Kuching Eateries Volunteers Team does bit to help boost sales

Date:

KUCHING: Kuching Eateries Volunteers Team, led by Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) vice-president Datuk Lily Yong,  is helping eatery operators in 22 locations promote their business.

Yong said the Kuching Eateries hotline would assist eatery operators here to get through this difficult time.

“We printed over 10,000 flyers and pamphlets with information on the types of food or beverages the eateries are selling as well as their locations, phone numbers and pick-up method.

“These will be distributed at banks, pharmacies and various other places,” she said during a press conference at Kuching SUPP office in Padungan on Tuesday (July 13).

“We collected details from operators of coffee shops, restaurant and hawker centres, who have shown interest in the programme, and with this initiative, customers can call up the premises first to order food and will not need to queue up too long for take-aways.

“The Kuching Eateries hotline will also help to assist the eatery operators in increasing their sales and reduce customer waiting time as well as minimise traffic congestion while reducing the risk of Covid-19 transmission.”

Meanwhile, Pemanca Datuk John Tiong Tak Chong noted that this initiative would assist Sarawakians in need regardless of their political views, religion and race.

“Certain quarters have raised issues on how the team had worked together with the Federation of Chinese Associations of Kuching, Samarahan and Serian Divisions to channel aid.

“There is no need to make a big deal out of such trivial thing as the food assistance is not politically motivated but sincere to help the needy.”
