dahmakan raises US$5M to roll out its chef-cooked food delivery in Thailand, Malaysia

Dahmakan, which means “have you eaten?” in Malay, offers fresh and healthy meals produced daily in their own kitchens by the best chefs. Every day, customers can choose among a selection of 30 items including 8 main dishes, several appetizers, sides, and snacks to be delivered to their door. The 8 main courses change daily. Dahmakan puts a focus on healthy eating in contrast to the typical junk food orders that others in the food delivery market offer through their marketplace of restaurants.

Dahmakan has already introduced ‘satellite’ hubs in Kuala Lumpar that allows it to serve customers located in different parts of the city more efficiently and faster than other Food Delivery services out there.

In May 2019, the company announced a $5M Series A round of funding with existing and new global investors, including Partech and China’s UpHonest Capital. Y-Combinator, UK-based Atami Capital and former CEO of Nestle also joined the round.

“In the last few years, we have developed an operating system that drastically reduces the traditionally high cost structure of food delivery. The technology allows us to deliver better quality food at more affordable prices compared to other on-demand food delivery startups while maintaining a higher profit contribution margin,” said Jonathan Weins CEO of dahmakan.

“This new funding round will allow us to drive growth in existing and new markets, including launching new distribution channels such as partnering with food delivery marketplaces and retailers as well as expanding our own delivery coverage,” he added.

Nicolas El Baze, General Partner at Partech, said: “We have looked at different companies in the space in Silicon Valley, Europe and Asia. dahmakan clearly stood out due to its unique operating system that orchestrates all parts of the value chain. The company has reached a crucial inflection point as the system is now ready to expand fast into other markets in Asia.”

We are delighted to welcome dahmakan into our portfolio!
