Yandex.Food Enters 79 New Cities

Retailers and chains can also connect to the service, Yandex. Food already delivers orders from the stores of the Vkusville and Alphabet of Taste chains in Moscow.

In all cities where Yandex.Food operates, orders can now also be made through the Yandex.Taxi, Yandex, and Yandex.Browser applications. This allows restaurants to significantly increase the audience that sees their offer, and increase orders.
