Fastest Cakes: From 0 to 60,000 deliveries in 3 Years
It’s human to forget. In fact, it takes a lot of conscious effort to remember every special person’s birthday in your life.
There are generally limited options to still celebrate if you forgot to make any preparations for your loved ones’ birthday or anniversary.
A Lagos-based company, Fastestcakes.com has been helping people deliver cakes to their loved ones at short notice. You can easily order a birthday cake by 11 am and still get it delivered to any location within Lagos that same day.
In Lagos, a city notorious for heavy vehicular traffic, the company has developed a smart logistics system that helps it deliver cakes to different locations within the state in a very short time.
To boost its delivery speeds, Fastest Cakes has four operational production facilities in Ikeja, Surulere, Lekki Phase 1 and Ajah. These serve as bases from which cakes are shipped to different parts of the state.
This service has gained tens of thousands of customers who don’t simply have time to plan birthdays for their spouses, partners, children or even colleagues at work. The company has seen its orders grow from just a few hundred to over 4,000 cake orders a month, they’re in fact about to hit the 60,000 order milestone in just over 3 years.
To help with its logistics, it started a logistics department and purchased a fleet of vehicles that gives it the flexibility to deliver cakes in good condition to even remote parts of the state. It also partners with ride-hailing companies like Bolt to fulfil its orders.
Another thing to admire is the affordability of their cakes, you can basically get a cake, even when on a tight budget. Their cakes start from just 6,500 Naira for a 10-inch vanilla cake. They also have ice cream cakes and fruit cakes at affordable prices.
