Malaysia will be under a 14-day nationwide partial lockdown from 18 – 31 March 2020 in order to slow the rise of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases.
And during this time, all business premises except for essential services, will be closed.
While this Movement Control Order is needed to control the rapid spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Malaysia, its impact to small and medium businesses across the country is unprecedented, particularly on F&B businesses.
What does the partial lockdown mean for F&B businesses in Malaysia?
With the 14-day partial lockdown in place to tackle the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis in Malaysia, these F&B businesses stand to lose billions of ringgit in revenue – potentially putting many of them out of business.
But, all is not lost.
We’ve learned that food delivery services will still be able to operate as usual during this time.
So an hour after the Prime Minister’s address at 11PM, 16 March 2020, the team at StoreHub got to work immediately with a single goal – to #SaveOurStores.
Enabling F&B businesses to run a food delivery service on their own with Beep Delivery
It’s called Beep Delivery.
Beep Delivery is a feature within StoreHub’s ecosystem that will allow Malaysians to order food from their favourite cafes and restaurants during this coronavirus (COVID-19) 14-day partial lockdown.
This helps keep amazing F&B businesses running, and it allows Malaysians 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.
How does Beep Delivery work?
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.
