KUALA LUMPUR, 1st August 2013 – leading food delivery service has just recently announced a partnership with American international pizza chain Papa John’s and rotisserie chain RasaMas.

Local rotisserie chain, RasaMas has 20 chains nationwide and is owned by QSR Group – the parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut and Ayammas. Operating since 1996, RasaMas has gone through a few facelifts before settling to be “fast casual” dinning outlet with a wide range of food choices – from local delights to western food.

“Customers now have the added convenience of ordering Papa John's pizzas online or via foodpanda’s app" says Mr. Eric Leong, Head of Franchised Food Services of Papa John’s Malaysia.

With the increase in smartphone penetration, more people will order meals via mobile. By now, already more than 20% of our current orders come from the app.”

Having just signed up Chatime, the largest Taiwanese bubble tea franchise in Malaysia and Starbucks, the largest coffee chain in the world, foodpanda is aiming to get in more household name vendors and top restaurant chains in the Klang Valley.
