Fave ramps up efforts in Singapore with new takeaway service

Digital merchant platform Fave has launched Fave Takeaway in Singapore. Over 200 merchants will be participating, with more to follow by the end of the year.

The new service, Takeaway, enables customers to pre-order their meal selection and make payment via FavePay before picking up their order at the participating stores. Current participating merchants include Paul, Wafuken, Menya Musashi, Ajisen, Tokidon, Isaac Toast, BBQ Box, Tuk Tuk Cha and Chicken Up.

As part of Fave's promotional efforts for the new service, first-time users to Takeaway may use the promo code “SKIPQ” to get SG$2 off their purchases with a minimum spend of SG$6. Takeaway and FavePay will also made available to visitors at Artbox Singapore 2019. Users are also entitled to Fave’s various cashback and rewards offerings.

The new addition comes after the launch of Fave’s table ordering service in May this year. According to a press release, the launches signal Fave’s intent and ambition to become a super app for the region’s food and beverage (F&B) sector. The company aims to help 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 co-founder and CEO Joel Neoh said 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."

Fave, which has one in four merchants on its platform, said it has helped SMEs to grow their revenue by over US$280 million this year. The response towards Takeaway has also been "positive", as merchants embrace Fave’s offerings as a tool to aid in their businesses.

Fave Singapore MD Ng Aik-Phong added that the introduction of Takeaway also seeks to bring convenience and efficiency to the consumers. The company looks to help Singaporeans save time on queuing and improves the speed and efficiency of buying food.
