“As we find ourselves adjusting to this new normal, we see more the importance of saving time given the many things we need to manage in a day. It’s really a faster-paced world now.” Joseph Aruta, senior marketing manager for value platforms category at Jollibee states as the fast food chain introduces a new ordering feature on its app. 

The new Order and Pick Up feature on the Jollibee app lets customers place their orders ahead of time and claim them at their preferred branch.  
The “Order and Pick Up” feature on the Jollibee app allows on-the-go individuals to place their orders ahead and claim them at their preferred branch at their most convenient time.

Using the feature, customers can select a store, specify their preferred time and date of pick-up, and choose their orders using their phone. Upon arrival at the store, they can go directly to the claiming area to collect their orders, or stay in their car while the store crew hands them their order. 

For added convenience, Jollibee also offers cashless modes of payment via debit or credit card. 

Customers can also use the Order and Pick Up service via Facebook Messenger, or by texting or calling their preferred branch. Check out www.jollibeedelivery.com/store-directory.

Food directory

Instant messaging platform Viber enables Philippine users to easily search and purchase homemade dishes and delicacies from micro, small, and medium enterprises through FoodPH. 

FoodPH is Viber’s official food directory that includes micro, small, and medium enterprises.
FoodPH is the official food directory of Viber through which buyers can discover and look for a specific type of food and safely transact with sellers. The directory also allows subscribers to filter suggested food choices based on their location. 

On the other hand, FoodPH also supports local MSMEs by helping them get more reach and visibility on a larger platform. The enterprises that are part of the directory are sourced and accredited by Viber as merchants. Some of them also got to be listed through the help of Globe MyBusiness

“We hope that we’ll be able to help MSMEs bounce back from the effects of the pandemic with this new feature,” says Anna Znamenskaya, chief growth officer of Rakuten Viber. 

“FoodPH is just a realization of Rakuten Viber’s long-time commitment to create easier and more positive mobile experiences for our users.”
