Viber, one of the world’s leading free messaging apps, invites Cebuanos to celebrate Cebu’s culinary specialties and other food delights through a first-of-its-kind partnership with food and delivery platform Let’s Eat Bai.
Let’s Eat Bai has launched its own Viber Community giving members exclusive access to promos and updates from their favorite local food businesses as well as food reviews and trivia. To make their conversations more appetizing, Viber and Let’s Eat Bai have created a special sticker pack that also redirects users to the Community after download.
From being Cebu’s biggest and most engaged food community, Let’s Eat Bai has become the go-to e-commerce platform for Cebuanos who are looking for food, drinks, and groceries. Cravings of Cebuanos for hearty Cebuano comfort food like lechon, lechon manok Binisaya, and seafood plus international cuisines like Japanese and Chinese fare are easily satisfied. Household essentials like fruits and vegetables can also be found here.
Cebu’s first homegrown food and delivery app has also become an important partner for local businesses throughout the pandemic. Aside from connecting them to customers, the app allows merchants to request riders for delivery and manage customer payments.
Let’s Eat Bai only takes 10% in commissions from the sellers, while others take as much as 25%. It also has a pool of account managers to handle any incidents in real-time so customers can expect quick responses to inquiries and concerns. And since it’s an app that specifically services Cebu’s food community, foodies can expect to see local food start-ups and businesses that cannot be found in other apps.
“We have always appreciated the support and engagement of the Viber users in Cebu. So, we are truly proud and happy that through the new Let’s Eat Bai Community, Viber is able to serve the Cebu users even more as we bring Cebuano foodies together and support local businesses,” says David Tse, APAC Senior Director at Rakuten Viber.
“With our new Viber Community, we’re excited to give Let’s Eat Bai users greater access to the best food Cebu has to offer while helping our local entrepreneurs not only to survive but thrive within the new business reality,” adds JP Chiongbian, Managing Director at Let’s Eat Bai.
