Food delivery services are gaining momentum under limitations governing the movement of people in public places.

As a resourceful alternative to accessing daily needs and wants, food delivery service operators are growing in numbers.

The sudden spring in delivery operators meets a preventative measures against the coronavirus pandemic, as it minimises customer interaction.

Sunbiz reached out to some eateries and cafes and found that the service remained relatively new.

Grace Road Kitchen

Grace Road Kitchen provides food delivery services.

Grace Farm sale manager Ana Choi said the temporary delivery service would provide minimal risks in the deadly virus.

“We advertised via Grace Road Kitchen Facebook page, detailing the numbers for the various Grace Road Kitchen outlets in Suva.

“Customers can contact those numbers directly. We home-deliver for a fee.

“When we do home deliveries, it’s a $5 or $10 charge depending on the location.

“Delivery is to areas around Flagstaff, Damodar City, Midcity, Nakasi, Votualevu and Tamavua.”

Following the Government’s advice to avoid crowding of more than 20 people, the delivery service becomes a convenient way of doing business.

She said the delivery service was temporary to suit the pandemic period.

Ms Choi said since setting up the delivery service, it was noted that customers in Fiji were not used to having food delivered to their door.

She said it would take some time for people to get used to it which is why the company was trialing the service.

“We also supply vegetables to Extra supermarket, so customers can purchase ingredients like vegetables, rice and other products to make similar dishes as our restaurant food,” said Ms Choi.

Grace Road Kitchen’s Fierce Chicken currently has over 10 staff.
