into eight more countries including:



Food Pandas growth strategy:

The growth strategies for Foodpanda include the following:

to build qualified and skilled teams

To collect data on all levels

To use scalable technologies right from the beginning

To maximized focus on efficient marketing

Having acquired the trust from experienced investors it will be able to continue its growth
strategy to become a truly global internet brand. Foodpanda takes over Delivery Heros
TastyKhana in India, which was started in 2007.Besides this it also acquired the Mexican food
delivery businesses PedidosYa, SeMeAntoja and Superantojo .These acquisitions allow
Foodpanda to extend its market leadership in India and improve strong position in Mexico. So, in
this way it will push its expansion within the existing markets, to gain presence at every corner
of every country they are active in.
It focuses on creating new entrepreneurs as a new CEO in every market its in the way Rocket
Internet does it. Now theyre in 40 markets. They can learn much faster from each other. So its
model is to have an entrepreneur sitting in a country using global standards that they can share to
improve that market.
According to Ralf Wenzel, CEO and Co-founder of Foodpanda, over 90 percent of the food
ordering market is still offline. That means customers prefer making phone calls to place orders.
Wenzel says that changing user behavior is a core thing that both Foodpanda and its competitors
should focus on.

Risk Management of Foodpanda:

The Foodpanda is facing a number of challenges where they can take development initiatives for
managing their risk well and making the business more profitable and competitive in future.
Some major challenges faced by the Foodpanda are as follows:

False Notification System: Foodpanda often shows the restaurant active while they are already
closed (particularly at night) and takes the order and after making the customer waiting for a
while they apologize for their mistakes which is really annoying. More amazingly they often
offer a free voucher for the ordered amount for taking the food from another restaurant so that
the customer is not dissatisfied!
Lose of Transaction: Sometime foodpanda loses the record of transaction. In May 2015 one of
the chain restaurants in Mumbai angrily cut off the contact with Foodpanda as it was not paying
a bill of 1.5 lakh rupees saying that it has no such record of transaction. Often it is also heard that
Foodpanda makes no response after taking the order and does not notify the restaurant regarding
the cancellation of order.
Laws and Regulations: Foopanda needs to face differentiated rules and regulation in different
countries. Many countries patronize local companies and does not facilitates a foreign company
like Foodpanda accordingly rather impose different bans and limit its activities.
Strong Existing Competitors: In many countries where Foodpanda is operating its function has
already got strong competitors like Pizza hut, McDonald and other local food delivery shops. So
Foodpanda needs to fight hard with existing competitors and provide better service at the same
Reluctance to Order Online: Many customers are unwilling to order food via online due to the
bad experience they already faced. Again many customers cannot even use internet to make an
order or they do not possess any debit or credit card to make the payment or they simply assume
it as complex.
