Didi announced via their official WeChat account on May 24 that their food delivery service, Didi Foodie, will formally land in its second city, Nanjing, on June 1. On April 9, Didi launched its first foodie service in Wuxi.

According to the company, the service in Nanjing will follow strict food safety and delivery standards. Didi also hopes to cooperate with municipal administrative parties including traffic management department to improve service.

The company solicited ideas for their next city after Wuxi and Nanjing got the most votes (86,455). Meanwhile, Nanjing is the capital of China’s wealthy Jiangsu province – the province where Wuxi is located. Didi will leverage the marketing, channel, and administrative advantages it acquired in Wuxi. Nanjing is the first city where delivery service leader Meituan landed its ride-hailing business last year.
