How can restaurants and the transportation industry find growth opportunities in the shadow of the pandemic 

<English/Mandarin>


With the current impact of COVID-19 around the world, the economic systems of many countries have been affected terribly due to city closures. Small restaurants are facing operational difficulties as the number of people who go out to eat has been decreasing. Food suppliers have therefore had to move many offline processes online. The conveniences of food delivery and take-out platforms have helped make up the shortfall of walk-in customers for small- and medium-sized businesses. In order to maintain social distancing, restaurants have also had to re-distribute seating, resulting in a drop in restaurant capacity. This has had a strong impact on the catering industry in general.

Every time the epidemic prevention policies are upgraded, government restrictions increase the cost of operation for restaurants. Every affected store is therefore on the lookout for new approaches for sustainable and stable operations during such times.

In April 2020, Startup Grind Taipei will be doing a live broadcast for the first time. It is an honour to invite GOGOVAN Hong Kong’s Business Development Manager, Miriam Wang, to analyze the current situation, and how food delivery/take-out platforms that maintain innovative energy can cooperate with restaurants, as well as how to help restaurants in other localities survive during this period of uncertainty.

Before joining GOGOVAN, Miriam was a member of the core team at FoodPanda in its first stage, in charge of supply chain management and restaurant co-creation. Later on, with her e-commerce experience at PChome, GOGOVAN became a pioneer in the transportation industry. In this hour-long Startup Grind fireside chat, Miriam will share her views on the industry, and the challenges and opportunities for cooperation at retail.


在全球疫情的衝擊下,許多國家的消費經濟體系因為封城而淪為一級慘烈戰場,各地的小型餐廳因為人潮限縮面臨經營困境,為了遵守防疫政策、避免群聚,大眾的飲食消費需求從線下轉為線上,便利的外送服務取代了中小型店家人流;為了保持社交距離,店家也配合將座椅調整位置,導致餐廳容客量大減,強烈衝擊餐飲業。當防疫政策升級,政府限令增加餐廳營運成本,每個受波及的店家都在找尋疫情中能夠持續穩定營運的方針。

2020年四月份Startup Grind Taipei首次以直播的方式,很榮幸的邀請到現任香港GOGOVAN新創公司在台灣的BD Miriam來分析現況,保持創新能量的外帶/外送平台如何與餐廳合作,一起協助各地餐廳度過這波的不確定。

Miriam在加入GOGOVAN之前,是FoodPanda第一階段的核心團隊擔任SCM與餐廳共創,後來藉由在PChome的電商經驗,帶動GOGOVAN成為在運輸產業鏈的新創先鋒。

在這一小時,Miriam將透過爐邊對談的方式來分享自己對於產業觀點及新零售的跨界合作機會及挑戰。
