Talabat announces operations in Iraq


October 15, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

The regional food and grocery delivery app Talabat has announced the expansion of its services into the Republic of Iraq. The app, which operates in eight markets throughout the MENA region, will initially launch operations in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan in early 2021, before expanding into Federal Iraq in 2021.

Embarking on its new journey to serve local foodies, talabat brings along a unique blend of global know-how with a Middle Eastern persona.

Founded in Kuwait in 2004, talabat continues to service the food delivery in the eight markets in which it operates, and has now set its sights on introducing food delivery in Iraq, helping restaurant partners grow through , while at the same time allowing customers to enjoy affordability, variety and speed of delivery.

Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO at talabat, says that the organisation is excited to expand into Iraq, a country with a rich culinary heritage and strategic importance in the region.

“Iraq is a country with a definite love of food, which is why we cannot wait to enter the market. We’re excited to enable that rich culinary heritage to be shared to the broader community by further developing the online delivery experience for customers, and partnering with local restaurants to fuel their growth through our platform, as well as creating employment opportunities for local talent across our operations,” Rodriguez says.

As the leading platform in the GCC, Egypt and Jordan, talabat is looking forward to redefining the way that Iraqi’s experience the love of food. The talabat app will be available for download in Iraq on the IOS Appstore or Google Play from December onwards.

With a network of over 13,000 restaurants and stores and 24,000 branches, talabat has become the region’s food delivery. Currently present in a total of 9 markets across the region.
