Last-mile delivery is experiencing rapid growth in Africa. This segment is bolstered by the rise of e-commerce on the continent, with local tech entrepreneurs offering increasingly tailored solutions to African populations.

Yoboresto, a food delivery solution created by a Gabonese startup, enables users to order from a variety of restaurants in Libreville via a mobile application. The delivery time ranges from 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the distance between the restaurant and the delivery location. Founded in 2018 by Anthony Marat, the startup operates in the city where it is based.

The application, is available on both iOS and Android, with the Android app already downloaded over 10,000 times per Play Store data. To register, users are required to complete a form with their first name, last name, phone number, email address, and password. Once registered, users can conveniently place orders from the startup’s partner restaurants from their home or office.

The platform provides a list of restaurants, but users also have the option to search for a specific restaurant by name using the search bar. If time is of the essence, users can search by neighborhood to find the nearest establishments or by the type of cuisine offered by the restaurants. For instance, a search for “African cuisines” will automatically filter out fast food, Chinese, or Indian restaurants.

Upon selecting a restaurant, users can view the menu, meal prices, opening and closing hours, photos of the restaurant, ratings (out of 5 stars), and comments from previous customers. Yoboresto ensures that all necessary information is readily available to aid users in making an informed decision between different orders or restaurants.

In addition to online food ordering, Yoboresto rewards its users with bonus points that can be redeemed for discounts at several establishments on the platform. A feature also allows users to make reservations at restaurants for lunch or dinner. For restaurant promoters, the startup has established a registration procedure on its platform, which requires the provision of certain details.
