Kenya: Alcohol-Delivery Firm Dial a Drink Kenya Providing Convenience Amid Pandemic




Nairobi — Founded two months after the corona virus outbreak in Kenya, Drinkup, an alcohol delivery firm has aligned itself to online delivery of alcohol in order to reduce unnecessary movements which is key in minimizing the risk of corona virus infections in the country.

The firm, which was founded in February but launched its operations in May is solely focused on alcoholic products ranging from wines, spirits, beer amongst others.

With a fixed Sh 100 delivery fee, Kenyans across Nairobi and its environs can order their favorite drinks through the multi vendor platform, a phone call or an SMS for a delivery within 30 minutes.

Speaking to Capital Business, Drinkup Director Charles Wagura noted that the launch of firm was inspired by the need to create convenience for Kenyans in the wake of the pandemic which has necessitated the need to avoid physical contact and unnecessary movements.

“The main inspiration behind the formation of this firm is the convenience brought by online delivery and our clients do not have to go the shop, they can either call, send a text or order the drink from our online platform,” he said.

The experience in the market so far, Wagura said, “has been immense” , with more people ordering through the application with variety of drink choices for the clients and convenient drivers who can deliver quickly.

“The industry is receptive to the business, most people prefer online deliveries, this is why you see most business are turning to e-commerce,” he said.
