How to help your favorite restaurants and services survive

Local food and lifestyle app Booky launched #SupportPH, a campaign to aid beloved brands and businesses that were hit hardest by the effects of the pandemic.

In a survey conducted among local businesses, 33% of restaurant owners have had to implement leave without pay, administer pay cuts, or let go of employees. Other establishments, like gyms and salons, rely on in-store activity for income and 80% report complete closure and zero revenue since the ECQ was announced on March 16. Businesses are turning to home deliveries, online activity, and increased brand awareness through social media as lifelines but even then, they do not foresee sales normalizing any time soon.

Filipinos can help these businesses by purchasing discounted digital vouchers from their favorite brands on the #SupportPH website. Following a “help now, enjoy later” format, the proceeds will go directly to the establishments and the customer can redeem or claim their voucher up to three months after the establishment reopens.

For the customer, they can enjoy a discounted treat or service at up to 50% off while supporting their favorite brands. For the establishments, #SupportPH allows them to use this income to immediately support themselves while revenue is at its lowest.

Booky, known for its directory and digital coupons for discounts, helps people discover the best in their city. With its #SupportPH campaign, users can choose to buy and support multiple businesses from one website. The purchase of a milk tea or haircut voucher may not look like much, but when pooled together, these purchases make a difference in the effort to hoist and keep these much-loved brands running.
