Hong Kong on-demand delivery startup Lalamove and travel-activities booking platform Klook have collaborated to offer a new express food-delivery service to support the local food-and-beverage industry.
Available on Klook as “A Guide to the Best Meal” until March 31, consumers can order from six partner restaurants with no location restrictions to then arrange a delivery time through Lalamove.
Klook has also introduced its ‘Grab n Go’ self pick-up takeaway service with its partners, available until May 31.
“We are now exploring more F&B experiences and looking into leisure activities, to diversify our activities spectrum and bring the most fantastic experiences to our customers,” said Percy Kwan, Klook’s marketing director for Hong Kong.
Latest government figures indicate a 14.3-per-cent year-on-year drop in fourth quarter Hong Kong restaurant receipts. The partnership between the two local unicorns aims to help food establishments open up new sales and promotional channels by offering consumers convenience along with discounts and food packages.
As citizens opt to stay-in and employees work from home during the coronavirus crisis, a dramatic surge in online food deliveries has created new business opportunities for other local players as well, including Foodpanda, which has launched a 15-minute express-delivery service.
