City Rydes, Providing a Hustle Free Life For Kisumu Residents 

Imagine this. You are extremely busy, working hard at your office desk. You have deadlines to meet and your boss is on your neck. Then you remember that you need to settle that water bill, or electricity bill that arrived at your desk two days ago. Tricky right? Or consider this. You are out-of-town, fieldwork probably, and you need a parcel picked for you and delivered at some point urgently. Or you need an errand to be run urgently. What do you do?

Here is what you do, you grab your phone and call or text cityrydes.com. City Rydes will schedule your errands as soon as they receive them, they will then give you a quotation and thereafter dispatch one of their three runners (or motorbike riders) to the errand location within 30 minutes of booking confirmation and execute your requests in full as instructed. Cool, right?

City Rydes is one of the most promising and fastest growing start-ups in Kisumu. So much so, that they are among the 100 African companies that are currently being mentored under Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme. City Rydes is a simple problem solver that will save you time from running small personal errands or office errands.

City Rydes was founded by three guys-Maurice Cerullo, David Otieno and Kenny Rachuonyo who were struck by this idea while attending DEMO Africa, a start-up conference back in 2010 at Safari Park. Since then, the start-up has grown in leaps and bounds.

Since they started operating in Kisumu in July 2014, City Rydes have amassed an impressive client list which includes Access Kenya, MetroPark Hotel and Action Aid. These, coupled with extremely positive feedback they get from each client only shows the potential that this start-up possesses.

However this journey has not been smooth sailing. City Rydes have had to work hard to earn client trust and make sure that the brand is known for timely deliveries. In this regard City Rydes will take full responsibility for the facilitation and completion of all paid-for errands and thus guarantee 100% customer satisfaction with their services.

And because City Rydes pride themselves in Customer satisfaction, they will refund the full errand cost in the unlikely event that dissatisfaction is caused as a result of their non-adherence to specified instructions.

City Rydes is a start-up that will only get better with each completed errand and transaction.
