Wow, so Gokada’s CEO Fahim saleh has decided to launch something new into the atomsphere.
This week, several Gokada bikes were spotted around Lagos making deliveries with boxes labelled ‘GCHOP’ on them. This immediately brought about different schools of thought on what Gokada was doing with them.
While one school of thought claimed the former bike-hailing startup has ventured into food, another school of thought claimed it is partnering with JumiaFoods.
However, Gokada CEO, Fahim Saleh disclosed to Faqontech that the GChop bags were currently being used only for logistics, not food deliveries.
“So those bags are for delivery and logistics services,” Fahim told Faqontech. “Although the bags say GChop on them, they are currently only being used for logisitcs operations (parcels and letters).”
He further clarified that Gokada branded all the bags with ‘Chop’ logo because food is a more “consumer facing vertical” and as such, deserves to be the face of the business.
“Our food vertical is called GChop. Since food is just a more consumer facing vertical, we decided to brand the bags with the GChop logo,” he clarified.
Following the recent ban on bike-hailing startups in some major areas of Lagos, the startup laid off about 70% of its staff in what a few feared was a prelude to a shutdown.
But while Gokada is yet launch a food delivery service, reports making the rounds suggested that Gokada is partnering with Jumia Foods to deliver food.
