Online Food Delivery Services in Qatar: Working double-time to meet the demands

It is indeed a trying moment for all us, not only here in Qatar, but around the world. The global pandemic we now call COVID-19 (Corona Virus) has affected a lot of businesses including restaurants and cafes (in some countries, even malls, and hotels). But these businesses still see a thriving potential amidst the situation. In compliance with the recent order of the Qatar government to temporarily stop accepting dine-ins, we are still able to place our orders thru pick-up or delivery via online applications.

Many of these restaurants are also offering their own delivery services, confidently informing the public that they are in compliance not only with the cleanliness standard but are also carrying out safety measures both for their riders and the customers in light of the recent developments in the community. For more details on how to order directly from the restaurants, you may check their individual pages for contact details.

Also, a number of new and small restaurants, have already decided to join the bandwagon as we saw them enrolling in these online delivery apps in order to stay in business. Some may not have the capacity to have their own delivery service and others simply wanted to provide more delivery options to their customers (direct or thru apps).

Here are some of the popular online food delivery companies available in Qatar:

The likes of Entertainer App, Urban Point, My Book Qatar, QGrabs, Haveez, and Copon will be featured on our next post as soon as dine-ins are permitted.

 

SUPPORT THE LOCAL BUSINESSES

I would like to end by saying that WE NEED TO SUPPORT the temporary closures so we can stop this virus from further spreading. THIS TOO SHALL PASS… and when it is all gone, then we can fully support our community again.

Let me also take this chance to remind everyone that give our simple SMILE and THANK YOU to these frontliners (while taking sanitation and protection in mind). On normal occasions, a HIGH FIVE would be great… but not for now, at least.
