Let’s be real here, restaurants and cafes pay too much to get their food delivered to hungry consumers. Consumers in turn are paying more than needed because of this for the purchase and delivery of their food and drinks.
Thankfully, EATLOKAL is all set to change that as the independent food delivery platform has begun offering early access to the service for the public across Klang Valley neighborhoods. This allows consumers to support local businesses and offer restaurants fair value for food delivery.
Initial service areas will be for restaurants and consumers within a 5 km radius of each other as EATLOKAL begins offering deliveries from a curated and growing selection of partners. The service will increase its coverage range, restaurant selection, and co-branded food and beverage offerings in the coming months.
EATLOKAL will charge restaurants that are approved to join at an initial commission on sales of only 10% for the launch period as part of its efforts to help these businesses bounce back. The service believes that the bulk of the revenue earned through sales of food should stay with restaurants at this time, and consumers will also enjoy better value for their Ringgit.
The service is now available across Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar, Damansara, Hartamas, Mont Kiara, Tropicana, Bandar Utama, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sunway, Subang Jaya, USJ, and surrounding areas. Favourite neighborhood names on EatLokal already include YMT Healthy Vegetarian, W1 Dining & Cocktails, Concubine KL, Asian Rice Pot, The Locker & Loft and The Accidental Bakers.
Using resources from partner brands like MYGROSER and SOCAR, EATLOKAL will also be helping restaurants on its service expand their customer base to improve their ability to earn and bounce back from the challenges of the current global pandemic.
EATLOKAL aims to change how food delivery is done in Malaysia, and personally, I sure hope they do. You can check the availability of service in their locations through EATLOKAL’s website ; or on the iOS and Android apps found on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store from today.
