Serving Up Delectable Flavours During Rough Times
These local F&B outlets are still providing affordable and finger-lickin’ dishes for customers amidst the Movement Control Order (MCO)
With the MCO enforced since 18 March 2020, Xavier Mah Consultancy (XMC), a Malaysia PR and Branding Agency has taken up the initiative of connecting with local restaurants and F&B outlets that have been heavily impacted during these tough times. As a CSR initiative, XMC lended a helping hand to these businesses by enhancing their brand awareness through brand engagement with their consumers and dissemination of information.
With the spike in demands of food delivery services and seeing the big names and global franchises dominating social media and delivery apps, here is the time to shine the spotlight on local restaurants and F&B outlets that offer more flavor options with more affordable prices.
These restaurants are all located in the Klang Valley and serve scrumptious meals that are all below RM20. Moreover, they are all engaged with food delivery services that will ensure customers get their food while it’s still hot without ever leaving their houses.
The safety and hygiene throughout the food preparation process of these restaurants are closely monitored and strictly maintained at the highest level possible.
