They stated that together, these co-founders of Jise promise to improve the livelihood of its merchants, runners and users by continuously creating a swift, seamless and affordable delivery service using its integrated solution.

“Jise has gone live by signing up more than 40 restaurant menus on their platform first within the Lekki Phase 1 axis of Lagos.

“We hope to provide meals within 25 minutes to customers in this axis then gradually expand our community-based model starting with bicycle runners across Lagos in preparation for the holiday season.”

However,the firm revealed that following the covid-19 outbreak in 2020, the demand for food and groceries delivery services has increased around the world.

“This new normal has had consumers demanding a better food delivery service in Nigeria, Jise has seized this opportunity to provide a food delivery platform focusing on providing fast and affordable delivery services starting with Lagos,” the firm stated.

It adds that, “Jise was birthed due to the inadequacies and the problems caused by delivery partners who are multi-category focused that results in unfulfilled or late food deliveries, which then leads to disappointment that invariably threatens brand integrity of most of our local restaurants.
