foodpanda—a global online food delivery platform that operates in more than 40 countries and partner to over 1,000 restaurants nationwide—collaborated with Globe Business to come up with a solution to aid KaPanda riders in connecting to the brand’s delivery app, communicating with customers, and boosting their daily operations.
The partnership introduced the special postpaid line, KaPanda Plan 500 which provides foodpanda riders access to unlimited calls and texts to all networks and sizable data allocation. The plan lets them access Roadrunner, the foodpanda delivery app used to receive customer requests; pandariders, the company’s website; Facebook community and Telegram channels for fleet updates; and Waze for easier GPS navigation.
“Food delivery riders have displayed true heroism throughout the pandemic. Amid the risks, our KaPanda riders have relentlessly worked hard to provide communities with safe and convenient access to food, while ensuring their own families are taken care of,” shared Jao Manahan, foodpanda Community & Communications Manager. “We wanted to ease their burdens by providing them with affordable customized postpaid plans that allow them to easily communicate and connect. We’re grateful for Globe’s commitment to helping us serve our fleet.”

Jemar Villocillo, who’s been working with foodpanda as a loyal KaPanda food rider for almost two years, shared his excitement over the new special postpaid plan: “Malaki ang maitutulong ng KaPanda Plan sa aming mga delivery riders. Kaysa sa magpa-load kami bawat buwan para maka-connect sa mga customers, mas pinadali at ginawang abot kaya ng foodpanda at Globe ang magkaroon ng Postpaid lines. Gamit ang KaPanda Plan, maari na kaming makatawag at gumamit ng data nang hindi nag-aalala ukol sa load.”
The enterprise arm of Globe Telecom strives to bridge the gap between businesses and customers through the proliferation of digitalization in the country. “Teaming up with companies such as foodpanda always brings us back to what matters—empowering people,” explained Raymond Policarpio, Globe Business Vice President for Product Management and Marketing. “Similar to their mission of changing the way people see and experience food delivery, we seek to transform the experiences of our clients through our growing portfolio of digital solutions and services. We hope that with our products and partnerships, we’ll be able to help businesses scale, propel their digital transformation, and create a positive effect on the lives of people.”
In addition to its customized postpaid plans, Globe Business also offers large corporations a wide selection of ICT solutions—ranging from the Cloud, cybersecurity, voice, business applications, managed services, to connectivity. The telco giant believes that as more companies digitally transform their operations, communications, and security, more Filipinos will be able to benefit from the possibilities brought about by technology.
