Fave launches Takeaway in Singapore
By Digital News Asia October 15, 2019
- Signals intent to digitalise region’s F&B sector, become a regional super app for merchants
- Over 200 merchants will participate in the launch with more to follow by the end of the year
FAVE, a Southeast Asian digital merchant platform, has announced the launch of Fave Takeaway in Singapore.
Takeaway will allow customers to pre-order their meal selection and make payment via FavePay before picking up their order at the participating stores. Customers can look forward to the collection within 30 minutes (or less) depending on the restaurants’ speed of service. Users will also be able to enjoy Fave’s various cashback and rewards offerings. The new feature follows the launch of Fave’s Table Ordering service in May this year.
Fave co-founder and chief executive officer Joel Neoh said, “As the government continues to push for a digital and seamless economy, Fave is helping SMEs adapt to the new landscape and in a more cost-effective way by giving them the tools to enable them to serve their customers in the best and efficient way possible. The introduction of Takeaway is our way of enabling that our merchants get the most out of the platform by increasing productivity and revenue.”
Takeaway signals Fave’s commitment to digitise Southeast Asia’s F&B sector further by allowing merchants to efficiently serve more customers beyond the capacity of their outlets while diversifying their revenue streams and increasing productivity.
Fave Singapore managing director Ng Aik-Phong said, “Queueing makes up a large portion of the average Singaporean’s time, but it is not something we would want to do when we are in a rush. That’s when we want our food fast and efficient! With the introduction of Takeaway, we hope to bring convenience and efficiency to our consumers while constantly improving our platform for both merchants and consumers.”
Participating merchants include Paul, Wafuken, Menya Musashi, Ajisen, Tokidon, Isaac Toast, BBQ Box, Tuk Tuk Cha and Chicken Up. Over 200 merchants will be participating in the launch of Takeaway with more to follow by the end of the year.
With at least a third of F&B outlets in Singapore using at least one tech solution to boost their productivity and one in four merchants currently on Fave, the initiative comes at an opportune time as the sector looks to grow.
First-time users to Takeaway may use the following promo code “SKIPQ” to get S$2 off their purchases with a minimum spend of S$6. Visitors to Artbox Singapore 2019 will also be able to utilise Takeaway and FavePay during the event.
