Dahmakan, which delivers its own cooked food, raises US$2.6m

Dahmakan, a Malaysian based food delivery startup has raised US#2.6 million as it begins to explore expansion across Southeast Asia, said Tech Crunh.

The startup distinguishes itself from the likes of FoodPanda and Deliveroo with an “end-to-end” approach to food, that’s to say that it cooks all dishes itself and dispatches them to customers, too.

That’s also called “full-stack” but perhaps “food-stack” is more appropriate. It considers its food to be healthy rather than of the junk/variety.

Last year It raised $1.3 million in February and then went on to be part of YC’s summer 2017 program, becoming the first startup from Malaysia to enter the highly rated startup accelerator.

Dahmakan co-founder Jessica Li — one of a trio of ex-FoodPandas who started the company in 2015 — told TechCrunch that the new money (which is a pre-Series A) will go towards developing technology and exploring opportunities to expand the business in Southeast Asia, a region where online spending is tipped to quadruple by 2025.

Indonesia and Thailand are two market expansions that are being mulled at this point.
