Grab Philippines has expanded its food delivery service to more cities and municipalities in three provinces, in response to customer demand.
In statement, the delivery service said that Grabfood is available in Bulacan (Meycauayan, Marilao, Bocaue, Malolos, Baliuag, San Ildefonso, San Miguel, and Pulilan), Cavite (Tagaytay, Maragondon, Amadeo, and Gen Emilio Aguinaldo), and Laguna (San Pablo, Santa Cruz, Santa Maria, Sinoloan, Mabitac, Famy, Pakil, Pangil, Paete, and Magdalena).
Apart from providing everyday value and convenience to consumers, GrabFood’s expansion creates livelihood opportunities for local merchant- and delivery-partners, boosting socio-economic recovery in new areas.
“We want to serve and empower more Filipinos with this expansion,” said Grab Philippines Head of Deliveries Anton Bautista.
“Grab’s digital platform can help residents and local business owners of Bulacan, Cavite, and Laguna unlock new earning opportunities,” he explained.
First of all, he said, Grab Philippines helps merchant-partners go online and thrive online to become established local businesses in these new areas.
On one hand, local businesses get to digitalize better via solutions like Grab Online Shop and Campaign Packages, as well as programs like Grab’s Annual Merchant Conference, Grab Merchant Academy and financial literacy programs.Grab Philippines delivery-partners from new areas can also get vaccinated at Grab-Makati Vaccination Center.
On the other hand, delivery-partners benefit from support programs, such as the GrabCare Package for calamity aid, hospital assistance, emergency top-up, and educational assistance for their children.
Another program, Ka-Grab Kamustahan Sessions is a virtual townhall helping address partners’ challenges and giving business updates.
