BACOLOD CITY — Homegrown startup Juan Ride is boosting its food delivery service by launching a website.
Co-founder Ace Muyco said juanride.ph will be unveiled on Friday to rebrand their service from the previous messenger chat platform.
He said they aim to provide a more convenient food delivery service and serve more clients.
“Through this new platform, we want to provide better user experience. The website offers easier order and faster delivery services,” Ace said.
Juan Ride is coined from the concept of “one ride,” which means fast while the term “juan” refers to Filipinos.
Ace’s brother Argie, chief executive officer and founder of Juan Ride, started the food delivery service via Facebook Messenger in October 2017, making it one of the pioneers in Bacolod.
To date, it has about 60 partner-restaurants in Bacolod and neighboring Talisay City. All 15 Juan Riders who make the deliveries get a share from the payment of the clients.
Ace said the website carries more visuals and contents that are more user-friendly as it provides more accurate details like bills and faster transactions.
“We are eventually expanding to 10 cities in the Visayas and Mindanao including Iloilo, Cebu, Davao and Tacloban, among others,” Ace said.
Juan Ride is part of the “The Final Pitch,” a television reality show for entrepreneurs which airs on CNN Philippines.
In the March 24 episode, Argie will pitch the idea of their food delivery service via digital platform. (PNA)
