Top 10 Food Delivery Apps/Services in Kampala


A year ago Kampala had only 3 properly functioning online food delivery apps/services. This was normal given the fact that every one in Kampala pretty much has a "boda guy" that runs their errands so those apps weren't really useful.


Fast forward to 2020 and mostly due to the Covid-19 pandemic that hindered the efficiency of Boda services, food delivery apps/services have suddenly blown up out of nowhere. Quotes "neccessity is the mother of invention"..ha..cheesy,, Anyways, we tried a few delivery services during lockdown and compiled a few that worked for us. Check them out below.
