Grab Malaysia has announced its first cloud kitchen, strategically located in Hartamas. The GrabKitchen is part of the company’s consecutive efforts to help growing businesses and independent brands to thrive and broaden their business more efficiently.
GrabKitchen debuted in Jakarta in 2018 and has been expanded to 55 cloud kitchens across Southeast Asia.
“Our regional experience with GrabKitchen makes us a suitable partner for F&B operators to expand their operations to address the growing evolution of the food industry and customers’ needs.
Not only is the GrabKitchen concept a unique and cost-efficient model for F&B operators, but they will also have ready access to our merchant support tools, strong delivery network and wide customer base,” said Sean Goh, Managing Director of Grab Malaysia.
Goh added that they noticed how the financial effect of the pandemic has impacted restaurants and brands, so with GrabKitchen, the homegrown brand will support the partners’ ecosystem while still catering to customers’ cravings in the following way which are business expansion with low capital, variety and affordability and more jobs with higher income.
Aligning with health and safety requirements, all merchants and delivery partners need to scan their MySejahtera app upon entering, have their temperature scanned, have the mask on and also examine the essential social distancing in and around the GrabKitchen. It is also cleaned and sanitised daily for the best levels of food safety.
Grab hopes to expand its GrabKitchens network across Malaysia, as the fastest-growing food delivery service in Malaysia, to benefit and help more brands expand and grow their business.
GrabKitchen is available from 10am to 10pm in line with the current movement control order, with last orders to be placed by 9.20pm (subject to changes to the movement control order) or customers can also choose the ‘self-pick up’ (zero delivery fee) option.
