COVID-19 Malaysia: StoreHub Powers Food Delivery For Restaurants

posted on 09 Mar 2020

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?

Malaysia has about 900,000 registered SMEs. And almost 20% of them are F&B businesses. In fact, half of the businesses who use StoreHub are cafes and restaurants.

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

StoreHub is partnering with some of Malaysia’s top logistics providers like Lalamove, GoGet and ZeptoExpress to enable F&B businesses to run food delivery services on their own.

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.
