Venezuela Startup Is Expanding Quick Delivery Business Across Latin America

  • Yummy launches in Ecuador, Panama, eyes two more countries
  • Startup delivers items from dark stores in around 14 minutes

Yummy, a delivery app that has grown into Venezuela’s largest tech startup, is expanding its quick commerce service to Ecuador and Panama, continuing a fast-paced international expansion that began last year. 

The company, which has thrived since its founding in Caracas in April, 2020, is launching its Yummy Rocket quick commerce service in those countries after that business line hit $2 million in monthly transactions, said Vicente Zavarce, the company’s founder and chief executive officer. The superapp is being rolled out in Quito and Guayaquil Monday. It allows customers to order among 1,500 products from so-called dark stores -- small supermarkets built by the company that serve as fulfillment centers for online orders.
