According to Nikkei Asian Review, the food delivery service Go-Food, in partnership with the smartphone app Go-Jek, has quickly taken over as the market leader, expanding into second-tier cities and partnering with popular chains.
Go-Food lists some 100,000 stores, from local satay stalls to fast food chains to pricey sushi restaurants. Users can place an order to a restaurant as far as 25 km away, and there is no minimum price.
