We’re here to build the future of Africa, while having fun.


Who we are

Ayazona is a Kenyan startup founded in Nairobi, February 2018. The Ayazona app connects the consumers with the best in African cities. We are doing this by empowering local businesses and in turn, generating new ways for people to earn, work and live. We are starting by empowering communities to shop locally with less to no wait times, prevent food wastes, and empower businesses through our API to offer delivery, but we see this as just the beginning of connecting Africa with the emerging possibilities — easier evenings, happier days, bigger savings accounts, wider nets and stronger communities.

By offering fast and reliable delivery platform, which the user can track on their phone, Ayazona promises a revenue growth of upto 35% for restaurants using its portal, creating thousands of jobs in the food, delivery and, technology sector.

Our customers

Ayazona is on a mission to transform the way food is delivered and consumed across Africa. A key ingredient of our drive is having the best selection of popular restaurants to choose from, ensuring that great food is never wasted, and no family goes to bed without dinner.

By constantly innovating and expanding, we offer the best choice and convenience. Our aim is to bring great affordable food direct to customers as fast as possible, in less than 30 minutes.

Technology at the core

Ayazona was founded in Kenya and we are proud to export Kenyan-born technology around Africa, and – of course – the world. Our ‘Racoon’ algorithm is based on powerful predictive technology that evaluates the most efficient way of distributing orders based on the location of restaurants, riders and customers.

Machine learning helps to predict the time it will take to prepare a meal, helping to streamline the delivery experience. Ayazona intends to cut delivery time by 20%, meaning riders are able to complete more deliveries per hour and increase their earnings, restaurants are able to increase their sales, and – of course – customers get their food even faster.

The Fleet

Ayazona is proud to offer well-paid, flexible work and our riders are at the heart of all that we do. Their hard work powers our growth, and without them we would be unable to bring our customers the best food on demand while helping great local restaurants to grow.

Partner Merchants

Ayazona is passionate about food and bringing people more choice. There are amazing restaurants everywhere that we believe everyone should have access to.

But Ayazona’s mission is not only to make sure that the restaurants in your area are available to you when and where you want them - we want to go further and bring new restaurants to your area so you have even more choice of amazing food.

Ayazona’s Ignite platform does exactly that: we intend to help restaurants expand to new areas. Ignite identifies the cuisines that people want but do not have access to locally and then invests in restaurants who excel in those foods to help them set-up in those local areas.

Under the Ayazona Ignite program, working closely with our merchant partners, we want to lead the shift towards a more sustainable African communities, by ensuring that great food is never wasted, and no family goes to bed without dinner. If everyone takes small steps in tackling this issue, we can make a meaningful difference for the future!
