A Burnaby business success story continues to expand its global footprint.

Asian food delivery app Fantuan Delivery has announced its launch in Australia, kicking off its operation in Sydney and Melbourne.

Fantuan was founded by Randy Wu in 2014 while he was still a student at Simon Fraser University. The company has its headquarters located in Burnaby and saw 200% year-over-year growth in 2021, the company said.  The company recently completed series B and C funding to help its expansion.

Starting March 1, Australian foodies are now able to enjoy delivery and pickup services through the Fantuan Delivery App, available on Android and iOS. Fantuan Delivery will initially be available in CBD, Boxhill in Melbourne, and Eastwood in Sydney, the company said, with plans to rapidly expand to other areas in the following months.

Fantuan has footprints in over 40 cities across North America. Fantuan Delivery partners with more than 10,000 couriers to deliver a variety of dishes. In addition, the Fantuan app now offers services in English in the U.S. and Canada to increase accessibility for local food lovers.

To celebrate its launch, Fantuan Delivery is offering $8 off on the first eight orders. Users will also be able to unlock 30% discount coupons for all restaurants on the Fantuan platform throughout March.
