During times of great need and delinquency, an app to order what you need sometimes can be a hand of salvation from the heavens. Apart from urgent needs, we sometimes want some specific foods or feel like not going out and buying our groceries. And at such moments, successfully functioning apps such as Getir, istegelsin, or Banabi, can turn food and grocery shopping into a simple task. As well as these apps might assist us during difficult times, they have proved their worth repeatedly during the Covid-19 pandemic. These delivery apps became the remedy for our needs during restrictions acting as a bridge between markets and people. Let us take a further look into some of the best food and grocery delivery apps to use in Istanbul.
Founded in 2015 with the efforts of Turkish entrepreneur Nazım Salur, Getir is one of the largest foods and grocery delivery apps that operate in seven Turkish cities and London. Offering “ultrafast” delivery of groceries, Getir has caught relentless success over the years. Doubling the number of orders received each year, Getir has started to operate in two more fields with GetirYemek and GetirBüyük. GetirYemek provides the best nearby restaurants, while GetirBüyük essentially satisfies customers who have a full grocery list. With its advantageous prices, fast and secure delivery, Getir is one of the best delivery apps to use in Istanbul, without a doubt.
One of the competing firms in delivery, istegelsin, is a rapidly growing app that promises a bright future. Stated as Turkey’s first online supermarket, istegelsin uses highly advanced technologies to successfully bring the highest quality products in the easiest way possible to their customers. From organic vegetables and fruits stored to keep vegetables their freshness to meat and dairy products, everything can be found in the great variety of choices that istegelsin provides. Currently operating in cities like Istanbul, Kocaeli, Ankara, and Bodrum, istegelsin manages to reach the furthest points of Istanbul in the fastest way possible.
Another project of Nevzat Aydın, Banabi, is a grocery delivery app that uses the same successful food delivery app, Yemeksepeti. Banabi was established in 2019 to take advantage of the newly rising field of online grocery delivery. Providing extremely fast ways of delivery to their customers, Banabi now sells more than 4000 different items to their 2 million customers in 29 cities of Turkey. With its succeeding technological infrastructure, Banabi manages to operate smoothly. Winning annual awards with their success, Banabi has grown more than six times from 2019 to 2020.
