Formerly known as BySGForSG, a not-for-profit initiative that was launched to assist hawkers and other small F&B businesses to maximise their profit margins during the Circuit Breaker, MAKAN GURU is a new social enterprise that will continue the cause of BySGForSG and more.
BYSGForSG has officially transit from a not-for-profit initiative to a social enterprise named MAKAN GURU.
MAKAN GURU is committed to preserve the local hawker culture and keep costs affordable for both vendors and customers. In addition, the team will also be rolling out new initiatives in the coming months to contribute to environmental sustainability to protect the environment – details to be announced soon.
Fair and Transparent Price Model
Upon transiting to MAKAN GURU, existing vendors will continue to be charged a low 5% commission fee on total food bill, while new merchants are offered different commission fees depending on the choices they make, for example:
- 5% commission if the vendor agrees not to mark up their food prices, or
- 10% commission
The commissions are structured to encourage vendors to keep food prices affordable for the benefit of consumers.
All new merchants are not required to pay onboarding or administration fees unlike many other existing food delivery platforms.
MAKAN GURU will continue to support the incomes of about 150 delivery drivers. Food vendors will continue to only fork out a fixed $3.21 island-wide delivery fee per order, while consumers are charged a flat $5.35 island-wide delivery fee per order. 100% of the delivery fees ($8 per trip, excluding GST) collected will be paid out to the delivery drivers.
To welcome the launch of MAKAN GURU and thank existing BYSGForSG users for their support, the MAKAN GURU team is launching a celebratory campaign between 19 – 30 September!
For each completed order during this period, customers will receive a Sure-Win Makan Madness Munch Card, through which they can win a myriad of irresistible prizes that include:
