A new online service for Hong Kong, honestbee, promises to deliver groceries in record time to residents. An on-demand concierge grocery delivery service, begun in Singapore, is set to experience the same success here in Hong Kong.
Honestbee yesterday launched the first on-demand grocery delivery service in Hong Kong. The tech startup offers Hong Kongers the convenience of grocery shopping via the online portal with a distinctive human touch. Guaranteeing freshness, concierge shoppers trained by honestbee thoughtfully handpick each item from customers’ online carts and deliver it to their doorsteps within the next hour.
Honestbee began operations in Singapore just two months ago, with many customers delighted by the prompt delivery in addition to the high quality food and produce selected for them by the honestbee concierge shoppers. To date, honestbee has seen tremendous growth, hitting their 2016 targets already in just two months of operations.
honestbee functions as follows:
· Enter your address and start shopping online at any of honestbee’s partner stores.
· Choose a 1 hour delivery window to have your groceries delivered.
· Once the order is placed, an expert honestbee concierge shopper immediately starts picking out your selected items.
There are many personalised, human touches to the platform, such as the choice of selecting similar replacement products when ordering, ensuring items that might be out of stock are provided for in an intuitive, fiss-free manner. Additionally, the shopper will call the buyer if necessary to ensure they're getting what they want.
In addition to honestbee’s promise of offering a one-stop shop for a range products for customers’ convenience, the company is also dedicated to creating economic opportunities for shoppers, offering people with unconventional schedules, like students or stay-home mothers, good jobs through flexible hours and fair pay.
