ASIA’S leading online grocery concierge service, Honestbee launched in Cebu last January as a way for Cebu residents to pre-order grocery items and food selections from over 100 Honestbee partner stores within Cebu.

First launched in Singapore in 2015, Honestbee has expanded to key cities in Asia such as Hong Kong, Taipei, Niseko, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bangkok, and Tokyo. Honestbee in the Philippines was first introduced in Metro Manila in mid-2017.

“Honestbee is very happy to finally be in Cebu to make Cebuanos’ lives easier,” said Crystal Gonzalez, Honestbee Philippines’ Country Head.

“We have a Cebu team dedicated to making sure that we offer only the best service of both food and groceries in the Queen City of the South. Though currently we only deliver to Cebu City and Mandaue City we are keen to expand operations to Pardo, Tabunok, Talisay, and Mactan,” Gonzales added.

Their mission is kept honest and simple – to get shoppers what they need, when they need it, creating happy homes with delightful services and flexible jobs. As for in-store concierge shoppers or “bees” as they call it, their paramount focus is to make sure all items on the shopping cart are carefully handpicked to ensure quality and freshness.

The easy-to-use app can be downloaded via Google Play and App Store and is used simply by entering the delivery address and choosing from any of Honestbee’s partner stores including Robinsons Supermarket and Robinsons Selections, Ministop, Seaworld, JN’s Best, Visayan Educational and Office Supplies, Echostore, Life Med, and public markets in Carbon and Tabo-an with indicated business hours and available schedules for delivery. Once orders are placed, an Honestbee concierge shopper personally picks them out in-store.

Beyond groceries, Honestbee also delivers ready-to-eat meals from a carefully-curated selection of partner restaurants, ranging from homegrown favorites to international flavors. Its current roster includes Ilaputi, Handuraw Pizza, Casa Dos, Kusina ni Nasing, SnR, and many more.

They add value to traditional supermarkets, boutique stores, and restaurants as they provide an online platform alternative to expand reach without having to invest in infrastructure.

The desktop version for Honestbee is also available for groceries.
