Online food delivery company, Bolt Food has released a new edition of its Bolt Food Index Report and it is probably what you think. According to the reports, Nairobians can’t seem to get enough of spicy fried chicken.
The second on the list turned out to be chicken and chips and the third, fried chicken and chicken winglets.
The report also highlighted a shift in consumer behaviour with an increased number of people ordering European and Asian cuisine.
“We have over 50 different cuisines offering chicken in various types. Some of the key drivers include affordability of meals and the familiarity of brands such as Java, Chicken Inn, ArtCaffe and KFC,” said Bolt Food Country Manager Edgar Kipng’etich Kitur.
“Nairobians are diversifying from fast-food restaurants and opting to choose chicken from Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish restaurants,” said Mr Kitur.
The Bolt Food report also added that peak food delivery orders are at 2 pm during weekdays and 9 pm at weekends.
There are over 600 registered restaurants on the Bolt Food app for customers to order from in all parts of Nairobi.
“We have received positive feedback on the quality, selection of restaurants, operations and prices. There is a huge demand, and we continue to scale up our operations to bring quality services closer to our customers at affordable prices. We are committed to solidifying our food business in Kenya, and granting many people access to Bolt Food.”
Mr Kitur said, while speaking on the progress the app has made so far.
