COVID-19 Philippines: StoreHub Powers Food Delivery For Restaurants
The Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in the Philippines was recently extended to 30 April 2020 in order to reduce the number of coronavirus (COVID-19) case.
While this is needed to control the rapid spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, the impact of the lockdown and travel restriction to the 1.5 – 1.6 million MSME (micro, small and medium enterprises) in the country is unprecedented.
What does the lockdown mean for F&B businesses in Philippines?
There are about 30,000 F&B businesses in the Philippines.
And a lot of them, especially in Metro Manila, have decided to close during the lockdown.
With the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and travel restrictions in place, all these F&B businesses stand to lose billions of peso in revenue – potentially putting many of them out of business.
But, all is not lost.
Food delivery services can still be run by these businesses.
So the team at StoreHub got to work immediately with a single goal – to #SaveOurStores and #SaveOurSMEs.
StoreHub is partnering with some logistics providers in the Philippines to enable F&B businesses to run a food delivery service on their own.
It’s called Beep Delivery.
Beep Delivery is a feature within StoreHub’s ecosystem that will allow Filipinos to order food from their favourite cafes and restaurants during this coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.
This helps keep amazing F&B businesses running, and it allows Filipinos to access their favourite cafes or restaurants without having to leave their homes.
Our entire team is working around the clock to make this happen for F&B businesses immediately.
Beep Delivery is a food delivery service that both you and your customers will love!
This feature will basically enable you to run food delivery on your own without depending on food delivery marketplaces.
Here’s how it works…
When businesses sign up for Beep Delivery, they’ll be provided with their own website link that they can send to customers.
Their customers will then be able to use the link to:
- Choose between delivery and self pickup
- Browse the menu and order
- Key in their delivery address and details
- Pay via their preferred payment options
- Receive their food & enjoy!
