"GrabFood is a major milestone in our journey to becoming the everyday app for consumers. The launch of GrabFood in Singapore will bring a wide range of dining options to more consumers, and provide more income opportunities for local merchants and delivery partners," said James Ong, Head of GrabFood in Singapore.

There will be a "huge potential" in helping vendors reap incremental benefits and enjoy an increase of orders via GrabFood, Ong added. 

According to a survey conducted last October, a majority of Grab consumers in the region wanted "a one-stop, everyday app that complements their daily lives".

"As we build out an everyday app that offers transport, food and package delivery and mobile payments, Grab is focused on creating a seamless experience and unlocking value for our customers by offering complementary services on one platform," said Head of Grab Singapore Lim Kell Jay.
