Menulog has strengthened its expansion into the grocery and convenience sector through its new partnership with Eats2U, EG Australia’s convenience delivery service.
The partnership will see more than 200 Eats2U stores around the country be made available on Menulog and comes at a time of rapid expansion for Menulog, and high demand for delivery services.
Demand is not only being fuelled by metropolitan areas, yet equally regional areas as convenience retailers nationwide keep pace with consumer appetite for on-demand services.
In fact, more than 50 per cent of Menulog’s grocery and convenience orders in March 2022 were among suburban and regional based stores, a figure that’s been steadily on the increase for the past year.
Menulog’s partnership with Eats2U spans stores around the country and caters to the needs of Australians across inner city capitals, suburban, and regional areas.
These Eats2U stores join more than 2,200 existing grocery and convenience outlets already established on Menulog, including more than 270 bp stores, 130 IGAs, and 190 Quickstop United Petroleum stores.
Rory Murphy, Commercial Director ANZ, Menulog, said that Menulog’s footprint is a key differentiator with a highly competitive presence across Australia, including in regional and suburban areas as well as inner cities.
“It’s not just inner-city areas hungry for quick delivery of grocery and convenience items and we’re seeing regional Australia punch above its weight. As we continue to expand our partnerships in the convenience and grocery space, helping to cater to Aussies around all corners of the country, we anticipate these figures will only grow.
“We’re excited to partner with Eats2U to offer customers across the country more of what they want, from a trusted platform.”
With a strong presence in the UK, Europe, and the US, EG Group acquired around 540 Woolworths petrol and convenience sites in Australia in 2019.
Leo Pucar, Commercial Director, EG Australia, said that there has been a boom in on-demand services from their customers.
“We know our customers are looking for new and convenient ways to receive our products and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Menulog to offer them greater flexibility.
“On-demand services are a booming area of focus for us, with significant business growth opportunities. This partnership gives us access to Menulog’s significant courier network around the country and an excellent platform and team dedicated to great customer service.”
