Grab Announces Expansion Of Hawker Pilot Programme To 16 Locations
Today, Grab announced that it has expanded its Hawker Centre 2.0 pilot programme to 16 additional locations throughout Singapore in a press statement. A total of 199 participants are expected for the programme.
What is Hawker Centre 2.0?
Hawker Centre 2.0 is a pilot programme that supports Singaporean hawkers to digitise their stalls after the impact of COVID-19. The initiative will imitate the experience of customers when they visit a hawker centre by delivering the same food to users at home.
“Hawkers are an integral part of the Singapore social fabric. However, the pandemic has pushed many to kickstart their digital journeys, despite them lacking the know-how or the right resources in optimising their business models.
With Hawker Centre 2.0, we want to play our part in preserving this unique culture of Singapore by seeking a viable model for these stall owners to sell online,” said Yee Wee Tang, Managing Director, Grab Singapore.
