Launched barely a year ago, app-based water delivery startup WaterWa has just recorded an impressive feat by sales reaching an impressive 4.8 million AED ($1.31M USD). A big chunk of this rapid growth can be attributed to the growing demand for water as people across the Emirates are forced to stay home because of the COVID-19 lockdown.
WaterWa enables customers to choose from a wide variety of water and beverages along with natively hosted price comparison tools. The orders are delivered right to your doorstep. Users can subscribe to the service for weekly or monthly deliveries to their homes and/or offices.
The post-lockdown surge in demand is just one part of the startup’s success story, though. WaterWa was already witnessing a steady growth rate since its launch last June. It has already a formidable network comprising 45 suppliers and more than 85 brands.
“We started with a focused vision to offer a singular solution to the GCC markets barely 10 months ago,” said Co-Founder & CEO, Abdulla Najem.
He added: “But the year 2020 kicked off with an unfortunate global crisis that affected basically every human being on earth! And this increased market demand for water delivery, resulting in a considerable rise in sales and downloads for us, and this has driven us to work extra hard to ensure all orders are delivered in a safe and timely manner.”
Following the initial success in the UAE, WaterWa has now expanded to the Kingdom of Bahrain. Up next, the company will launch operations in Oman before targeting the rest of the GCC market.
