Bolt Food launched in the Mother City in April 2020 and has grown to offer delivery from more than 800 restaurants.

“We piloted Bolt Food in Cape Town last year, with outstanding results,” says James Townsend-Rose, country manager for Bolt Food in South Africa. “Restaurants and their customers welcomed Bolt Food’s affordable prices and quick deliveries, and we are excited to bring this solution to Johannesburg, and to other South African cities in the coming months.”

Bolt Food will deliver Joburg customers’ orders from a wide range of restaurants and fast-food outlets, including Burger King, Pizza Hut, Subway, Andiccio’s, Del Forno and many others. The service is currently available from Bryanston in the north to Braamfontein in the heart of the city and will expand across the city as more restaurants join the platform.


Food delivery fees will not be charged for orders where the distance between the food outlet and the delivery destination is less than 4.5 kilometres for the launch period. Bolt Food will also offer discounts of up to 50% on food orders from selected restaurants within that period.

Absa customers can get up to 30% cashback on their Bolt Food orders paid for with qualifying cards.
