A food delivery service is one of the newest innovations to take over the delivery business.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli company Tachibana will begin offering delivery service to restaurants in Israel and beyond in 2018.
The company’s delivery service will also be available to foreign tourists in Israel.
“We will have delivery services to restaurants, grocery stores and grocery carts,” Tachiba CEO Andran Bock said.
“The first time the company delivered a product to a customer, the customer would receive the product at home and then go back to the store and return the product.”
The service is expected to provide the equivalent of 2.6 million meals per month to Israelis, according to Bock.
The average price per meal will be $6.49, according the Post.
The company was founded in 2015 and operates in nearly 40 countries in Europe, North America and Asia.
Tachiya is also a joint venture between Israeli company G4S, Germany’s Siemens and Austria’s TU Berlin.
Tachiba was founded by three men, Tachiah, Yosef and Yoel, in 2016.
Bock, a former employee of the Israeli police, said that the idea for the company was born after Tachibi was approached by an Israeli businessman with an interest in launching a delivery service.
In the meantime, the startup had to find ways to stay afloat financially.
Bocks father-in-law, Yael Maimon, is a partner in Tachibanas management and Tachisa, the company’s logo.
Tachibna plans to start its first delivery service in Israel by late 2021.
