After Conquering Zagreb, Glovo Takes to Another Croatian City

Lauren Simmonds

If you’ve spent any time in the Croatian capital of Zagreb over the last year or so, you’ll likely have noticed a growing abundance of people riding around on bicycles with yellow bags on their backs. The now very popular Glovo delivery service, which delivers everything from food to medical supplies and… well… anything and everything else, began operating in Zagreb not so long ago.

Glovo is otherwise a Spanish startup founded back in 2015 in Barcelona. Its mobile app allows users to make purchases, arrange pick ups and deliveries, with food delivery being naturally among the most popular reasons to use the service.

The delivery service soared in popularity when it came to Zagreb, offering employment as well as ease of access to typically very quick delivery services, and in an environmentally friendly way, by bike, on top of all that. McDonald’s restaurants in three city locations recently decided to use the service to deliver their food to customers, and the move of Glovo being the one to finally bring the old desire for McDonald’s to do home deliveries has of course proven successful.

Now that Glovo has its claws well and truly into the Croatian capital, it wants to expand to yet another Croatian city, the second largest – Split.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Darko Bicak writes on the 13th of September, 2019, Teo Širola, General Manager for Glovo Croatia pointed out that in Zagreb they were convinced that Glovo’s entry had been a complete and utter transformation of the fast delivery domain in the Republic of Croatia.

As such, Glovo is taking to Dalmatia and their main delivery services will be available in Split as of this coming Monday, as was found out from the headquarters of the company in Zagreb. As stated, in just six months, this service has become very popular in Zagreb, where thousands of citizens order food through Glovo, and allow the service to perform a variety of micro-deliveries, from food from the store, medication from the pharmacy, to forgotten keys or the delivery of other packages.

Teo Širola stated that after Glovo’s experience in over a hundred cities in twenty countries and across three continents, the company is now secure and is ready for Split.
