Nigerian startup Chowdeck, a rising star in the on-demand delivery sector, has successfully closed a $2.5 million seed funding round. The investment, sourced from a diverse group of backers including YCombinator, Goodwater Capital, and FounderX Ventures, signals a significant boost for the company’s ambitious growth plans.

Since its launch in October 2021, Chowdeck has rapidly gained traction, serving over 500,000 users and operating in eight major Nigerian cities. This latest infusion of capital will enable Chowdeck to consolidate its market leadership position in these cities while laying the groundwork for expansion into new territories.

The surge in demand for on-demand delivery services in Nigeria, driven by increasing smartphone penetration and internet accessibility, underscores the immense potential of platforms like Chowdeck. With traffic congestion plaguing urban centers, consumers are turning to convenient delivery solutions for their everyday needs, creating a ripe environment for Chowdeck’s growth.

Femi Aluko, CEO and co-founder of Chowdeck, expressed gratitude for the support of investors, emphasizing the company’s commitment to providing exceptional experiences for customers, vendors, and riders alike.

Strategic partnerships with industry heavyweights such as Shoprite, Chicken Republic, and KFC have further solidified Chowdeck’s position in the market. June Angelides, Partner at Levare Ventures, commended Chowdeck’s innovative approach and tenacity in navigating the complexities of the African delivery landscape.

As Chowdeck sets its sights on the next phase of expansion, the company remains poised to capitalize on emerging opportunities and drive further innovation in the Nigerian delivery ecosystem. With a clear vision and unwavering dedication to excellence, Chowdeck is well-positioned for sustained success in the competitive marketplace.
